Early childhood trauma has lasting and dramatic effects on attachment formation and on the later capacity for intimacy and mutuality. Instead of experiencing relationships as a haven of safety, traumatized couples are driven by powerful wishes for and fears of closeness.

Para este video de una hora, buscamos dentro del archivo Erickson entre 1973 y 1978, dentro de los seminarios didácticos de Milton Erickson. Erickson condujo estos seminarios didácticos en la comodidad e intimidad de su propio hogar. En este video, encontramos tres casos- cada uno manejando principalmente un trauma. Y en cada uno de estos casos, hay un significado oculto. Erickson demuestra como tomar información “extraña” provista por el cliente; comprender el contexto de forma relevante al problema del cliente, y perspicazmente, extrapola el verdadero significado para tener un efecto terapéutico.
