I saw a documentary on Erickson and then went a read a book about some of his techniques. It is hynotherapy but it does sound like he encourages some dissociation in his clients as he works with them. He lets them drift to an altered state and then tells stories or makes suggestions, etc. I haven't decided if I think this is would be interesting or scary. I like the teaching with antidotes and metaphors part. But the trance stuff makes me nervous.

I'd always thought of dissociation as a protective, blocking state before I saw/read about this.
