I was nervous about this initially, being that I've been in recovery for 14 years and wasn't sure what to expect from this presentation. After viewing it, I was really pleased as it lined up with everything I've learned and follow and added in aspects to use with hypnosis. I am considering having this as an area of focus in my practice.

I appreciated having the whole class dedicated to E & P. I recognize that it is a basic concept in HMI and I continue to struggle to sort it out. This helped a lot, but would have been more helpful to have this earlier in the line up of videos.

It would be much more helpful if the the lecture is split into 2 separate lectures pertaining to the subject being introduced: 1- shorter one hour lecture for the history, approach, and comparisons of ericksonian method vs. others. 2- longer 2 hour one lecture for examples regarding the model as they are numerous and are best explained through an example and a story of each pattern. (would make it more fun as well) Overall, I found this information to be very helpful, and the instructor very clear. Thanks!
