Just Do Good Work: A Simple Guide Towards the Evolution Of Us Psychotherapists After Erickson (Paperback)
Rob McNeilly was one of the fortunate few to learn directly from Milton Erickson. In constant, chronic pain and confined to a wheelchair due to residuals of polio, Erickson perfumed the atmosphere with the spirit of, "Of course you can. Of course you can change. Of course you can cope adequately." McNeilly learned well from his mentor: Just Do Good Work is nuanced with the rich essence of expectancy, understanding, and connection. Those who want to be better clinicians will do well to absorb McNeilly's message.Jeffrey K Zeig, PhDThe Milton H Erickson FoundationMcNeilly's voice weaves together with that of Milton Erickson's and others to direct therapists on a journey of inspiration.
