“Concerning psychotherapy, most therapists overlook a basic consideration. Man is characterized not only by mobility but by cognition and by emotion, and man defends his intellect emotionally. No two people necessarily have the same ideas, but all people will defend their ideas whether they are psychotically based or personally based. When you understand how man really defends his intellectual ideas and how emotional he gets about it, you should realize that the first thing in psychotherapy is not to try to compel him to change his ideation, rather you go along with it and change it in a gradual fashion and create situations wherein he himself willingly changes his thinking.”
Milton H. Erickson to Jeffrey Zeig, December 3, 1973
