||This long out-of-print study brings to the forefront Milton H. Erickson's major collaboration with Linn F. Cooper on time distortion. Originally published in 1959 and revised and updated in 1982, this volume will be welcomed by everyone who follows the work of Erickson or the use of hypnosis in a therapeutic setting. Time distortion, the difference between the real time of an incident and the perceived time of an incident, and its non-therapeutic implications, are comprehensively explored. In addition, the clinical phenomena involved, with specific reference to therapeutic applications, are discussed and studied. Furthermore, clear and fully illustrative case material complements this experimental and clinical investigation. This important work also features an additional section, 'Subjective Time Condensation as Distinct from Time Expansion'.
