We received a very nice email from Betty Erickson, the daughter of the renowned Milton Erickson. She wrote:
What a tremendous service you do!
As the daughter of Milton H. Erickson, I get emails from people all the time about having me train them in hypnosis. Sometimes legitimate, sometimes I-lost-my-job-and-want-to-earn-money-with-hypnosis, but most of the time from people w/ Ph.D. and Master's who want the credibility of me -a Master's Level (earned degree, although I do have an honorary Ph.D. from Armenia because of my name).
I've been teaching daddy's work for 30+ years. Google me, and Daddy.
Milton H. Erickson, M.D., and I am Betty Alice Erickson --use both names.
Point of this email is to thank you. I will publicize your site. Also, can I hope you in any way?
Sincerely, Betty Alice Erickson.
Dear Ms. Erickson:
We are very grateful for your support and encouragement! Please spread the word about this blog everywhere and anywhere. We also encourage readers to let us know about the con-artists purporting to have earned PhDs -it seems that more pop up faster than we can keep track.
Again thank you for your support!
