Dr. phil. Margot Götte-El Fartoukh, psychologist, pedagogue and linguist, is fascinated by the possibility of using Milton Erickson’s hypnotherapy to influence processes that are instinctively controlled. In her dissertation, she explored how developing a coherent narrative helps parents overcome their mourning after the death of their malformed baby (https://www.db- thueringen.de/receive/dbt_mods_00029913).
