One of the most influential figures in the development of Stephen Gilligan and Gunther Schmidt was the psychiatrist and hypnotherapist Milton Erickson, MD
What can be considered as the most important idea in Milton Erickson's work is the utilitarian principle . It encourages all parts of a client's experience, both positive and negative, to be accepted and used creatively.
Implicit in this principle is the idea that the meaning and effect of an experience pattern results from the (human) relationship (!) To it. This means that by creatively adopting "negative" patterns, they can be perceived and used as positive resources.
