Dear Ego State Colleagues, Therapists, and Friends,

Thanks to the input and suggestions from the ESTI community we were able to bring a distinct new and personal flavour to the Newsletter. One could with reason expect to have the Newsletter focus on intellectual, academic and developmental issues. But, we are a relatively small and specialized group of professionals that aims to establish EST within a wider world. We believe that in being approachable, more connected and willing to share on a personal level, we will strengthen the sense of community and the drive to expand our knowledge and thinking.

We take great pleasure in presenting an interview Dr Maggie Phillips conducted with the esteemed Dr Arreed Barabasz. He advocates a specific and thought-provoking stance on treating combat stress making use of Ego State Therapy techniques. The ESTI community extends a special thank you to Dr Barabasz for the willingness to share both his extensive knowledge and experience, but also enabling the readers to experience the enthusiasm he carries for this work.

The diversity of application of EST is further demonstrated in Dr Maggie Phillips’ article on The Wounded Healer, finding some points of reference with Dr Barabasz. This illustrates the beauty and the art of psychology and hypnosis within the present timeframe, allowing the professional to match intrinsic knowledge both with the client and the presenting problem, but also within a framework which the professional is comfortable working in. None of us is expected to agree with all or utilize all.

A special place will in future be reserved to introduce our members. Within this issue you are introduced to some of the most recent therapists to receive their ESTI certificates. We anticipate that this will fill you with the same sense of hope and appreciation we experienced in reading these contributions.

Dr Maggie Phillips & Dr Heleen Malherbe
