Erickson's Miss Anita A is an excellent example. He worked with her for about three months, using every hypnotic technique that he could, but found himself unable to break down her amnesia for the first twenty-two years of her life and for most of the eight subsequent years. Every hypnotic device he knew proved of no avail. But when he used time distortion, in just twenty seconds of distorted time he was able to get Miss Anita A to recover, for later narration, her entire history.
