Mediators of a brief hypnosis intervention to control side effects in breast surgery patients


Full Title: Mediators of a brief hypnosis intervention to control side effects in breast surgery patients: Response expectancies and emotional distress.

Objective: The present study was designed to test the hypotheses that response expectancies and emotional distress mediate the effects of an empirically validated presurgical hypnosis intervention on postsurgical side effects (i.e., pain, nausea, and fatigue). Method: Women (n = 200) undergoing breast-conserving surgery (mean age = 48.50 years; 63% White, 15% Hispanic, 13% African American, and 9% other) were randomized to a hypnosis or to an attention control group. Prior to surgery, patients completed assessments of hypothesized mediators (response expectancies and emotional distress), and following surgery, patients completed assessments of outcome variables (pain, nausea, and fatigue). Results: Structural equation modeling revealed the following: (a) Hypnotic effects on postsurgical pain were partially mediated by pain expectancy (p < .0001) but not by distress (p = .12); (b) hypnotic effects on postsurgical nausea were partially mediated by presurgical distress (p = .02) but not by nausea expectancy (p = .10); and (c) hypnotic effects on postsurgical fatigue were partially mediated by both fatigue expectancy (p = .0001) and presurgical distress (p = .02). Conclusions: The results demonstrate the mediational roles of response expectancies and emotional distress in clinical benefits associated with a hypnotic intervention for breast cancer surgical patients. More broadly, the results improve understanding of the underlying mechanisms responsible for hypnotic phenomena and suggest that future hypnotic interventions target patient expectancies and distress to improve postsurgical recovery.

Finding Meaning in Your Life

What does a fulfilled life mean? Certainly it is much more than just paying bills, having kids, and comfortably retiring. There simply must be much more to living than that. Over the years I’ve worked with countless people who feel that something is missing. Yet, they don’t know what.

Back in the 1943, the American psychologist Abraham Maslow gave us a theory that endures until today. He specified that people have a “hierarchy of needs,” which stipulates that needs must be satisfied in this order: physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem, and then self-actualization.

When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears

“When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears” – Anthony Robbins, Self Help Guru

There has been much written in the last couple of years about the law of attraction, attracting wealth and manifesting prosperity. Just rub the universe’s magic lamp and whatever you wish will appear. “The Secret” movie inspired hundreds of thousands to believe temporarily in a universe under our control, rather than a fickle mistress.

But so many people missed the whole point about the law of attraction and abundance. They perceived prosperity and wealth as being only...

The Wisdom of Commitment Quotes

These are some of my favorite inspirational commitment quotes. “Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.” – Anthony Robbins “There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” – Author Unknown “Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the "right stuff" to turn our dreams into reality.” – James Womack “Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and...
