CBT and hypnosis intervention on positive and negative affect during breast cancer radiotherapy.
Breast cancer radiotherapy can be an emotionally difficult experience. Despite this, few studies have examined the effectiveness of psychological interventions to reduce negative affect, and none to date have explicitly examined interventions to improve positive affect among breast cancer radiotherapy patients. The present study examined the effectiveness of a multimodal psychotherapeutic approach, combining cognitive-behavioral therapy and hypnosis (CBTH), to reduce negative affect and increase positive affect in 40 women undergoing breast cancer radiotherapy. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either CBTH or standard care. Participants completed weekly self-report measures of positive and negative affect. Repeated and univariate analyses of variance revealed that the CBTH approach reduced levels of negative affect [F(1, 38)=13.49; p=.0007, omega(2)=.56], and increased levels of positive affect [F(1, 38)=9.67; p=.0035, omega(2)=.48], during the course of radiotherapy. Additionally, relative to the control group, the CBTH group demonstrated significantly more intense positive affect [F(1, 38)=7.09; p=.0113, d=.71] and significantly less intense negative affect [F(1, 38)=10.30; p=.0027, d=.90] during radiotherapy. The CBTH group also had a significantly higher frequency of days where positive affect was greater than negative affect (85% of days assessed for the CBTH group versus 43% of the Control group) [F(1, 38)=18.16; p=.0001, d=1.16]. Therefore, the CBTH intervention has the potential to improve the affective experience of women undergoing breast cancer radiotherapy.

According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Science, alcoholism and the various forms of alcohol abuse costs the United States between $40 and $60 billion annually.

People who have alcoholism or alcohol addiction frequently need medical or mental health assistance before being able to quit.
Most people do not understand the difference between alcoholism and alcohol addictions. The former is an allergy, which involves the body’s...
“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...
Good stress puts wind in our sails. It makes things happen. However, when we fail to balance our lives, excessive negative stress can make our existence a living hell. When we lack confidence that we can handle a situation our brain and body go into a defensive, fight-flight reaction. The major organs of our body cease to function adequately and our immune system becomes suppressed.

You probably know people who thrive on challenge and seem to...
