Measuring hypnotizability: the case for self-report depth scales and normative data.
Conventional suggestion-based tests of hypnotizability have been criticized because they confound hypnotic and nonhypnotic suggestibility. One way around this might be to measure hypnotizability in terms of differences in suggestibility before and after hypnotic induction. However, analysis of data from a 1966 classic study by Hilgard and Tart confirms that difference scores are subject to statistical and methodological problems. Simple verbal hypnotic depth scales are presented as a useful alternative. They correlate well with conventional suggestion-based measures and enable the presence of hypnosis to be indexed independently of formal hypnotic induction procedures. Criticisms of depth scales are addressed, and normative data for the Long Stanford Scale of hypnotic depth are presented, along with data lending empirical support for the construct validity of depth reports.

There are many ways to think about health. One definition states that it is merely about metabolic efficiency. Others consider that it is the absence of pain, injury, or illness. Regardless, it does refer to a general condition involving a person's mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, when good working definition would state that health is a situation or condition in which the mind, body, and spirit has achieved a state of balance, which is also called homeostasis.
Essentially, we are a complex amalgam of integrated entities. This includes proteins, genes, cells, organs, our mind, and what...
When I work with bodybuilders, I teach them the relationship between how they conceive the shape of their body and how it actually is. Going further, I show them how by changing their mental image of their body, they can actually accelerate improving their strength, building up muscle mass, and burning off fat. Even though most people are more concerned about losing a few pounds and improving their physical fitness and not winning a bodybuilding competition, these lessons may very well apply to them as well.
The brain maintains a map of every organ and cell of our body. When we are ill, a...
