Hypnotherapy To Stop Smoking

Psychological intervention - a critical element of rehabilitation in chronic pulmonary diseases.

Chronic pulmonary diseases represent a segment of pathology with an increasing prevalence worldwide, this requiring joint efforts from specialists in this field to (a) identify those factors insufficiently explored so far, but critical for their evolution and (b) address them via new therapies. This study aims to explore the existing data regarding the psychological factors involved in the dynamics of chronic pulmonary diseases and the main possibilities of psychological intervention, as a distinct part of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR). 49 articles published on this topic in peer-reviewed journals between 1979 and 2010, indexed in PubMed, ProQuest and EBSCO databases, were examined for evidence. Among psychological factors considered important by study authors were the following: 1) the deficient instruction of the patient, 2) decreased treatment motivation, 3) a marginal social role, 4) a disadaptive cognitive style and 5) psychiatric comorbidity (especially anxiety and depression). Efficient interventions were, for physicians, 1) patient education and 2) designing a personalized self-management plan, and for the clinical psychologists, 1) cognitive-behavioral therapy, 2) biofeedback, 3) family therapy, 4) relaxation and 5) hypnosis. Despite the undeniable effect of these methods in selected cases, the high heterogeneity of designs and personal affiliations of researchers do not allow new generalizations about their efficacy or their routine implementation into PR. Further research including larger samples, more uniform designs, construction of consensual international standards regarding the objectives of PR, and assessments done by experts from multiple study domains could contribute to a better understanding of the role psychological interventions could play in PR.

Are You Blocking Abundance?

Too often I encounter people – many of whom are degreed and licensed professionals – who have a phobia about money. Perhaps they grew up thinking that everyone who was well off achieved their wealth through dishonest means. Regardless, I frequently hear them apologizing when they do make an unusual amount of money or constantly saying that making money is not their goal.

Although abundance comes in several mediums such as friends and wonderful experiences, here I am going to concentrate on money as being a representation of abundance and wealth. This rather narrow definition...

Bullying at your workplace

Some sources estimate that over one third of US workers are readily bullied at work. This is surprising because we normally associate bullying at something that happens during our youth. Bullying is a form of dominance play. It is used to allocate essential survival resources as well as resources involving relationships and self-fulfillment. What we're finding is this dominance play continues to into our adulthood. Furthermore, the perpetrators are often people who have been previously bullied and never received adequate counseling or other psychological care. Yes, victims of bullying often...

Trust and hypnosis

When it comes to trusting another person or organization, it is all about predictability. Does the other entity conform with pre-existing patterns of expectation? If not there is a high-level of uncertainty. While we would always like our expectations be met, that is not always the case. Therefore, it is a matter of judgment whether there's a reasonable expectation of predictability or not. It is reasonable that over time a person will develop a reasonably accurate ability to judge. However, if that level of confidence never develops, it could be said that the person has a significant problem...
