Imagery Works as Well as Actual Practice


Researchers from the Department of OBGYN at Texas A&M University Health Sciences Center tested the effects of varying the amount of physical practice vs. mental imagery rehearsal for training medical students to perform basic surgical procedures.


Using a sample of 65 second-year medical students, 3 randomized groups received either: (1) 3 sessions of physical practice on suturing a pig's foot; (2) 2 sessions of physical practice and 1 session of mental imagery rehearsal; or (3) 1 session of physical practice and 2 sessions of imagery rehearsal.All participants then performed a surgery on a live rabbit in the operating theater of a veterinary college under approved conditions. Analysis of variance was applied to pre- and post-treatment ratings of surgical performance.

The findings showed that physical practice followed by mental imagery rehearsal was statistically equal to additional physical practice. The researchers conclude that initial physical practice, followed by mental imagery rehearsal, may be a cost-effective method of training medical students in learning basic surgical skills.

Getting over Public Speaking Phobias

Frequently I hear that speaking in public is the number one fear in America and probably the world. Why is it that people will more likely risk their lives rather than get up in front of a group of strangers or even people who they know well? If this describes you, think for a moment. You become self-conscious and tense. Your blood pressure goes up. Your mind is racing. You are afraid that you won’t remember what to say. You are afraid that you will look like a fool? You even remember your last attempt and have never gotten over that experience.

Fortunately, this does not need to...

What are warts?

One of the most undisputed, but unusual, fact is that hypnosis can often be used to successfully get rid of warts. This is because warts are caused by a very specific said of human viruses. The presumption has always been that the use of hypnosis for medical applications is rather limited to only psychosomatic illnesses. However, warts are most deftly not the result of all-the-mind, psychosomatic disorders. One of the earliest cases involving warts being removed to the use of hypnosis happened during World War II. In that case, a medical doctor used the power of suggestion to facilitate...

What is hypnotherapy?

The definition of hypnotherapy is one that receives very little consensus among associations and lawmakers. Of course, it involves a process of hypnosis. In general, debates are often centered on whether the practice of hypnotherapy involves the practice of medicine or psychology and psychotherapy. The word hypnotherapy is a contraction for hypnosis and therapy. Hypnosis is a process whereby a subject's ability to focus their thinking is made more efficient and effective. On the other hand, therapy, which is synonymous with treatment, is a process that is intended to resolve a problem with...
