Hypnotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy of acute stress disorder:
The long-term benefits of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for trauma survivors with acute stress disorder were investigated by assessing patients 3 years after treatment. Civilian trauma survivors (n=87) were randomly allocated to six sessions of CBT, CBT combined with hypnosis, or supportive counselling (SC), 69 completed treatment, and 53 were assessed 2 years post-treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale. In terms of treatment completers, 2 CBT patients (10%), 4 CBT/hypnosis patients (22%), and 10 SC patients (63%) met PTSD criteria at 2-years follow-up. Intent-to-treat analyses indicated that 12 CBT patients (36%), 14 CBT/hypnosis patients (46%), and 16 SC patients (67%) met PTSD criteria at 2-year follow-up. Patients who received CBT and CBT/hypnosis reported less re-experiencing and less avoidance symptoms than patients who received SC. These findings point to the long-term benefits of early provision of CBT in the initial month after trauma.

One word that quickly calms the most ardent medical...

However, despite numerous coaches, counselors, therapists, and social workers being readily available, too often this only results in information overload and inaction. This is true both regarding people who need formal clinical assistance in order to address some type moderate to severe mental health concern and for those who would benefit from just a little coaching and understanding.
Over the past several decades I have been repeatedly exposed to various types of transformational theories and practices....
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. This is due to health and medical care costs, lost production, motor vehicle accidents, violent crime, and other various social costs. 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...
