Teamwork approach to clinical hypnosis at a pediatric pulmonary center.
The aim of this report is to demonstrate the success of a teamwork approach for providing instruction in self-hypnosis at a Pediatric Pulmonary Center. In order to add to the hypnosis service provided by a pulmonologist at the Center, the Center social worker learned how to use clinical hypnosis. During a 3-year period, she instructed 72 patients (average age 11.6 years) in self-hypnosis. Eighty-two percent of the patients reported improvement or resolution of the primary symptoms, which included anxiety, asthma, chest pain, dyspnea, habit cough, hyperventilation, sighing, and vocal cord dysfunction. The social worker and pulmonologist consulted with each other on a regular basis regarding their hypnosis work, and achieved similar successful results following their hypnosis interventions. Thus, clinical hypnosis at a Pediatric Pulmonary Center can be provided by a team of varied professionals. As a team, these professionals can support each other in their on-going development of hypnosis skills.

However, a psychologist would look at this slightly differently. What she may be looking at is the effect that a level of confidence would have on a person's self-esteem. A person's self-awareness or ego can...
Why worry about the things that we can’t control? But we do. Our superior brain allows us to anticipate. This is often to our advantage as it allows us to plan ahead and adapt to what we think may happen. However, when our imagination is out of control, this same tool will cause us misery. At that point it often needlessly activates our fight-flight mechanism. This in turn makes us unhappy and can eventually damage our immune system.
Unlike others, people who excessively worry have learned this behavior over time. It could even have been caused by a family member or friend who...
As nutrition is so vital to our body’s health, why do so many of us turn this necessity into a problem? Normally, the answer lies in the fact that we have corrupted many of the natural capabilities of our brain. We have learned that eating not only serves as a requirement to provide nutrients to our cells and organs, it has somehow become linked to our stress-fighting defense mechanism. So, how do we transition from eating for stress to once again primarily eating for health?
The essential problem is that there is a tremendously close relationship between the parts of our brain that handle...
