Identification of children who may benefit from self-hypnosis at a pediatric pulmonary center
Emotional difficulties can trigger respiratory symptoms. Thus, children presenting with respiratory complaints may benefit from a psychological intervention. The purpose of this study was to define the proportion of patients referred to a Pediatric Pulmonary Center who may benefit from instruction in self-hypnosis, as a psychological intervention.
METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted for all newly referred patients to the SUNY Upstate Medical University Pediatric Pulmonary Center during an 18 month period beginning January 1, 2000. Patients were offered hypnosis if they presented with symptoms or signs suggestive of psychological difficulties. Hypnosis was taught in one or two 15-45 minute sessions by a pediatric pulmonologist. RESULTS: Of 725 new referrals, 424 were 0-5 years old, 193 were 6-11 years old, and 108 were 12-18 years old. Diagnoses of anxiety, habit cough, or vocal cord dysfunction accounted for 1% of the 0-5 year olds, 20% of the 6-11 year olds, and 31% of the 12-18 year olds. Hypnotherapy was offered to 1% of 0-5 year olds, 36% of 6-11 year olds, and 55% of 12-18 year olds. Of 81 patients who received instruction in self-hypnosis for anxiety, cough, chest pain, dyspnea, or inspiratory difficulties, 75% returned for follow-up, and among the returning patients 95% reported improvement or resolution of their symptoms. CONCLUSION: A large number of patients referred to a Pediatric Pulmonary Center appeared to benefit from instruction in self-hypnosis, which can be taught easily as a psychological intervention.

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.
What’s wrong with having a mug of coffee occasionally? No, there is nothing wrong with the enjoying a tasty, warm cup of Joe or a delicious soft drink. However, when these behaviors become uncontrollable compulsions that affect your routine, relationships, finances, and health, then it is time to start the change process.
Caffeine is a stimulant that is followed by an almost immediate feeling of relaxation. For some, this becomes an endless cycle that requires constantly refilling your coffee cup or making yet another trip to the vending machine to get your Diet Coke fix. This...
The concept of hypnosis is one that involves many misconceptions and incorrect definitions. Some tried to define hypnosis based upon a variety of results that may be observed. For instance, a hypnotic subject may experience mental and physical manifestations that are somewhat different than normal. Heightened awareness, which is also called a trance state, frequently happens when a person undergoes what would be considered some form of hypnotic ritual. The existence of a trance state is central to the definition used by many hypnotherapeutic associations and the American Psychological...
