Suggestibility, expectancy, trance state effects, and hypnotic depth: II.
Full Title: Suggestibility, expectancy, trance state effects, and hypnotic depth: II. Assessment via the PCI-HAP.
This study sought to determine if self-reported hypnotic depth (srHD) could be predicted from the variables of the Phenomenology of Consciousness Inventory - Hypnotic Assessment Procedure (PCI-HAP) (Pekala, 1995a, 1995b; Pekala & Kumar, 2007; Pekala et al., 2010), assessing several of the processes theorized by researchers to be associated with hypnotism: trance (altered state effects), suggestibility, and expectancy. One hundred and eighty participants completed the PCI-HAP. Using regression analyses, srHD scores were predicted from the PCI-HAP pre-hypnotic and post-hypnotic assessment items, and several other variables. The results suggested that the srHD scores were found to be a function of imagoic suggestibility, expectancy (both estimated hypnotic depth and expected therapeutic efficacy), and trance state and eye catalepsy effects; effects that appear to be additive and not (statistically) interactive. The results support the theorizing of many investigators concerning the involvement of the aforementioned component processes with this particular aspect of hypnotism, the self-reported hypnotic depth score.

When used by a qualified and talented hypnotherapist it can be used for a wide range of mental health, medical, and performance-oriented applications. Therefore, the primary uses of hypnosis are healing the body, healing the mind, and self-actualization.

Without stress we would have very little motivation. We are constantly assessing the balance between our capabilities and perceived difficulties of the challenges that we face every day. When we are inspired, we are motivated to show that our capabilities clearly outweigh the obstacles in front of us. However, even if we are successful, prolonged periods of stress can have its toll. This is why we need to achieve as much balance in life as possible. On the other hand, there are times that the things that stress us may seem to exceed our capabilities to handle them. Likewise, this adds to the...
Generally, grief is considered a response to the loss of someone or something to which a person is attached. More specifically, however, this condition represents a situation in which there is a major disruption in the patterns to which a person has become accustomed. As the patterns of interaction with a person or thing with which a person is specifically strongly bonded are some of the most powerful, the coping and adjustment period is often one with very intense suffering. This they have been when there's a loss of a spouse, a parent, a sibling, or even the loss of a home due to disaster...
