Full Title: Evaluation of a meridian-based intervention, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), for reducing specific phobias of small animals.

This study explored whether a meridian-based procedure, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), can reduce specific phobias of small animals under laboratory-controlled conditions. Randomly assigned participants were treated individually for 30 min with EFT (n = 18) or a comparison condition, diaphragmatic breathing (DB) (n = 17). ANOVAS revealed that EFT produced significantly greater improvement than did DB behaviorally and on three self-report measures, but not on pulse rate. The greater improvement for EFT was maintained, and possibly enhanced, at six- to nine-months follow-up on the behavioral measure. These findings suggest that a single treatment session using EFT to reduce specific phobias can produce valid behavioral and subjective effects. Some limitations of the study also are noted and clarifying research suggested. Copyright 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Psychol.

Of course, hard work, practice, and effort were normally part of the equation. However, I could not find one single example of any achievement that did not start with a spark of an...

Bullying not allowed

Bullying is a condition or situation where one or more people are involved with aggression that is so excessive as cause extreme psychological stress for others. Unfortunately, it is a fact of life in international affairs, politics, organizational dynamics, and with individuals. By its ubiquitous nature it should be obvious that it has always played a role in our society. This, however, does not mean that we should not be concerned. The predominant problem with bullying is its affect on the victims. When it occurs the recipient must cope and adjust behavior. This can either cause...

Food, health, and hypnosis

According to widely available statistics, too many people in Western countries failed to follow diets conducive to good health. Obesity is a major problem. While efforts are made to encourage healthy diets and proper exercise, they fail to be adequate. Food serves the dual function. Not only is it necessary for physical nourishment, it also has a significant role in our feelings of emotional well-being. Additionally, it is related to our survival instinct. Thus we eat not only to survive physically, but also to survive emotionally. Our perceived need to handle negative stress and any...
