Brief hypnosis intervention to control venepuncture-related pain of paediatric cancer patients.


Venepuncture for blood sampling can be a distressing experience for a considerable number of children. A prospective controlled trial was conducted to compare the efficacy of a local anaesthetic (EMLA) with a combination of EMLA with self-hypnosis in the relief of venepuncture-induced pain and anxiety in 45 paediatric cancer outpatients (age 6-16years). A secondary aim of the trial was to test whether the intervention will have a beneficial effect on parents' anxiety levels during their child's procedure. Patients were randomized to one of three groups: local anaesthetic, local anaesthetic plus hypnosis, and local anaesthetic plus attention. Results confirmed that patients in the local anaesthetic plus hypnosis group reported less anticipatory anxiety, and less procedure-related pain and anxiety, and were rated as demonstrating less behavioural distress during the procedure than patients in the other two groups. Parents whose children were randomized to the local anaesthetic plus hypnosis condition experienced less anxiety during their child's procedure than parents whose children had been randomized to the other two conditions. The therapeutic benefit of the brief hypnotic intervention was maintained in the follow-up. The present findings are particularly important in that this study was a randomized, controlled trial conducted in a naturalistic medical setting. In this context, convergence of subjective and objective outcomes was reached with large effect sizes that were consistently supportive of the beneficial effects of self-hypnosis, an intervention that can be easily taught to children, is noninvasive and poses minimal risk to young patients and their parents.

3 Essential Steps for Masterful Training

For years I have studied experts in a wide range of endeavors, included sports, science, and the arts, as well as professional trainers. There are three attributes that each of them share. They have developed an exceptional ability to install new information, to increase the depth of their knowledge, and have the ability to trigger superior performance with ease. These three steps apply both to the trainer’s skills as well as to how to accelerate the student’s progress.

My studies have involved two groups of people. The first are those that either started early in life or have...

Is Coffee and Caffeine Ruining your Life?

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...

Success Means Daring to be Committed

Unless you are one of very few lucky people, most likely the only way that you will ever be successful is to commit to taking the massive action required to achieve a goal. Star athletes, successful business people, and even those who have found the love of their lives realize that without commitment, nothing will ever be achieved. So, if this is such as well-established fact, why isn’t everyone a total success. The answer to that question is that for too many people several of the areas of their brain, which should normally help them become masters of their universe, have enabled them to...
