Full Title: Assessing the immediate and maintained effects of hypnosis on self-efficacy and soccer wall-volley performance

This study evaluated the effects of hypnosis on self-efficacy and soccer performance. Fifty-nine collegiate soccer players were randomly allocated to either a hypnosis (n = 30) or video attention-control group (n = 29). A pretest-posttest design with an additional 4-week follow-up was used. Self-efficacy was measured via a task-specific questionnaire comprising 10 items relating to good performance on a soccer wall-volley task. The hypnotic intervention comprised three sessions using ego-strengthening suggestions. The control group watched edited videos of professional soccer games. Results indicated that, following the intervention, the hypnosis group were more efficacious and performed better than the control group. These differences were also seen at the 4-week follow-up stage. Although changes in self-efficacy were associated with changes in performance, the effect of hypnosis on performance was not mediated by changes in self-efficacy. The study demonstrates that hypnosis can be used to enhance and maintain self-efficacy and soccer wall-volley performance.

You vs your co-worker: How to win disputes at work

Intra-office conflicts often happen because of the way different people or groups operate mentally. Simplistically, I look at how a person’s typical use of their brain affects the way that they approach problems. This can easily be divided into feelings (i.e. limbic) and thinking (i.e. cognitive). Thus a person who takes a rather emotional approach will frequently be in conflicts with those who are thinkers. Likewise, if a thinking person attempts to reason with a feeling one, they will not connect. Of course, this does not mean that two limbic-oriented people will not have a difficulty...

Trust and hypnosis

When it comes to trusting another person or organization, it is all about predictability. Does the other entity conform with pre-existing patterns of expectation? If not there is a high-level of uncertainty. While we would always like our expectations be met, that is not always the case. Therefore, it is a matter of judgment whether there's a reasonable expectation of predictability or not. It is reasonable that over time a person will develop a reasonably accurate ability to judge. However, if that level of confidence never develops, it could be said that the person has a significant problem...

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...
