Hypnotherapy and ADHD - Steve G. Jones






Self-mutilating behavior in patients with dissociative disorders.


BACKGROUND: Despite the fact that the assumption of a relationship between self-mutilation and dissociative disorders (DD) has a long history, there is little empirical evidence to support this premise. The present study examined this relationship and investigated whether this commonality is associated with innate hypnotic capacity. METHODS: Fifty patients diagnosed with DD and 50 control subjects with major depression were assessed by using a self-mutilation questionnaire, Dissociative Experiences Scale, Traumatic Experiences Checklist, and the Eye-Roll Sign for their self-mutilating behaviors, dissociative symptoms, early trauma, and innate hypnotic capacity, respectively. RESULTS: We have found that 82% of the present sample of patients with DD injured themselves. They had higher scores on trauma, dissociation and eye-roll measurements than controls. In addition, DD patients with self-mutilation were more likely to have high scores of trauma, dissociation and eye-roll than those without self-mutilation. Innate hypnotic capacity was a strong predictor of self-mutilating behavior in DD patients. CONCLUSIONS: This study strongly supports the assumption that patients with DD are at high risk for self-mutilating behavior and points to the necessity of routine screening for self-mutilating behavior as well as the hypnotic capacity which may constitute a high risk for self-injury in this patient group.

Women's health and hypnosis

Very early in my study of hypnotherapy I was required to focus on many issues of women's health as relates to my field. I became interested in the number of reproductive-related issues that can be affected by a woman's mental state. There are a high number of researchers who had looked into how stress affects various issues regarding a woman's health. As way too many in the medical field considered hypnosis primarily as a stress reduction tool, they were more than willing to look at the relationship between hypnosis and woman's health. Over the years there has been more interest in looking at...

Lowering your blood pressure through stress reduction

Elevated blood pressure can be a sign of several severe medical problems. So this is something that affects you, please see a qualified medical specialist immediately. When someone is undergoing clinical care for elevated blood pressure, the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy can be very helpful. This is due to the fact that this situation may be due to a negative stress condition. If a person anticipates that they're constantly in a threatening situation, the appropriate parts of the brain activity. However, if this occurs recurrently, they're clearly training their mind and body to expect...

Taking the Fear Out of Flying

Flying to your destination in a commercial aircraft is the safest and one of most popular modes of transportation. The amount of regulations and the level of control exceed that of any other method of getting to your destination. Yet, too many people cannot enjoy flying due to a learned and admittedly illogical fear.

Our brain allows us to anticipate. Often this superior function of the human brain provides us a valuable service. Without it many of the typical functions of everyday life would not be possible. However, since most of our brain and body is meant to react and does not...
