How Hypnotherapy Actually Works






Hypnosis, hypnotic suggestibility, memory, and involvement in films.


Our research extends studies that have examined the relation between hypnotic suggestibility and experiential involvement and the role of an hypnotic induction in enhancing experiential involvement (e.g., absorption) in engaging tasks. Researchers have reported increased involvement in reading (Baum & Lynn, 1981) and music-listening (Snodgrass & Lynn, 1989) tasks during hypnosis. We predicted a similar effect for film viewing: greater experiential involvement in an emotional (The Champ) versus a non-emotional (Scenes of Toronto) film. We tested 121 participants who completed measures of absorption and trait dissociation and the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility and then viewed the two films after either an hypnotic induction or a non-hypnotic task (i.e., anagrams). Experiential involvement varied as a function of hypnotic suggestibility and film clip. Highly suggestible participants reported more state depersonalization than less suggestible participants, and depersonalization was associated with negative affect; however, we observed no significant correlation between hypnotic suggestibility and trait dissociation. Although hypnosis had no effect on memory commission or omission errors, contrary to the hypothesis that hypnosis facilitates absorption in emotionally engaging tasks, the emotional film was associated with more commission and omission errors compared with the non-emotional film.

Worry, rumination, and hypnosis

When it comes to higher human intelligence, there is curse with which we all live. Our highly developed frontal lobe allows us to anticipate the future and simulate a wide range of potential events. On one hand, this allows us to participate in strategic planning and goal setting as we create our lives. On a more mundane level, these capabilities allow us to do simple task such as walking and driving. On the other hand, when these abilities get out of control they can turn our life into a living hell. Our instinctual drive for self-preservation leads us to identify and seek to avoid any...

What is self-esteem?

A person’s overall valuation of their self-worth is their self-esteem. It can also be called self-worth, self respect, self integrity, or self regard. It can also be discussed in terms of levels. These range from poor self-esteem to equally unhealthy problems with narcissism. Psychologists, coaches, teachers, and others may evaluate the relative level of someone's self-esteem when establishing whether change may be required. There are two other areas that I believe directly impact on a person's self-esteem. These are the related concepts of self perception of competence and stress. The...

The meaning of empathy

Our ability to sense other people's feelings is the key to survival with any civilized society. It may also be directly related to our ability to learn languages and customs. The discovery of mirror neurons in the 1990s showed that are empathetic nature is very much a part of our neurophysiology. Additionally, other neuroscientists have frequently discussed the fact that properly nurtured and socialized infants and children have also developed specific parts of the brain, which are associated with the ability to show empathy. People without these abilities are often called sociopaths or...
