The Capacity for Status (Cs), Achievement via Independence (Ai), and Achievement via Conformity (Ac) scales on the California Psychological Inventory (CPI) were used to predict treatment response to self-hypnosis for migraine headaches. These scales measure perseverance and motivation, and it was predicted that high scorers would respond better to treatment. Twenty migraine patients were recruited from the Neurology and Pain Clinics at a Midwest veterans' hospital. They were categorized into High and Low groups using a median split on their CPI scores. Participants kept a baseline headache diary for 4 weeks. They were then trained in self-hypnosis and given a tape for home use. Participants were encouraged to practice the technique twice a day for 20 minutes and to continue keeping headache diaries for an additional 4 weeks.Baseline analysis indicated low scorers took more headache medications than high scorers ( p

Do you suffer from a chronic pain disorder? Do you have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or another condition that leaves you in constant pain? Are you one of the millions of people that have tried everything to lose weight but haven’t been able to lose weight and keep it off? Is one of your New Year’s Resolutions to finally quit smoking? There is one treatment that can help with all of these conditions and more. Hypnosis. The medical community used to laugh off hypnosis as a parlor trick that magicians did to amuse children at birthday parties or entertain people in night clubs by making other people say stupid things or act in funny ways. And Hypnosis can do that, but it can also significantly improve your healthy. Even though Hypnosis is not a very common medical treatment in the West it’s been used in various forms of Eastern and primitive medicine for centuries. As the West rediscovers many ancient healing practices like homeopathy and herbal medicine Western medical doctors and alternative therapy practitioners are rediscovering the benefits of using hypnosis to treat patients that don’t respond well, or don’t respond at all, to traditional Western medicine. Studies have found that hypnosis can have a positive impact on many different medical conditions including those associated with chronic pain and fatigue. Psychologists have used hypnosis for a long time as part of psychological evaluation and treatment of patients. Some psychologists think that hypnosis is a form of dissociation, but that is a topic of great debate within the psychological community. Anecdotal evidence proves that hypnosis can be a great help when treating the psychological aspect of physical problems like addictions or dealing with the emotional and psychological aspects of diseases like Fibromyalgia. Because disorders like additions or Fibromyalgia have both psychological and physical components patients that suffer from these disorders must treat both the physical and psychology causes for the disorder. Hypnosis is usually a safe and effective way to treat both parts of the problem at the same time. Even though the medical and psychological communities are split on the effectiveness of hypnosis as a medical treatment there are millions of people that it has helped who will tell you that it works.

The author's message is that we are empowered by choice and never limited by fate. The book is loaded with a wealth of true stories from elite athletes, age regression, past lives, children's problems, imagery and remote viewing, working with archetypes, stress reduction and many spiritual and psychic growth exercises. Combining 30 years of experience with self-hypnosis, psychodynamic psychotherapy, guided imagery, and meditation - this book is fast becoming a classic in the field of mind control and spiritual growth. It includes chapters for elite sports, martial arts, guided imagery for your child's nightmares, anxiety and weight loss scripts, how to heal your inner child of trauma, astral travel and how to develop your kundalini - to name just a few. Reviews "An incredible book, utterly riveting, absolutely magical!” SP "I really liked this book and thought it was a good read. If you are someone that meditates I'm sure you will also find it interesting. It's not that long and not very expensive so for me it's like, why not? I'm a big fan of self hypnosis as I used it to achieve a beautiful birth several years ago. Since then I have been kind of doing my own thing meditating but this book really helped me expand my mental exercises. It essentially gives a ton of different ways to explore your own psyche. I find it to be a very helpful guide to self hypnosis. The chapter on scary dreams tremendously helped me navigate this problem with my 5 year old daughter. Now each night before bed she gets so excited to go to her personal Fanstasyland, where we often deal with the things that are troubling her in a safe and self-empowered way. For this reason alone it was worth it to me.Also I'm a lifelong student of astrology and I loved his combination of these two worlds, astrological archetypes and deep meditation. Good stuff." AT "This a fun book to read. Noel's writing style is informative and flows nicely. I have the Kindle version. Buy it you'll like it!!" MK "Digs deep into the issues of life, be it struggles or challenges. noel not only explains the roots of inner dragons, but also describes how to identify them. Living with Dragons is an insightful and practical look at the negative thoughts and emotions that can impede our lives on a daily basis. This book will not only help you shed light on things you may have tried to hide, but it will also guide you towards practical steps to slay your Dragons. No matter what negativity fills your inner World, Living with Dragons will help you move towards it, face it head on, and squash it." C "This work is a vital and necessary tool for anyone wishing to understand and confront their 'inner demons'...or 'dragons' as Noel so aptly names them. His prodigious experience as a clinical psychologist is clearly apparent here, yet it is not couched in confusing medical terminology but instead with mythologies we all know, and instructions on 'how to' that are so very easy to read and to understand. In fact he makes it hard not to want to attempt this journey inward, and to meet those inner dragons that we all have somewhere within. Herein he gives invaluable directions on ways in which to make this inward journey via trance and self-hypnosis methods, both safely and productively. The examples he gives are not only fascinating but intensely engaging in every way. This work is inspiring, exciting and riveting, and I strongly recommend it." S

Since 1979, when the second edition of Erika Fromm and Ronald E. Shor's classic Hypnosis was published, the field of experimental hypnosis has expanded enormously. Filling the need for a definitive reference that incorporates the plethora of ideas and methodologies that have emerged over the last 13 years, this completely new volume continues in the Fromm-Shor tradition by presenting an authoritative survey of contemporary hypnosis research, methodology, and theory. To provide the reader with an even-handed, complete treatment of all currently prominent research areas and theories in one book, chapter authors were selected to represent the entire range of the field. Divided into three parts, the book first reviews both the theoretical perspectives and history of hypnosis research. Chapters in Part II cover empirically based theories with discussion of dissociation, psychopathology and psychological regression, as well as explication of a social-psychological approach and an ego-psychological theory. Surveying the broad areas of hypnosis research, Part III presents chapters on an array of topics including research design and considerations, phenomenology, neuropsychophysiology, and methodology in psychological research. Situational and personality correlates of hypnotic responsiveness and the effects of hypnotic procedures on memory are examined, and the relationship between hypnosis and creativity is discussed. Other subjects covered are the experiential method, self-hypnosis and personality, clinical research, and the measurement of hypnotic ability. In addition, the editors have gathered the book's over 1,450 references into one large bibliographic section, making this an ideal resource that will be used often and easily. Veteran researchers and theoreticians will find the chapters on theoretical paradigms and programmatic research in this scholarly resource both informative and challenging. Students and beginning researchers will find CONTEMPORARY HYPNOSIS RESEARCH to be the perfect hands-on tool, providing them with conceptual underpinnings, methodological perspectives, and scholarly documentation. Psychologists, social workers, physicians, and other clinicians who wish to gain better empirical and theoretical understanding of the field will find it an excellent reference.

Imagine Yourself Well: Better Health through Self-Hypnosis is a remarkable view of hypnotherapy as a scientifically recognized treatment art. Based upon their extensive practice and clinical research in therapeutic hypnotic techniques, the authors have constructed an effective handbook articulating the therapeutic use of hypnosis by depicting word-for-word what transpires during a session. The fascinating series of carefully worded transcripts of hypnotic exercises will enable the reader to correct specific self-destructive habits (e.g., overeating and smoking), common psychological problems (insomnia and various phobias), chronic physical conditions (arthritis, back pain, high blood pressure, and migraine headaches), and performance anxieties (athletics and public speaking). The theory underlying clinical practice, including the key point that all hypnosis involves self-hypnosis, is explained in lay terms, and each exercise is grounded in sound cognitive, behavioral, or psychodynamic principles.
