L?impact de l?hypnose conversationnelle sur l?anxiété pré et post opératoire des patientes en chirurgie gynécologique versus pratique courante : étude comparative.

Rech Soins Infirm 2019 Jan;135(4):83-90

Hysterectomies are often linked to benign pathologies, but they are nevertheless the cause of anxiety and lead to significant physiological and psychological changes for these women. The uterus, as a symbol of femininity for women, has a unique meaning in relation to its reproductive function and its role in sexuality. Given this fact, does conversational hypnosis-used when a patient arrives at the hospital-have an impact on the pre- and postoperative anxiety of patients hospitalized for gynecological surgery in the form of a hysterectomy? To answer this question, a pilot study of comparative monocentric feasibility was performed with two parallel groups of 10 patients in 2014. Read More

Common and specific loci of Stroop effects in vocal and manual tasks, revealed by event-related brain potentials and posthypnotic suggestions.

J Exp Psychol Gen 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Institut fur Psychologie.

In the Stroop task color words are shown in various print colors. When print colors are named or classified with button presses, interference occurs if word meaning is color-incongruent and facilitation if it is congruent. Although the Stroop effects in vocal and manual task versions are similar, it is unclear whether the underlying mechanisms are equivalent. Read More

THE NEUROPHENOMENOLOGY OF OUT-OF-BODY EXPERIENCES INDUCED BY HYPNOTIC SUGGESTIONS.

Int J Clin Exp Hypn 2019 Jan-Mar;67(1):39-68

b University of Padua , Italy.

Inducing out-of-body experiences in hypnosis (H-OBEs) offers an almost unique opportunity to investigate them under controlled conditions. OBEs were induced as an imaginative task in a resting condition (I-OBE) or in hypnosis (H-OBE) in a group of 15 high hypnotizable subjects. A 32-channel EEG was recorded, and the spectral power and imaginary coherence of each frequency band and each couple of electrodes were calculated. Read More

THE ROLES OF RESPONSE EXPECTANCIES, BASELINE EXPERIENCES, AND HYPNOTIZABILITY IN SPONTANEOUS HYPNOTIC EXPERIENCES.

Int J Clin Exp Hypn 2019 Jan-Mar;67(1):1-27

b Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths , University of London , London , UK.

This study evaluated factors underlying individual differences in spontaneous (unsuggested) experiences during hypnosis. Participants varying in hypnotizability (low, medium, and high) completed a questionnaire about various dimensions of consciousness they would expect to experience at the "deepest level of hypnosis" (expectancy), an eyes-closed resting condition (baseline), and their actual experiences during "neutral hypnosis" (hypnosis). Responses during hypnosis were characterized by higher scores in dimensions related to alterations in conscious experience, affect, and imagery, and lower scores in rationality and agency. Read More

CAN SUBJECTIVE RATINGS OF ABSORPTION, DISSOCIATION, AND TIME PERCEPTION DURING "NEUTRAL HYPNOSIS" PREDICT HYPNOTIZABILITY?: An exploratory study.

Int J Clin Exp Hypn 2019 Jan-Mar;67(1):28-38

a University Hospital of Liege and University of Liege , Belgium.

This study explored absorption, dissociation, and time perception on visual analogue scales (VAS) after a neutral hypnosis session to predict hypnotizability. Sixty-two subjects completed the Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale, Form C (SHSS:C) and, during a neutral hypnosis session, VAS ratings of absorption, dissociation, and time perception. The findings indicated that 44% of subjects scored high, 35% medium, and 21% low on hypnotizability, as determined by scores on the SHSS:C. Read More

Clinical Hypnosis and Music In Breast Biopsy:A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Am J Clin Hypn 2019 Jan;61(3):244-257

b Universidad Santo Tomás.

A randomized clinical study was conducted to evaluate the effects on anxiety, depression, stress and optimism levels of an audio-recorded clinical hypnosis intervention and a music session and compare them with a control group in women scheduled for breast biopsy. We analyzed the data of 170 patients with an average age of 47 years, who were randomly assigned to each of the groups. The psychosocial variables were measured in three moments: baseline, which corresponds to the period before the intervention with hypnosis, music or waiting in the room before biopsy; a second measurement after the interventions and a third measurement after the breast biopsy procedure was finished.

The moral power of suggestion: A history of suggestion in Japan, 1900-1930.

Authors:
Yu-Chuan Wu

J Hist Behav Sci 2019 Jan 3;55(1):21-39. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Institute of History and Philology, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan.

In Japan, as in the west, suggestion theory was the predominant theory of hypnosis, and suggestive therapy was one of the most important, if not the most important, form of psychotherapy in the early 20th century. While the use of suggestion was met with objections on both scientific and moral grounds in the west, it was seen in a more positive light and has had a significant influence on the development of psychotherapy in Japan. With regard to the contexts of suggestion, suggestive power, suggestibility, and the effects of suggestion, this study will examine the distinctive conceptions and practices of suggestion developed by analogy with existing ideas about interpersonal influence, particularly with the concept of kanka (assimilative transformation) in Japan.

Can hypnosis displace the threshold for visual consciousness?

Neurosci Conscious 2018 20;2018(1):niy009. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Département d'Études Cognitives (École Normale Supérieure - PSL Research University), Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique (ENS, EHESS, CNRS), Paris, France.

To test the specific effects of hypnosis on the attentional components of visual awareness, we developed a posthypnotic suggestion for peripheral visual inattention inspired on the "tunnel vision" symptom of the Balint Syndrome. We constructed a dual-target visibility and discrimination paradigm, in which single-digit numerical targets were placed both on the hypnotically affected peripheral space and on the remaining undisturbed central area. Results were 3-fold: (i) when compared to participants of Low hypnotic susceptibility (Lows), highly susceptible participants (Highs) presented decreased subjective visibility; (ii) Highs did not show dual-task interference from peripheral targets (an effect of unconscious processing) during hypnotic suggestion to not attend them, but Lows did; (iii) nevertheless, when asked to execute a discrimination task over these same targets, Highs performed with the same accuracy as Lows.

Hypnotherapy for insomnia: A randomized controlled trial comparing generic and disease-specific suggestions.

Complement Ther Med 2018 Dec 9;41:231-239. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

School of Nursing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

Study Objectives: Hypnotherapy is commonly used for treating insomnia, but a definite conclusion regarding its safety and effectiveness is unavailable due to a lack of adverse event monitoring and comparison between generic and disease-specific hypnotic suggestions in previous studies.

Design: Randomized controlled, participant-blind, parallel-group with subject recruitment after trial registry.

Interventions: Sixty participants were randomized to receive 4-week once-weekly 1-hour hypnotherapy with disease-specific suggestions (using counter-hyperarousal hypnotic exercise and screen visualization technique targeted at insomnia-related anxieties) or generic suggestions (using thought distraction technique and suggestions for self-confidence and self-care enhancement).

Randomized controlled trial of an 8-week intervention combining self-care and hypnosis for post-treatment cancer patients: study protocol.

BMC Cancer 2018 Nov 15;18(1):1113. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Public Health Department and Sensation and Perception Research Group, GIGA-Consciousness, University of Liège, Liège, Belgium.

Background: Cancer has a lot of consequences on patients' quality of life (such as cancer-related fatigue (CRF), sleep difficulties and emotional distress) and on patients' partners and their relationship, such as distress and communication difficulties. These consequences are undertreated, and interventions based on hypnosis often focus on breast cancer patients only. This paper describes the study protocol of a longitudinal randomized controlled trial aiming to assess the efficacy of an 8-week intervention combining hypnosis and self-care to improve cancer patients' CRF, sleep and emotional distress and to indirectly improve their partners' distress.

Closed-loop administration of analgesic drugs based on heart rate variability analysis.

Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc 2018 Jul;2018:506-509

General anesthesia is based on the use of hypnotic, muscle relaxant and analgesic drugs in order to render the patient unresponsive to the surgical procedure. The difficulty for anesthesiologists is then to determinate the minimum efficient dose to avoid any risk of under or over dosing. For several years, monitoring systems were developed in order to measure depth of hypnosis, myorelaxation and analgesia. Read More

The Role of Hypnosis in Cancer Care.

Curr Oncol Rep 2018 Nov 13;20(12):93. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Oncology, Cumming School of Medicine, Psychosocial Resources, University of Calgary, 2202 2nd St SW, Calgary, AB, T2S 3C1, Canada.

Purpose Of Review: This paper reviews the current evidence-base for the use of hypnosis as an adjunct treatment for common cancer-related symptoms and side effects, including those experienced during treatment, as well as long-term and late effects. First, a general description and history of medical hypnosis in cancer care is provided, followed by a review of the latest evidence across a range of common symptoms.

Recent Findings: The evidence suggests that hypnosis may help treat symptoms of nausea and vomiting in breast cancer patients, manage pain in a variety of contexts, and also reduce levels of anxiety and overall distress around surgical and medical procedures, both in children and adults. Read More

Closed loop administration of propofol based on a Smith predictor: a randomized controlled trial.

Minerva Anestesiol 2018 Oct 30. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Department of Computer Science and System Engineering, Universidad de La Laguna (ULL), La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain.

Background: Delay in the propofol pharmacodynamics effect is commonly observed in total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA). To face the delay in the hypnosis control, we have proposed a Proportional-Integral (PI) controller with a Smith predictor (PI+Smith). We have evaluated the feasibility of this closed-loop control for propofol administration and compared the performance with manual administration guided by the Bispectral Index (BIS). Read More

Pediatric Electroconvulsive Therapy: An Anesthesiologist's Perspective.

Child Adolesc Psychiatr Clin N Am 2019 Jan 11;28(1):21-32. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children, 1600 Rockland Road, Wilmington, DE 19803, USA.

Proper planning and communication between psychiatry and anesthesiology teams is vital to conferring the greatest therapeutic benefit to children presenting for electroconvulsive therapy while minimizing risk. Anesthesia for the child undergoing electroconvulsive therapy should ideally provide deep hypnosis, ensure muscle relaxation to reduce injury, have minimal effect on seizure dynamics, and allow for rapid recovery to baseline neurologic and cardiopulmonary status. Unique factors for pediatric electroconvulsive therapy include the potential need for preoperative anxiolytic and inhalational induction of anesthesia, which must be weighed against the detrimental effects of anesthetic agents on the evoked seizure quality required for a successful treatment.

Vittorio Benussi, hypnosuggestive methods, and emotional functional autonomy.

Authors:
Mauro Antonelli

Hist Psychol 2019 Feb 25;22(1):40-62. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Psychology.

This article reconstructs Vittorio Benussi's (1878-1927) research on autonomia funzionale emotiva [emotional functional autonomy], carried out in Padua between 1920 and 1927. Its aim is to demonstrate that Benussi believed-against the intellectualist mainstream of the psychology of his time and even against the Brentanian-Meinongian tradition in which he was educated-in the fundamental independence of emotions from the cognitive functions that usually accompany them. To study this autonomy, Benussi used hypnosis as an experimental tool designed to disassemble the phenomena of mental life from their global functional unity. Read More
