我深刻地领悟到,身心健康不是一项仅限于某个人、某个专业领域或仅仅与病患相关的议题。它实际上是众人的事业。一个人的觉醒,足以催生家庭和社会的改变。回溯十几年前的自己,我深知在面对身心健康问题时所承受的孤独和无助。Mental Health Awareness, Advocacy & Support - MHAAS 心理健康倡导幕后的推手和此次新书推广活动的作者,功不可没。她的书,真的有满满的真诚、故事和知识。推荐大家联系她购买,自己阅读或送给正在情绪低落状况的友人阅读。

因此,尽管这次活动虽然是协办的,但我对它寄予了很大的期待。看到精神科医生黄章元博士教授和名DJ Shuleen 丘淑霖同心协力支持此次活动,真是让人感到振奋。看到他们在百忙之中出席,我的内心充满了感动,这让我深刻地认识到,我们并不孤独,相信我们共同追求同一个目标。一个更有爱的世界❤️

How can hypnotherapy heal trauma?

Recently, I read the sharing from APA Division 30 about how hypnotherapy improves the symptoms of trauma. It has truly enlightened me about something I have believed in and practiced for years. I hope to share this article with you all too.

APA Division 30 is formally known as the American Psychological Association's Division of Psychological Hypnosis. It is one of the divisions within the American Psychological Association (APA), which is the largest professional organization of psychologists in the United States. Division 30 is specifically focused on the study and promotion of hypnosis and its application within the field of psychology.

Hypnotherapy induces a state of deep relaxation, which may be useful for healing from trauma.

Trauma is a universal human experience. A traumatic event may involve anything from interpersonal abuse to a natural disaster to the sudden death of a loved one.

When people struggle to process traumatic events or experiences, it can lead to certain mental health conditions or symptoms, such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, flashbacks, and more.

Hypnosis, also called hypnotherapy, is a state of deep relaxation and focused concentration. It’s a type of mind-body treatment for trauma.

A trained and certified hypnotist or hypnotherapist guides you into this deep state of focus and relaxation with verbal cues, repetition, and imagery.

When you’re under hypnosis, this intense level of concentration and focus may allow you to ignore ordinary distractions and be more open to guided suggestions to make changes to improve your health.”

Through the help of a hypnotherapist, you may be able to heal certain symptoms related to trauma you’ve experienced.

Certain studies have shown hypnotherapy to be helpful in the treatment of trauma symptoms, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), in some instances.

meta-analysis of six studies on hypnotherapy found that hypnotherapy significantly reduced participants’ PTSD symptoms of intrusion and avoidance. Regardless of the nature of the trauma, participants who received hypnotherapy experienced a reduction in their symptoms.

However, not all studies used the same type of hypnotherapy, which compromised the findings.

Another study found that hypnotherapy can help reduce insomnia in those with combat-related PTSD. In fact, the study found that hypnotherapy, as an additive treatment, decreased intrusive and avoidance symptoms of PTSD and improved sleep.

Researchers have also found that hypnotherapy may be able to reduce depression symptoms. A study comparing the effectiveness of cognitive hypnotherapy, which is hypnosis combined with cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), versus CBT alone, found that cognitive hypnotherapy was more effective in reducing depressionanxiety, and hopelessness.
