My Hooponopono Certification Review

Highly Recommended

I usually find books written on this category hard to understand and full of jargon. But the writer was capable of presenting advanced techniques in an extremely easy to understand language.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

Thought Elevators

A new research on success and its manifestation conducted by Stanford University answers questions about Tibetan Monks and the secret to their long-lasting happiness, not to mention eternal success. Their brains were studied and it was found that they used some kind of a technique called the Brain Elevation Technique. It is merely a meditation that used to take them to a state known as Theta State of mind. And that is when the universe starts bestowing good will upon you. It is much like hypnosis, whereby your subconscious brain is targeted and fed with new ideas. Like many people who reshape a certain field, Eric Taller reshaped what we know about the Theta State and the path to it. He summarized the process in 4 steps and created a 3-minute video that prepared him for the process. After that, he created 33-minute audio with the help of a sound engineer. That audio contained music of the frequencies 4 Hz and 7 Hz and audio motivational speeches. In Thought Elevator's package you get the video and audio and these bonuses, Bonus 1: Success While You Sleep, bonus 2: How to Plant a Money Tree? Bonus 3: Recognizing Your Soulmate, bonus 4: I Love Myself, bonus 5: Manifesting Health for Boomers. Continue reading...

Interventions 141 Prevention

In 1996 Yung and McGorry defined the so-called schizophrenia prodrome , characterised by sleep disturbance, depressed mood, social withdrawal, suspiciousness, perplexity, change in sense of self or others, poor appetite, raising thoughts, impulsivity or disinhibition, memory problems, anxiety, anger, irritability, deterioration of functioning, poor concentration, loss of motivation, fatigue perceptual changes, somatic complaints, thought blocking, odd behaviour and elevated mood. Although this is a very unspe-cific list of symptoms, with some of these being quite common in adolescents in puberty, the American Psychiatric Association defined prodromal schizophrenia in DSM III, the diagnostic and statistical manual for the classification of psychiatric diseases in the United States. Here we find in the definition such unspecific behaviour as social isolation and withdrawal, impairment in role functioning, peculiar behaviour, impairment of personal hygiene, blunted or inappropriate...

The informationprocessing approach

The information-processing approach emerged with the advent of computers, and advances were often closely linked with the developments in computing technology. Researchers cast human cognitive activities in terms of computer operations, breaking memory down into encoding, storage, and retrieval components. Shifting attention from the outwardly observable, which had been the prime focus of behaviorism, the information-processing approach focused on inner dimensions of human behavior. As a general cognitive-psychology model, the information-processing approach incorporated aspects of Gestalt psychology, as well as Bartlett's ideas. Compared with the earlier period of verbal learning, the information-processing approach has undoubtedly been more appealing to memory research, and indeed, a number of models concerned with the inner activities of the human mind have developed within this framework. However, this approach is not without its problems, principle among which are the...

Early Development Of Psychology

Although this system soon received much criticism, it did point out the possible futility of trying to describe unobservable activities of the subject and helped psychology confront the ideas of stimulus control and determinism of behavior. Direct concern with stimuli and the consequent responses became an important part of several psychological positions, although the recent growth of cognitive psychology has brought a greater focus on and understanding of how people think about, know, and understand their worlds.

Practice What is Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Whereas supportive therapy maintains or strengthens existing defences and level of functioning, exploratory therapy fosters an increase in self-understanding through the patient's expression of his conflicts and the defences used and the therapist's interpretation of what is revealed. The therapist's interventions tend to address the problematic reactions of the patient towards the therapist and significant others.22 Negative feelings towards the therapist are actively explored from the start whereas in supportive therapy they are not actively worked with unless they become a significant source of resistance.

Cognitively Restructuring The Experience Of Depression

Alladin's (1994) Cognitive Dissociative Model utilizes the hypnotic process to facilitate cognitive restructuring. He describes a theoretical model linking hypnosis with depression and reports preliminary data finding no difference in outcome between this treatment methodology and Beck et al.'s (1979, 1985) cognitive therapy approach . However, subjects in the cognitive hypnotherapy group showed more rapid improvement, greater reduction in anxiety scores, and a significant increase in self-confidence. Hypnosis has also been used to facilitate imagery techniques, from either a cognitive-behavioural or a psychodynamic theoretical framework. Fromm (1976) successfully used a metaphor of nature and new growth in her therapy with a woman following the deaths of her parents.

Age Changes in WM One or Several Factors

A number of hypotheses were nevertheless formulated with respect to processes responsible for change in WM capacity with age. Here again, the similarity between the cognitive-development and the cognitive-aging fields is striking. Two processes most often mentioned are activation and inhibition. These two processes are considered as components of selective attention2 in adult cognitive psychology. Processing speed (which is rather vaguely defined in terms of response times in relatively simple cognitive tasks) is also a very highly rated candidate. It can be considered to be an empirical operationalization of the construct of activation, all the more so as activation cannot be directly apprehended except in theoretical task analyses or in connectionist modeling. More rapid processing implies that a larger quantity of information can be processed or activated in a given period of time, which yields an apparently larger processing capacity. Reciprocally, a larger capacity probably...

Introduction To Statistical Tests Of Significance

In criminal court, the accused is presumed innocent'' until proved guilty beyond all reasonable doubt.'' This framework of presumed innocence has nothing whatsoever to do with anyone's personal belief as to the innocence or guilt of the defendant. Sometimes everybody, including the jury, the judge, and even the defendant's attorney, think the defendant is guilty. The rules and procedures of the criminal court must be followed, however. There may be a mistrial, or a hung jury, or the arresting officer forgot to read the defendant his or her rights. Any number of things can happen to save the guilty from a conviction. On the other hand, an innocent defendant is sometimes convicted by overwhelming circumstantial evidence. Criminal courts occasionally make mistakes, sometimes releasing the guilty and sometimes convicting the innocent. Statistical tests are like that. Sometimes, statistical significance is attained when nothing is going on, and sometimes, no statistical...

Treatment Of Sexual Dysfunctionan Integrated Approach

Kaplan (1974, 1979) later extended the Masters & Johnson (1966, 1970) approach into a more comprehensive eclectic brief psychotherapy model. She proposed a model of brief therapy for sexual dysfunction starting from a psychotherapy base, but incorporating the cognitive-behavioral strategies available

Why Is Hypnosis Useful In The Treatment Of Sexual Dysfunction

Hypnosis, when added to traditional approaches to the treatment of sexual dysfunction in both males and females, facilitates treatment and extends treatment options. Hammond (1990) noted the advantages in using hypnosis as an adjunct to traditional forms of sexual dysfunction, particularly in the way hypnotically-based techniques may assist in working with the single individual if the patient's partner is unwilling, unavailable or non-existent. Hypnosis provides direct and indirect ways of effecting changes in negative thought processes at both the superficial and deeper schematic level. As Araoz (1982) noted, it is often the negative thinking of patients with sexual disorders that perpetuates difficulties. The involvement of thought, image and symbolism in sexual interest, arousal and behavior cannot be overemphasized. Changing the information, associations, symbols and images that contribute to dysfunction is a primary goal of therapy. Hypnosis provides a powerful means of...

Models For Neural Matched Filters In Vision

A central question in cognitive psychology is how do animals recognize visual objects that they have learned That is, how do they recall the name and the learned properties of an image on the retina The image might be a shape, a letter of the alphabet, a face, an automobile, etc. Image properties and features such as relative size, shape, color, and contrast all must figure in the identification recognition process. Clearly, information stored in the CNS is compared with the incoming information to arrive at a match or probable match. This section examines a simple, highly-speculative model for object recognition, i.e., the neural matched filter. Before examining the application of a matched filter model to the recognition of elementary visual objects, it is important to note that application of the matched filter concept, as used in communications, requires the assumption of a linear system. However, an animal's CNS is in general quite nonlinear, although piecewise linearity might be...

Altered States Of Consciousness External Influences

Amphetamines, such as Benzedrine or Dexedrine, are popularly known as speed. The use of amphetamines in relatively small amounts usually produces increased alertness, a sense of energy, and positive emotional feelings. When used excessively or for a prolonged periods, amphetamines can produce feelings of persecution, negative emotions, and even convulsions or death.

Definition and Relevance of Human Factors Engineering

The human factors engineering field is several decades old and has been applied in various organizations and domains when they face design, personnel, and policy issues such as those surrounding MET (6). Briefly, human factors engineering is the discipline that studies human capabilities and limitations and applies that information to safe, effective, and comfortable system design (7,8). It includes the design of tools, machines, and systems that take into account human capabilities, limitations, and characteristics. Ergonomics, usability engineering, and user-centered design are considered synonymous or closely related to human factors engineering, which is based on design-related aspects of several biomedical disciplines. From a systems perspective, a person is receiving input from a clinical assessment machine, processing that input, and creating an output that goes to the health care machine. Anthropometrics and biomechanics cover most of the physical aspects of input and output....

The Negative Transference

A positive transference is not uncommon in the early stages of therapy as the patient is mobilised by his wish to get better and usually hopes that we will be of help to him. Nevertheless, as with any relationship, the therapeutic one will also need to stand the test of the patient's hostility or his mistrust. These feelings are not always expressed at the outset. Some patients may find it very threatening to own such feelings in themselves and or to express them. Consequently, they may be displaced onto other relationships in the patient's life so as to protect the therapeutic relationship. The patient will, for example, report arguments or conflicts with a partner or boss safely keeping their anger ''out there'' rather than in the relationship with us. Most of the time, negative feelings are more readily voiced when the patient trusts that we can tolerate their expression without retaliating or trying to minimise their significance. The experience of such feelings in the therapeutic...

The Challenges Of Working In The Transference

Besides a wish to avoid drawing the patient's negative feelings towards ourselves, there are other commonly voiced concerns about working in the transference. Let us look at some of them By focusing on the patient's negative feelings towards the therapist (i.e. the negative transference), this will somehow preclude a positive experience that will disconfirm the patient's pathogenic assumptions in relationships. Taking up the negative transference is challenging for both patient and therapist. Whether it is helpful to interpret the negative transference early on in the therapy is a moot point. In the absence of a solid enough therapeutic alliance, the exploration of negative feelings towards the therapist may be experienced as too threatening by the patient who may fear the therapist's retaliation for the expression of his hostile feelings. Timing is thus of the essence. A well-timed interpretation of the negative transference can be experienced as very helpful by the patient - the...

Psychoanalytic Perspectives On Memory

Context, mood, beliefs and attitudes, as it is by past events (Brenneis, 1999). Memories are not direct replicas of the facts per se. On the contrary, memory undergoes a complex process of reconstruction during retrieval. This means that memory of some autobiographical events may be reconstructed in ways that differ from the original event or may never be recalled at all. The view that memory is continually being constructed rather than retrieved from storage in original pristine form is consistent with current thinking in cognitive psychology and neurobiology. However, it would be mistaken to infer from this that early memories are mostly inaccurate research suggests that there is in fact substantial accuracy in early memories (Brewin et al., 1993) even though the more fine-grained details of an experience, even if vividly recalled and reported by the patient, are unlikely to be entirely accurate.

The Evidence For Unconscious Processing

Since Freud, the evidence for unconscious mentation has steadily accumulated. Studying unconscious processes has never been as exciting or promising as it is today because of a gradual rapprochement between psychoanalysis and neuroscience. Factors operating outside of conscious awareness are now recognised in many cognitive psychological theories. Unconscious activities are understood to constitute far more of mentation than consciousness could ever hope to explain. Findings from cognitive psychology and neuroscience have repeatedly demonstrated that a significant proportion of our behaviour and emotional reactions is controlled by autonomous, unconscious structures, bypassing consciousness altogether (Damasio, 1999 Pally, 2000). Psychoanalysis and cognitive psychology nowadays also converge on the recognition that meaning systems include both conscious and unconscious aspects of experience.

What Makes the Difference

In a book on psychoanalytic therapy written by a psychoanalytic therapist, it would be reasonable to suspect a degree of bias towards the approach. However, the therapeutic value of psychoanalytic interventions is not just a matter of personal bias. On the contrary, process research, which addresses not just the interventions used but those associated with change, has exposed some interesting results as it points to the helpfulness of what have been traditionally regarded as ''psychoanalytic interventions''. Jones and Pulos (1993), for example, looked at the process in thirty brief psychodynamic sessions and thirty-two sessions of CBT. They found that better outcome in CBT was not predicted by cognitive techniques but was associated with psychodynamic exploratory interventions (e.g. ''evocation of affect'', ''bringing troublesome feelings into awareness'' and ''integrating difficulties with past experience''). Wiser & Goldfried (1996) found that in sessions identified as important for...

Factors promoting psychological adaptation to rheumatic disease

Support from naturally occurring social ties enables family members to cope as well. Spouses who receive support outside the marital relationship are able to be more supportive to a sick partner. Outside support may alleviate some of the burden of providing care or provide a safe outlet for expressing negative feelings.

Middle Phase Altering Cognitions

Karen, a 42-year-old unmarried secretary, entered therapy for a dramatic weight problem. Karen started therapy at 300 pounds and lost only 20 pounds after a year and a half of intensive psychotherapy. Her weight problem had originated in early childhood and in the past she had tried all kinds of diet. Each time when starting eating normally again, she put on weight immediately Because of her severe weight problem, she locked herself up in her apartment and only left her flat to go to work. She had extreme feelings of inferiority. Firstly, self-hypnosis was taught by means of an audiotape. We discovered that Karen had moderate to good hypnotic capacities. Since we had learnt from her weight history that losing weight would be very difficult, we decided to introduce hypnosis to alter her negative feelings and feelings of inferiority about herself. We invited Karen to imagine herself, during hypnosis, in a world where being overweight was highly valued Further exploration during hypnosis...

Phenomenon Centered Research

Account of the data is not as easy to obtain as it is when all experiments are derived from a single theory. At its current level of understanding, cognitive psychology needs both robust findings and good theories (see Newell, 1973). We cannot obtain a useful or complete description of cognition if we limit ourselves to a collection of phenomena or to a collection of theories, each of which accounts for a limited set of experimental procedures. Both the phenomenon-centered approach and the theory-driven approach must be expanded and integrated. One advantage of the bump is that it is a robust phenomenon that stretches the limits of current theories and thus invites a wide range of theoretical speculation.

Prospective and Retrospective Memory in Adulthood

Prospective memory (ProM) is a distinctive aspect of memory that forms the logical, natural complement of retrospective memory (RetM). ProM is required for carrying out planned activities, such as removing the pot before it boils over, getting groceries en route from work to home, and taking medication nightly at bedtime. However, despite the fact that it is intimately involved in many everyday activities and the fact that its breakdown seems as debilitating as impairments in RetM, ProM has received little attention by mainstream memory researchers, and the topic is frequently not even mentioned in introductory cognitive-psychology texts. We believe that this neglect of ProM has several causes, prominent among them are the absence in the literature of clear definitions of memory's prospective function and the lack of convincing empirical support for the claim that ProM is a distinct form of memory.


Three types of psychotherapy have been applied to PTSD psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), and hypnotic-restructuring. In each of these approaches, telling and retelling the story of the trauma is an essential element, albeit with different methods and goals clarification of unconscious themes and transference distortions in psychodynamic treatment, correction of cognitive distortions in CBT, and abreaction and the restructuring of traumatic memories with the help of hypnosis.


Although it is a stretch to go from molecules to cognitive psychology, it is entertaining to think of sins for which protein turnover may be the underlying culprit. The easiest example is transience. Transience is simply the diminution of a particular memory over time. Your memory for recent events is more robust and detailed for recent events than for those from farther in your past. Memory has a half-life because the molecules that store it have a half-life. In the case of those memories stored using a mnemogenic, self-perpetuating reaction, the memory half-life is basically determined by the error rate of the underlying mnemogenic reaction as it replicates itself.

Suicide Risk

Given our understanding that hopelessness is the best predictor of suicide risk, the decision for the clinician becomes whether to avoid the use of hypnosis with patients high on this variable, or to utilize hypnosis as a tool for the modification of hopelessness. The cognitive-behavioural literature provides some data relevant to the field of hypnosis. For example, a study by Rush, Beck, Kovacs et al. (1982), showed that depressed patients treated with cognitive therapy showed a more rapid reduction in hopelessness scores than a comparison group of depressed patients treated with an antidepressant drug.

Dabneym Ewin

Seriously burned patients run the gamut of negative emotions. (Ewin, l978). Both the burn and its treatments are excruciatingly painful, and fear of the next treatment sets in early. The accident is usually caused by carelessness (of the patient or someone else), so either guilt or anger intervenes. A sense of helplessness and hopelessness resulting in depression is common. Metabolic rate increases as much as 100 , and nausea and anorexia hinder the increased food intake necessary to meet metabolic demands. It is easy for these patients to become sullen, obstinate, and uncooperative. Curtis Artz, first President of the American Burn Association and one of the early advocates of separate burn centers, is quoted (Dahinterova, l967) as follows
