How are the sessions of hypnosis performed

The effectiveness of non-verbal inductive hypnosis

The high efficiency of this integrated approach (87.2 % of patients) was tested on catamnesis during the year. The end of sessions does not alter the presence of disgust, or aggression to the "drug". The presence of similar manifestations  response during the collective sessions, the presence of an emotional response often facial expressions, gestures, appearance and voice modulation is primarily allowed to try work in the group of patients without the possibility of direct voice communication. The example is the patient from Greece, who absolutely did not know Russian language and spoke through the interpreter. In this case a non-verbal hypnosis takes place through collective sessions, the hypnotic impact in this case is non-verbal and is embedded inside the patients group. The interpreter only gave the keywords - "codes" that shape attitude to drugs - "drug is death», "drug is the pain," "drug is suffering."

As a rule, the state of stupefaction is partially or completely sunk, in this state the pain threshold is significantly changed. «Responsiveness» to the hypnosis is manifested as "phenomena of exclusion":

1. Screams, followed by falling, functional seizures (usually tonic) with reiterations of single words, phrases, crying, sometimes with incongruous speech excitation;

2. Nausea, vomiting, tremor of the limbs and severe autonomic reactions;

3. Significant emotional responce with tears and remorse for what the patient did in the past;

In some cases, this condition manifested with symptoms of catalepsy, fetal position and automatic oral reflexes.

In the end of sessions the general conditions of all participants were defined with severe physical fatigue of vegetative symptoms. Everything that happens on the sessions is under control and regulation of the psychotherapist and is completely reduced after the sessions of hypnosis.

The securing of the fixed negative facts from the past and strengthening of sensations during collective sessions is held in individual psychotherapeutic conversation. The problem is solved by active memorizing of situations that happened previously due to drug intoxication. Very often they are seen as long-forgotten or very difficult to remember. The patient with closed eyes is persistently invited to relive those tragic episodes, focusing on every single image. This image is fixed, mentally imposed externally, changed in shape and color under the guidance of a doctor. Therapist observes the patient, his sensory, motor, autonomic and ocular manifestations. In order to improve the effect one is left for 10 - 15 minutes alone, in front of his own memories of the tragic result of the situation described.
