Anxiety Management Training Through Self-Hypnosis.
Sprinkle, R. Leo
An informal non-credit course in anxiety management offered by the author is described. The primary emphasis of this course is on self-hypnosis. Participating students are encouraged to increase their skills in relaxing and concentrating by three methods: (1) eye fixation; (2) muscular relaxation; and (3) focusing of awareness. Other techniques can be used by participants to relax more deeply; however, the techniques usually emphasize an imaginary situation in which the participant feels pleasant, comfortable, and relaxed. Participating students are encouraged to gain greater self-control by use of the Premark Principle, Contingency Management, and the RIPE Formula. The emphasis is upon bodily relaxation, imaginary situations in which the student sees himself or herself as being successful in a selected task, and reinforcing those behaviors which are "good." Also emphasized were interpersonal relationship techniques in which it is demonstrated to others that an adult-adult relationship will be sincerely, warmly, and firmly maintained. (Author/BW)
