Treating ADHD with Hypnosis and Neurotherapy.
Barabasz, Arreed; Barabasz, Marianne
Traditional diagnosis procedures for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may lead to over-diagnosis and are fraught with complications because the target behavioral symptoms are found in a variety of other disorders. Traditional treatments consisting of powerful side effect laden psychostimulant drugs and/or complex costly behavioral modification programs are at best symptom focused and palliative in nature. Both diagnostic and treatment advances derived from the neurological basis of the disorder are needed, as are habilitative treatment alternatives. This paper presents the procedural details of Instantaneous Neuronal Activation Procedure (INAP) alert hypnosis as an adjunct to neurotherapy in the treatment of ADD. ADD/ADHD diagnostic issues, demographics, traditional treatments, neurological basis, EEG assessment, and implications for the use of hypnosis are reviewed. Recent research demonstrating the efficacy and promise of neurotherapy with and without INAP alert hypnosis is discussed. (Contains 54 references.) (MKA)
