Baylor University and Hypnosis
When looking for a topic for today, I came across Lariat, the student newspaper of Baylor University in the US. I have lately been very hard of journalism and journalists who do not do their jobs. I cannot tell you how nice it was to see that the reporting of what hypnotherapy can do in this publication was properly fact checked and well researched.
Articles like this give me hope, first in journalism as a whole. There are still dedicated professionals who want to do their job well. It also gives me hope in how hypnosis and hypnotherapy can be presented as a useful therapeutic modality. There are, of course, going to always be certain prejudices about hypnosis and hypnotherapy, but it will be the younger generation who will quite possibly have a much more open mind on this subject and that has to be a good thing.
If all people would be prepared to see that hypnosis and hypnotherapy has a lot of good quality research conducted at prestigious universities like Harvard, Stanford and UCL, perhaps its image as a parlour trick might finally become consigned to the dustbin of history where it deseervadly belongs.
