A Serious Article About Mental Health

I generally try to stay away from political discussions on this blog, but I feel compelled to share an article that appeared in The Miami Herald this past February 3rd.  The piece in question is "Science Deniers A Growing Menace," by Leonard Pitts, Jr., and can be accessed through this hyperlink:  http://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/leonard-pitts-jr/article9144815.html.  How sad that according to this source, "40 percent of those with severe mental illness receive no treatment."

Hypnosis and Testing

Various studies over the years suggest that hypnosis improves cognition, enabling students to learn more quickly.  Strong evidence similarly indicates that hypnosis can help people garner better results on tests.

As far back as when I was in elementary school, I remember hearing numerous classmates exclaim, "Oh, I have that answer on the tip of my tongue," whereupon a not-so-helpful fellow-student would invariably respond, "Then spit it out!"  For whatever reason, this is easier said than done.

Fortunately, hypnosis can eliminate the mysterious factors that apparently cause the disconnect between what is known and what can be recalled under the pressure of examination conditions.  In fact, anecdotal evidence strongly supports the assertion that students of all ages can improve test scores.  I have observed such outcomes for over a quarter-century, with the GRE, LSAT, licensing exams, and even simple mid-terms and finals.  I am happy to announce another such result with the MTEL (Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure). A grateful client who had failed on multiple occasions informed me of the successful result just a few minutes ago.  I hope others will consider this hypnotic application in future.
