Research in sports, dance and rehabilitation has shown that Basic Action Concepts (BACs) are fundamental building blocks of mental action representations. BACs are based on chunked body postures related to common functions for realizing action goals. In this paper, we outline issues in research methodology and an experimental method, SDA-M (structural dimensional analysis of mental representation), to assess action-relevant representational structures that reflect the organization of BACs. The SDA-M reveals a strong relationship between cognitive representation and performance if complex actions are performed. We show how the SDA-M can improve motor imagery training and how it contributes to our understanding of coaching processes. The SDA-M capitalizes on the objective measurement of individual mental movement representations before training and the integration of these results into the motor imagery training. Such motor imagery training based on mental representations has been applied successfully in

Mental time travel refers to the ability to recall episodic past and imagine future events. The present study aimed to investigate cultural differences in mental time travel between Chinese and Australian university students. A total of 231 students (108 Chinese & 123 Australians) participated in the study. Their mental time travel abilities were measured by the Sentence Completion for Events from the Past Test (SCEPT) and the Sentence Completion for Events in the Future Test (SCEFT). Results showed that there were no cultural differences in the number of specific events generated for the past or future. Significant differences between the Chinese and Australian participants were found mainly in the emotional valence and content of the events generated. Both Chinese and Australian participants generated more specific positive events compared to negative events when thinking about the future and Chinese participants were more positive about their past than Australian participants when recalled specific
The relevance of individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy in the context of post-apartheid South Africa is a contentious issue. The western-centric universalist bias of this treatment approach has been criticised for not being applicable to Black South African individuals. With these criticisms in mind the appropriacy and efficacy of psychoanalytic psychotherapy was examined by focusing on three Black English-speaking South African women between the ages of 25 and 35 from the urban Western Cape. A collective case study design situated within a postmodern framework of enquiry was chosen for its capacity to incorporate both the therapists and the participants experience of the therapeutic process over time. This study focused on the analytic attitude, which comprises the basic template through which psychoanalytic psychotherapy is practised. The model used was that described by Ivey (1999) which includes five elements: generative uncertainty, abstinence, neutrality, countertransference ...

There is a growing body of evidence that social phobia may be treated effectively by either pharmacologic or cognitive-behavioral interventions. but few studies have examined the relative benefits of these treatments. In this study, we examined the relative efficacy of pharmacotherapy with clonazepam and cognitive-behavioral group therapy (CBGT) for treating social phobia. In addition, we examined potential predictors of differential treatment response. Outpatients meeting Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (3rd ed., revised) criteria for social phobia were randomly assigned to treatment. Clinician-rated and patient-rated symptom severity was examined at baseline and after 4, 8, and 12 weeks of treatment. All clinician-rated assessments were completed by individuals blind to treatment condition. Patients in both conditions improved significantly, and differences between treatment conditions were absent, except for greater improvement on clonazepam on several measures at the 12-week
BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy (RT) has become an important treatment modality in pediatric oncology, but its delivery to young children with cancer is challenging and general anesthesia is often needed. METHODS: To evaluate whether a psychoeducational intervention might reduce the need for anesthesia, 223 consecutive pediatric cancer patients receiving 4141 RT fractions during 244 RT courses between February 1989 and January 2006 were studied. Whereas in 154 RT courses corresponding with 2580 RT fractions patients received no psychoeducational intervention (group A), 90 RT courses respectively 1561 RT fractions were accomplished by using psychoeducational intervention (group B). This tailored psychoeducational intervention in group B included a play program and interactive support by a trained nurse according to age to get familiar with staff, equipment and procedure of radiotherapy. RESULTS: Group A did not differ significantly from group B in age at RT, gender, diagnosis, localization of RT and ...

The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) is a receptive music therapy, and one of the five international models of music therapy which requires advanced clinical training. It consists of an in-depth approach to music psychotherapy, a creative process where imagery is evoked during music listening (Bonny, 1990).. The Bonny Method of GIM was devised by Helen Bonny, a humanistic music therapist and researcher who developed this model at Maryland Psychiatric Hospital (USA) in the 1960s. GIM has spead over the world with various clinical applications. Formal training in the method is offered according to the standards of the Association for Music and Imagery (AMI).. GIM belongs to the holistic and psychodynamic traditions of psychotherapy, and was originally conceived for self exploration and actualisation. Through development and research, there is now scientific evidence for effectiveness in various clinical fields, especially with clients with stress related and psychosomatic disorders. ...

Countertransference is defined as redirection of a psychotherapists feelings toward a client - or, more generally, as a therapists emotional entanglement with a client. The phenomenon of countertransference (German: Gegenübertragung) was first defined publicly by Sigmund Freud in 1910 (The Future Prospects of Psycho-Analytic Therapy) as being "a result of the patients influence on [the physicians] unconscious feelings"; although Freud had been aware of it privately for some time, writing to Carl Jung for example in 1909 of the need "to dominate counter-transference, which is after all a permanent problem for us". Freud stated that since an analyst is a human himself he can easily let his emotions into the client. Because Freud saw the countertransference as a purely personal problem for the analyst, he rarely referred to it publicly, and did so almost invariably in terms of a "warning against any countertransference lying in wait" for the analyst, who "must recognize this ...

I attended a very good lecture last week on contemporary views of countertransference. It inspired me to write a brief overview of the concept here, with more to follow.. To understand countertransference, it helps to tackle transference first. Transference was a word coined by Sigmund Freud to label the way patients "transfer" feelings from important persons in their early lives, onto the psychoanalyst or therapist. Psychoanalysis was specifically designed to encourage transference. Intentional opacity and non-disclosure by the therapist promotes transference; the patient naturally makes assumptions about the therapists likes and dislikes, attitude toward the patient, life outside the office, and so forth. These assumptions are based on the patients experiences with, and assumptions regarding, other important relationships, such as childhood relations with parents. In this way the patients formative dynamics are re-created in the therapy office for both participants to observe. Patients ...

Some patients with schizophrenia report that their limbs are under the control of an alien force (motor passivity). This is hypothesised to be due to the dysfunction of an internal self-monitoring system that normally permits distinctions between internally generated and external influences on intentional behaviour. Motor imagery is the mental simulation of specific motor actions and it is based upon the internal representation of intended but unexecuted motor actions. Therefore, the generation of motor imagery should be impaired in schizophrenia characterised by passivity phenomena. The generation of motor imagery was compared using the visually guided pointing task (VGPT) and the Florida praxis imagery questionnaire (FPIQ) between patients with schizophrenia characterised by high levels of passivity symptoms (passivity) and patients without passivity symptoms (no-passivity). In both the passivity and no-passivity groups, the speed of real motor sequences on the VGPT was constrained by the ...
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a common and severe disorder in which a person is preoccupied by perceived defects in his or her appearance. The purpose of this research study is to learn more about two different forms of therapy to help individuals with BDD: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a promising new treatment for BDD, and supportive psychotherapy (SPT), the most commonly received therapy for BDD. The investigators would like to find out which treatment is more effective for BDD. The investigators will also examine patient characteristics that may predict response to treatment.. Participants will be randomly assigned (like the flip of a coin) to receive 22 sessions (over 24 weeks) of either CBT or SPT. Both treatments teach participants about BDD. CBT focuses on helping participants to develop more adaptive thoughts and beliefs and to gradually reduce avoidance and compulsive (repetitive) behaviors. SPT focuses on relationships, feelings, and other factors that may affect BDD ...
This study is investigating a new brief psychotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which, modifies an already proven psychotherapy for PTSD by adding two new components and modifying several others. The goal of the study is to determine whether this experimental treatment outperforms the well-established standard treatment. Individuals between the ages of 18-65 with chronic PTSD are randomly assigned to one of three psychotherapy conditions: (a) brief enhanced exposure therapy; (b) standard prolonged exposure therapy; and (c) delayed standard exposure therapy. All study participants undergo a phone and face-to-face screening assessment to determine study eligibility and baseline (pretreatment-Week 0) symptom severity. Upon completing treatment, participants undergo three additional assessment visits (Week 6, Week 10, and Week 22). During each of these outcome assessment visits, participants complete a structured clinical interview and a battery of computer-administered questionnaires ...
In this study, we will treat patients with brief psychodynamic psychotherapy. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a type of treatment that may be as helpful as medications in treating depression. It focuses on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as well as both current and past relationships. Psychotherapy explores better ways of coping with feelings, expressing needs, and interacting with others in order to cope with depression and other life problems. Subjects will go to 16 weekly, 45-minute, individual sessions of psychodynamic psychotherapy over the course of the study. At five times throughout the study, subjects will come in for extra visits, which last approximately 1.5 hours and which include: speaking with a study doctor about depressive symptoms, filling out extra questionnaires, and performing positron emission tomography (PET)and a Quantitative Electroencephalogram (QEEG). The QEEG is a machine that measures the electrical activity of the brain. This task will take approximately 15 minutes ...

In addition, non-pharmacological treatment can help with the symptoms of dementia. These treatments include psychological and cognitive therapies (such as cognitive stimulation therapy), which can be used to improve memory skills in people living with dementia. Alternative therapies such as the therapeutic use of music or dancing, animal-assisted therapy, aromatherapy, massage and multi-sensory stimulation may help with the behavioural symptoms of dementia, and treatment can be tailored to individual needs.. I am delighted to see this inclusion, especially since our Cochrane Systematic Review (Karkou & Meekums) is well underway, of DMT for dementia. We recently presented our research at a day conference in Cambridge, organised by ICRA. The depression review (Meekums, Karkou & Nelson) was published earlier this year.. There is still much to do, including the establishment in peoples minds of the differences between dance and DMP, before our profession receives the recognition it deserves, but ...

Hypnotizability is a cognitive multidimensional trait that involves peculiar imagery characteristics. Subjects with high- (Highs) and low (Lows)-susceptibilities to hypnosis have shown different levels of skill at visual and somesthetic-guided imageries performed during upright stance. The aim of this experiment is to study the modulation of the EEG alpha and theta band amplitude during guided visual and somesthetic imageries in Highs and Lows, as these rhythms are responsive to the cognitive activities involved in mental imagery. Our results show that, at variance with standing subjects, subjects in both groups in a semi-reclined position report higher vividness and lower effort for visual than for somesthetic imagery. EEG patterns however are different between the two groups. Highs exhibit a more widespread alpha desynchronization and slightly different EEG patterns during visual and somesthetic imageries, while Lows show segregated alpha- and theta-desynchronization, without any difference between

By Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500 How can a practitioner perform a physical practice after rotator cuff surgery! pAccording to conservative estimates, in 2008, nearly two million people visited a doctor because of rotator cuff injuries, within the United States. Some estimates claim higher numbers and it makes one wonder about the global statistics. The rotator cuff, which provides stability to the shoulder, is particularly vulnerable to injuries in sports like swimming, kayaking, tennis, and baseball.. A full or partially torn rotator cuff injury may result in surgery to reduce symptoms like sharp pain and a limited range of motion. Due to the fact that the shoulders bear weight in many Yoga asanas, people who have rotator cuff surgery must be careful when resuming asana practice.. Generally, exercises that flex and extend the elbow, wrist, and hand, can be done immediately following rotator cuff surgery. Active exercise and stretches, often with physical therapist assistance, may start six to ...

We move down our hyoid bone during inhalation like fish, amphibians, some reptiles and mammals, but it started from fish. We move up our hyoid bone during exhalation like amphibians, some reptiles and mammals, but it started from amphibians. We apply our torso muscles, including intercostal muscles, during inhalation and exhalation like reptiles and mammals. This method started from reptiles. We apply our diaphragm like mammals and even crocodilians, the very special members of reptilian family. Some changes of our voice and breathing, its speed, ratio and depth have roots in apes. Finally, we can perform breathing through mouth or nostrils by our will. The breathing is closely connected to the voice and speech and our abstract ideas, like representation of cosmos by voice or imagination of it. This level of breathing control is human. The last level of breathing control is "future", the vision and feeling of future events. All levels of breathing control have close connection with emotions and ...
Alternative Treatments for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Book) : Skelly, Mari : Mainstream medicine, however useful in other areas of healing, has failed to effectively treat the complexities of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. This useful book focuses on alternative therapies for these prevalent diseases. Patients from around the world describe their experiences and coping strategies, while dozens of experts in fields ranging from naturopathy, ayurveda, and reflexology, to guided imagery, hypnosis, and guaifenesin therapy, share their knowledge. With 70 percent new material, this guide offers both insight and inspiration for those dealing with these challenging conditions.
The present study sought to investigate the impact of psychotherapy integration, incorporating some cognitive-behavioral (CB) techniques with psychodynamic-interpersonal (PI) techniques, with the moderating impact of borderline personality pathology on short-term psychodynamic psychotherapy treatment outcomes in a sample of 75 outpatients. PI and CB techniques were assessed using independent videotape ratings of therapy sessions and aspects of the alliance were determined using patient-rated scores. Axis II borderline personality pathology was measured using the Borderline Pathology Index (BPI). Treatment outcomes were measured using patients estimates of their broadband functioning (PEI) and change in global symptom index of the brief symptom inventory (BSI-GSI-RCI). Findings of preliminary analyses were nonsignificant; the direct relationship between patient pretreatment borderline pathology with the flexible integration of CB and PI techniques was not significant. In addition, PI and CB ...

Deep and brief methods exist. Deep methods include autogenic training, progressive muscle relaxation (PMR), and meditation (although meditation is sometimes distinguished from relaxation based on the state of "thoughtless awareness" that is said to occur during meditation). Brief methods include self-control relaxation, paced respiration, and deep breathing. Brief methods generally require less time and often represent an abbreviated form of a deep method. Other relaxation techniques include guided imagery, deep breathing, breathing control, passive muscle relaxation, and refocusing. Applied relaxation involves imagination of relaxing situations with the intention of inducing muscular and mental relaxation. Another popular technique is progressive relaxation, in which the individual is taught what it feels like to relax by comparing relaxation with muscle tension. Progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) is said to require several months of practice at least three times per week in order to be able ...
Objective: Brain stimulation has the potential to become a valuable intervention for patients with severe upper-limb paresis following brain injury, surgery or stroke. Neuromodulation has been shown to be most effective in inducing plasticity when applied in conjunction with repetitive motor practice. Novel Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) based training environments are a promising solution to facilitate motor restoration substituting the disturbed efferent channel of the human motor system and enabling brain-state dependent application of brain stimulation.. Method: We introduced a training set-up that consists of both gravity-compensating and robot-controlled devices for the upper extremity of patients with severe arm and hand paresis. Embedded in closed-loop brain-computer interface (BCI) technology this set-up allowed patients to volitionally control an orthosis attached to their paretic extremity by the modulation of brain oscillations. The significant increase of BCI control was paralleled ...
A brain-computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a neural-control interface (NCI), mind-machine interface (MMI), direct neural interface (DNI), or brain-machine interface (BMI), is a direct communication pathway between an enhanced or wired brain and an external device. BCI differs from neuromodulation in that it allows for bidirectional information flow. BCIs are often directed at researching, mapping, assisting, augmenting, or repairing human cognitive or sensory-motor functions. Research on BCIs began in the 1970s at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) under a grant from the National Science Foundation, followed by a contract from DARPA. The papers published after this research also mark the first appearance of the expression brain-computer interface in scientific literature. The field of BCI research and development has since focused primarily on neuroprosthetics applications that aim at restoring damaged hearing, sight and movement. Thanks to the remarkable cortical ...

Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a chronic and relapsing condition characterized by harmful alcohol intake and behavioral-cognitive changes. AUD is the most common cause of liver disease in the Western world. Alcohol abstinence is the cornerstone of therapy in alcoholic patients affected with liver disease. Medical recommendations, brief motivational interventions and psychosocial approach are essential pieces of the treatment for these patients; however, their efficacy alone may not be enough to achieve total alcohol abstinence. The addition of pharmacological treatment could improve clinical outcomes in AUD patients. Moreover, pharmacological treatments for AUD are limited in patients with advanced liver disease, since impaired liver function affects drugs metabolism and could increase the risk of drugs-related hepatotoxicity. At present, only baclofen has been tested in RCTs in patients with advanced liver disease. This medication was effective to reduce alcohol intake, to promote alcohol abstinence and
