New Book Reveals a Fascinating Look at the Human Brain
Author sheds light on hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for multiple personalities and post traumatic stress disorder
Reno, NV (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Humans and all animals have brains, but what makes the human brain unique is its advanced facility for thought, comprehension and problem solving. The human brain is the most magnificent and fascinating thing in the world. In Bernice And Her Multiple Personalities, author Zora O Young, M.D., explores this amazing organ, how it adapts and copes with trauma.
The mind is a complex thing and in this compelling book, readers will learn how the mind can become fractured by trauma and how it can be put back together again using hypnotherapy. Bernice And Her Multiple Personalities explores this concept through the story of Bernice–the traumas that caused her fracture (dissociation) into pieces and how hypnosis was used attach disconnected parts and restore them to the “conscious” mind by reprogramming it.
Young believes that hypnosis is underutilized and that medications used may treat symptoms but the underlying problem remains uncorrected. Some mental illnesses are in fact caused by mental programming that can be changed by verbal psychotherapy rather than the conventional treatment of medication. In this book, he stresses the effective use of hypnosis to treat not only multiple personalities but also Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). To prove his case, he has included vignettes from other cases in which hypnosis was used to undo the effects of PTSD.
A compelling read, Bernice And Her Multiple Personalities unravels the mystery of how multiple personalities are created and resolved. It teaches readers to understand how a psychotherapist and a client may work together to change illness into health. It also gives them a better understanding on how the mind works as a computer.
