Hypnoanalysis for Skin Disorders (pp.163-176) $100.00
Authors:  (Philip D. Shenefelt, Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida, USA)
Many skin disorders have a psychosomatic component. Hypnosis can
have a favorably influence on the disorder through autonomic,
psychoneuroimmunologic, altered perception, or behavior modification
mechanisms. Hypnoanalysis may prove effective in cases resistant to
conventional therapies and not responsive to usual hypnotic suggestions. The
development of this technique is described. Focused history-taking coupled
with hypnoanalysis using ideomotor finger signals can detect positive
responses to one or more of seven common triggering or exacerbating
factors. The C.O.M.P.A.S.S. mnemonic is used for the seven factors
representing: (1) Conflict, (2) Organ language, (3) Motivation, (4) Past
experiences, (5) Active identification, (6) Self-punishment, and (7)
Suggestion. This permits systematic determination of whether there is a
significant psychosomatic component affecting the skin disorder. If no factor
is positive, a psychosomatic component can likely be excluded. If one or two
or even three of the seven factors are positive and it is possible to identify the
initiating, sensitizing or precipitating event, treatment by reframing with
suggestions in hypnosis may succeed in defusing the associated negative
emotional impact associated with the psychosomatic component of the skin
disorder. However, if multiple of the seven factors are positive, referral to an
appropriate psychotherapist is recommended in addition to reframing with
suggestions. Therapy can then be directed more appropriately to both the
non-psychosomatic and the psychosomatic aspects of the skin disorders.The
ability to differentiate the extent of psychosomatic aspects of the skin
disorders can lead to a more rational approach to these often puzzling cases.
