The practice of hypnosis has been around for hundreds of years, but has recently been added torepparttar growing list of alternative practices used in private clinics to treat ADHD. The use of hypnosis offers a more direct path, so to speak, intorepparttar 147081 mind to help make changes in deep-rooted behaviors. Suggestive hypnotherapy is completely different fromrepparttar 147082 traveling stage hypnotist performing tricks for audiences, like having a volunteer cluck like a chicken. Rather, clinical hypnosis tries to access parts ofrepparttar 147083 brain that have not been available to change since they have not been addressed through traditional therapy. A more direct path is sought intorepparttar 147084 mind to help make changes in certain behaviors that affect a person with ADHD. This is achieved through narrowingrepparttar 147085 focus of concentration, facilitated byrepparttar 147086 hypnotherapist. Once this focus is narrowed,repparttar 147087 hypnotherapist then retrainsrepparttar 147088 mind to use symbols and colors to help focusrepparttar 147089 mind on concentration, memory and then action. Action being, that which is controlled throughrepparttar 147090 environment. Many people with ADHD, especially children, tend to be kinesthetic learners. Meaning, they need movement in order to learn or pay attention. Often they will be seen tapping their pencils, their hands or standing up and sitting down while listening to a teacher orrepparttar 147091 person talking to them. They are able to "absorb" information through movement or action. This can be distracting to other people. By teachingrepparttar 147092 person to focus on a symbol or a color they may use this symbol kinesthetically, in their mind, help them to focus on what they are learning. I also recommend they hold in their hand a stress ball; this allows them to kinesthetically learn without distracting others.
