The practice of hypnosis has been around for hundreds of years, but has recently been added to growing list of alternative practices used in private clinics to treat ADHD. The use of hypnosis offers a more direct path, so to speak, into mind to help make changes in deep-rooted behaviors. Suggestive hypnotherapy is completely different from traveling stage hypnotist performing tricks for audiences, like having a volunteer cluck like a chicken. Rather, clinical hypnosis tries to access parts of brain that have not been available to change since they have not been addressed through traditional therapy. A more direct path is sought into mind to help make changes in certain behaviors that affect a person with ADHD. This is achieved through narrowing focus of concentration, facilitated by hypnotherapist. Once this focus is narrowed, hypnotherapist then retrains mind to use symbols and colors to help focus mind on concentration, memory and then action. Action being, that which is controlled through 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 or person talking to them. They are able to "absorb" information through movement or action. This can be distracting to other people. By teaching 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.
Dating Online in SafetyWritten by Roy Barker
Dating online can be great fun, stimulating and exciting. So let's first get it into perspective. Some of us just like to have fun but are sick of singles bars and other similar nite spots that are last resort for finding a decent partner or lover. They often result in wrong person even if you are lucky enough to meet someone. Or, you may have once upon a time met someone that 'fitted bill' but over time this has proved not to be case any longer, so.......long story short, you are now once again looking for a better fit. You might be just plain lonely or recently dumped by that someone who promised to be there forever. If you're senior in years, you may just be seeking a companion or someone who has similar interests. These days, it's quite likely that you are someone who's busy most of time and don't have time to go galavanting around place looking for a date and attending dinner parties with hope that your friends have selected a decent blind date on your behalf. Whatever your reason, online dating can definitely help make it happen much sooner than many of tedious activities which most of us have experienced at some stage. Of course, you are also able to do this late at night (24/7) in your 'jim jams' when you have time or better still, inclination.
If you've found what you believe to be a quality site, and it has a large enough data base to support your searches, then you're half way there. While I'm on it, you would be best to register with 2 or 3 dating sites so that you can spread you options that much further.
This brings us to an extremely important consideration and most imperative part of process – Your Safety!
I won't pretend to have all answers, but as much as Internet dating sites have proven time after time that they 'deliver goods', someone nasty or let me say unscrupulous turns up. These loathsome characters can be easily avoided simply by following these rules and proceeding with caution. Follow these guidelines and you will enjoy what could be beginning of a wonderful relationship without taking any risks.
