Hypnotherapy as an Effective Modulation for Enhancing Subjective Vitality of People living with HIV/AIDS and Dermatitis

Abstract: Subjective Vitality refers to the essence of life and is often defined as an animating force, or principle of life. It is a sense of “feeling really alive,” invigorated, or full of energy and enthusiasm for life. These descriptive expressions may refer to anything from a momentary feeling in the emotional swing of everyday life to physical symptoms of fatigue and improper diet. In case of HIV+ people this subjective vitality gets influenced negatively because of stigma and discrimination related to the disease and also due to psychological and physiological changes in their own mind and body. This paper tries to find out whether hypnotherapy which has been a topic of research for many researchers in western countries; proved to be effecting in dealing with many psychosocial and physical disorders and diseases is also effective in improving vitality or not. Hypnosis is a state of focused attention with heightened receptivity for acceptable suggestions. In this state, a person\'s critical or sceptical nature is bypassed, which allows them to accept suggestions. Objective: The study examines the effect of hypnotherapy on subjective vitality of people suffering from dermatitis with and without HIV+ status. Method: Total 180 people were selected, 90 in control group and 90 in Experimental group. The experimental and control groups were further divided into three more groups HIV+, HIV+ with dermatitis and Dermatitis. The intervention plan was prepared based on hypnotherapy techniques. Subjective vitality scale was used as diagnostic tool. Pre and post testing was done. After two months follow-up was done by conducting the test again. Result: Subjective vitality of people under experimental groups, suffering from dermatitis with and without seropositive status, improved significantly after the therapeutic intervention as compared to those who were in control groups. Conclusion: This shows that hypnotherapy helps in improving the zeal, enthusiasm, happiness and feeling of being alive of dermatitis people with and without HIV+ status.
