Q Transmissions

Hypnotherapy Post-Show Links and such

Posted in links by Desiree on November 7, 2008

In this evening’s episode, we learned that you cannot be hypnotized against your will, cognitive-behavior therapy is just as successful as hypnosis (but without all the lovely relaxing) and past-life regression could be attributed to inadvertent plagiarism.  And also that Edmonton has a creepy, crappy card-trick demonstrating hypnotist clown.

Thanks very much to Basia Urbanski for coming to speak to us! To learn more about her, visit her website.

Some of the sources I used for tonight’s show were:

Hypnosis entry in the Skeptics’ Dictionary
Comments about the above entry
Meta-analysis on efficacy of hypnosis
Study on Cryptomnesia
Article on Children and hypnosis in Canadian Family Physician, the official publication of the College of Family Physicians of Canada
Past Life Regression entry in Skeptics’ Dictionary

See you next week!



This Week: Hypnotherapy

Posted in links, upcoming shows by Desiree on November 3, 2008

This week we’ll be speaking with local Clinical Hypnotherapist Basia Urbanski. We’ll be discussing hypnotherapy’s curative value, what it can and can’t do, and if there’s a difference between it and when that dude made you cluck like a chicken at Capital X last summer.

We know you have questions. A veritable plethora of them, possibly. Call in this Friday and ask away.

And about our last show… thanks so much to Laura LaForce for spending her Halloween evening leading the séance. And thanks to Nathan who, as always, is wonderful about ensuring that the show gets play in a multitude of ways. Last week he videotaped us, and he’s currently building a Q Transmissions YouTube channel. If you do not have a Nathan, you should be very jealous.

And thanks again to all of you that donated to FunDrive. We appreciate knowing that people are interested enough in our show to donate money, and CJSR appreciates being able to pay their utility bills for another year.

See you on Friday!
