Abstract


People living with HIV/AIDS have many psychosocial problems like anxiety, low self esteem, poor quality of life, lack of coping skills etc. To deal with such problems hypnotherapy can be used. Hypnosis a state of focused attention with heightened receptivity for acceptable suggestions. Very few researches have been done on subjective well being of people living with HIV/AIDS and people who are suffering with dermatitis. To study the effect of hypnotherapy on subjective well-being of people living with HIV+; total 180 HIV+ people were selected, 90 in control group and 90 in Experimental group. 16 sessions of 90 min each per subject was given. Pre and post testing was done using Nagpal Sell Subjective Well Being Instrument, before starting the intervention and after finishing the intervention respectively. After two months follow-up was done by conducting the test again. Subjective Well - Being of people living with HIV+ and people suffering from dermatitis improved after the therapeutic interventions. Hypnotherapy is very effective in improving Subjective Well - Being in which their general well being positive affect, Expectation achievement congruence, confidence in coping etc are increased in case of subjects under experimental group as compared to subjects under control groups.
