A number of clinicians and researchers have claimed that dissociative identity disorder (DID), earlier known as multiple personality disorder is actually an iatrogenic condition ... There has been compelling evidence that DID is caused by suggestion-based psychotherapy such as hypnosis or hypnotherapy.
The trance state during hypnosis makes individuals highly susceptible to suggestibility. In such a state, when the therapist asks some leading questions about another thought process or behavior pattern, it tends to induce DID. Such questions or instructions in a hypnotic state, which involves extremely high suggestibility, lead to the emergence of other alters ...

... the social world of high self-monitors differs from that of low self-monitors. The social world of high self-monitors is very compartmentalized, with different individuals (friends, acquaintances) linked with different specific activities. Whereas the social world of low self-monitors is less uncategorized, with individuals not necessarily related to specific activities http://www.lifeandpsychology.com/2017/05/individual-differences-and.html

No one wants to be disliked and socially rejected. It becomes a troubling experience for the individual and takes him/her away from the normal and the usual. Out of all this, due to self-reflection, the individual rises above all the negativity and moves towards a phase in which he/she finds meaning and purpose in life. Social rejection, then, can take the individual towards self-discovery, even if it is a troubled and painful path ...

Act psychology, founded by the German philosopher and psychologist Franz Brentano, emphasized that the subject matter of psychology should be mental activity. It suggests that consciousness is a unity and that psychological events should be defined as phenomena, expressed as acts and processes. Act psychology, thus, opposed the Wundtian perspective of reducing consciousness into smaller elements, suggesting it loses the essence of experience. Act psychology, was later carried forward by Carl Stumpf, and then Edmund Husserl. It had a major influence in the beginning of functionalism, Gestalt psychology, phenomenological psychology, and humanistic psychology.

At a time when Wundtian psychology was dominant and consistently on the rise, it was Franz Brentano and, later on, Carl Stumpf who proposed an alternative perspective. Opposing Wundt’s idea of reducing conscious experience to sensory elements, Brentano and Stumpf proposed the idea of mental events and phenomena. Their emphasis on the unity of consciousness and subjective experiences led to the beginning of the Gestalt and the phenomenological movements in psychology, making their approach to be highly significant in the development of modern psychology ... new article on my blog - "The Movement Parallel to Wundtian Psychology" http://www.historyofpsychology.net/2017/08/the-movement-parallel-to-wundtian.html

People with positive evaluations of self and others have positive and healthy interpersonal interactions; they are comfortable being around others. People with negative evaluations of self and others tend to have maladaptive interpersonal interactions; they may not have long-lasting relationships, they may always be distrustful, and be distant from others ...

Hypnosis, used in its current form is associated with the Scottish surgeon James Braid. He gave the term "neurohypnology" and wrote a book on it in 1843. He was also known to be the person to use the terms "hypnotism" and "hypnotist". Neurohypnology was then shortened to the term "hypnosis". Due the significance of Braid in the usage of hypnosis in its current form, he is often considered the first genuine hypnotherapist or the founder of hypnotherapy and the father of modern hypnosis ...
