    Veteran-Friendly Guided Imagery Adopted in Scores of VA Hospitals!!!

    I keep thinking the Nineties were just a few years ago, but no, it’s been almost 30 years since we first started providing guided imagery to VA facilities. And boy, have things changed since then.

  2. How One VA Hospital Sold Its Veterans & Staff on Guided Imagery

    How One VA Hospital Sold Its Veterans & Staff on Guided Imagery

    We want to give a full, noisy, enthusiastic shoutout to the Hines V.A. Hospital in the Chicago area, for being the very first VAMC to offer a customized streaming page of guided imagery and meditation audios – private, portable, and accessible 24/7 - to Iraq and Afghanistan war Veterans and their families. The streaming page and the program are called Veterans for Wellness.

  3. V.A. to Launch FREE, 6-Session Guided Imagery Certificate Training Course, System-Wide!

    V.A. to Launch FREE, 6-Session Guided Imagery  Certificate Training Course, System-Wide!

    This week the V.A. is rolling out an introductory video course in Guided Imagery, the prelude to a 6-session, comprehensive course that will be available FREE to any employee in the entire system, and – get this! – soon to the general professional community as well 

    It looks like it will deliver somewhere around 9 contact hours of CECs (10.5 with the intro), to physicians, social workers, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, dentists, dieticians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and kinesthesiologists. 

    Now, we’ve always seen hot spots of intense enthusiasm for guided imagery in VA’s around the US, and we’ve been shipping guided imagery audios, streaming pages and Playaways to VAMC’s since 1993. But this level of full-blown, system-wide VA support?? UNPRECEDENTED! For us, it’s a dream come true…in fact, I honestly never thought I’d see the day.

    We talk about shame in the singular quite a bit, don’t we? Sometimes we partner it with guilt (though, as we’ve said before, we do make sure to separate the two), but shame rarely works alone.  That’s because it tends to create more problems and delay healing others.

    Here are some studies that tell the tale — or some important new pieces of it:

  5. Simple Meditation Techniques Outperform Standard V.A. Trauma Therapies in 2 Recent Randomized Controlled Research Studies

    Simple Meditation Techniques Outperform Standard V.A. Trauma Therapies in 2 Recent Randomized Controlled Research Studies

    Recent studies are clarifying and refining what works best for reducing the severity of posttraumatic stress symptoms in our Veterans, turning long-held assumptions upside down.

    Two recent studies find that general meditation training (ie, practices that do not focus on specific traumas, but instead serve as all-round resilience and self-regulation training) can do a way better job at reducing symptoms than what for years was touted at the V.A. as preferred therapies: Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) and Present-Centered Therapy (PCT).
