 ==== ====Fear of Public Speaking? This article is very helpful!www.speakandtrain.com ==== ====What do people fear most? There are about 500 documented phobias and the list is growing. The following phobias are the most common fear-objects that lead to symptoms such as dizziness,nausea, and breathlessness. In some cases, these symptoms escalate into a full-blown panicattack. Social Phobias, The fear of social situations. In many cases, these phobias can become so severethat people avoid events, places, and people that are likely to trigger an anxiety attack. Arachnophobia, The fear of spiders. Ophidiophobia, The fear of snakes. Acrophobia, The fear ofheights. Agoraphobia, The fear of situations in which escape is difficult this may include crowdedareas, open spaces. Approximately one third of people with panic disorder develop agoraphobia.And by the time you've read this far you might even have Phobophobia, the fear of phobias. But let's talk about Glossophobia, a social phobia, the fear of public speaking. This fear is rankedhigher on the scale of fears than death. Some people are more afraid of speaking, out loud, inpublic than dying. That's a pretty heavy duty fear. So, let's see what happens; you've been asked to give a presentation, just a little talk at the officeor for your local club. You've prepared for several days going over all the details; you know exactlywhat you're going to say. The big day arrives and you're ready. Then, you remember that timewhen you were in school and made a small mistake, you miss-pronounced a word or got tonguetied. Your classmates all laughed and you felt horrible, you got real nervous and started to sweat,you couldn't breathe, you just stood there, frozen with fear. It happens now every time you step infront of a group of people numbering more than two and in truth you might not even remember theschool incident, you're just scared to death of speaking in public. To better understand how this happens let's look at how we know the brain works. First it'simportant that you imagine the brain as having several compartments or areas of expertise. Nowsome of these areas work well together and some...not so well. But, it's not their fault, it's howwe've evolved, beginning with the fight or flight response. We have four key players or experts in our drama: The amygdala, the sensory thalamus, thesensory cortex and the hippocampus. It's not necessary for you to know where these playersreside specifically in the brain just that they do The amygdala - did you ever see the movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"? In the scene wherethe trio of escaped convicts is hold up in the loft of a barn and the law has found them, Everettscurries around saying, "Damn, we're in a tight spot!" Well, the amygdala is that character! It is the
 
scaredy-cat part of the brain; always monitoring what's happening around you to see if you shouldbe afraid or not! But it doesn't do that alone, it needs some help. This is where the sensorythalamus comes along. The sensory thalamus - this part of the brain sends information to the amygdala about what'shappening around you, but it does it in a very child-like way, leaving out much of the detail andconsequently the full picture of what's happening isn't conveyed. The detail is left to the sensorycortex. The sensory cortex - The amygdala needs help in processing the information that it gets, so itsends information to its friend, the sensory cortex, to shed some light on what's happening aroundit. The sensory cortex works out in detail what exactly the information means to the body and thensends the answer back to the amygdala. The hippocampus -This is where, in simple terms, the memory camps out. When any informationcomes to the amygdala, it asks the hippocampus if it remembers it; have we seen this before, is ita threat or not? The hippocampus, being a good friend, tells the amygdala all it knows. It alsocross-checks with the sensory thalamus to make sure it is getting its facts right. But as we'vealready seen, that can be very unreliable! So, you might ask, "Can phobias be cured?" Yes, yes they can, and very quickly. Enter Hypnosis,and NLP. The American Medical Association in 1958 recognized hypnosis and hypnotherapy as aviable scientific modality, and a useful and powerful complimentary therapy. And in 1962 theAmerican Psychiatric Association recognized that hypnosis was a viable modality for effectivechange. The types of phobias that can be treated with hypnosis therapy are limitless. Most people who undergo hypnotherapy for phobic disorders will experience a diminished or non-reactive response to the stimuli. Without paralyzing fear, life once again becomes a joy toexperience. So, go on shout it out, what's there to be afraid of?" Douglas Meacham, is a Board Certified Hypnotherapist of 14 years as well as a LicensedMassage Therapist, #12196 in the state of Oregon.
