This is an anonymous international research survey of hypnosis clinicians and researchers that is conducted to provide a comprehensive descriptive summary of (a) current practices and views of professionals using clinical hypnosis for treatment, (b) perceptions of both hypnosis clinicians and researchers about the relative importance of different priorities over the next decade in clinical and non-clinical hypnosis research, and (c) views of hypnosis researchers about the relative importance of different specific research practices for ensuring quality research in the field. This is of importance, as there is no such broad information about the field of professional hypnosis available in the recent empirical literature.
The purpose of the study is to understand if and how teachers use experiential teaching.
Brain development in the first years of life is the most dynamic and perhaps the most important phase of postnatal brain development. In this time period there is a significant increase in overall brain size (with the brain reaching 80-90% of adult volume by age two) and the rapid development of a wide range of cognitive and motor functions. The ability to document brain development during this period of rapid and critical modification is absolutely essential to shed light on our understanding of brain development. This information not only offers profound scientific implications regarding our understanding of how the brain orchestrates the complex functional and cognitive developments but also provides great insights into possible mechanisms and etiology of developmental disorders. While results have been reported in the literature along these directions, two major limitations are associated with these studies. First, most of the studies
The purpose of this study is to see if voters evaluate politicians who change their positions on issues differently depending on how the position change is presented.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of various experimental drugs to improve health outcomes for people with COVID-19. We also want to see if these study drugs are safe to use, and if these study drugs can stop the disease process and prevent patients from getting sicker. This study is designed to quickly identify safe and effective drugs that may treat COVID-19.
