Monty Hutson, a Consulting Hypnotist that created an Alternative Solution to helping with P.T.S. (Post-Traumatic Stress). Has developed “Neuro-Traumatic Resourcing” (Non-Therapeutic Hypnotism). This method is used to assist with a person’s challenges/issues. In order for us to officially work with a client, they have to have been diagnosed by a medical professional who is licensed and has the proper authority to diagnose P.T.S.D. Once the perspective client has the proper paperwork or referral from their Doctor or Medical Professional we can proceed with our process of helping them. Our goal is to assist the Veteran to Regain a Positive Mental Attitude or to Manage Situational Stress. To accurately work with a client we must apply a Reasonable Person Test. This will determine if we can continue to move forward. In certain cases, we may offer a Service Dog to help with on going issues, for this reason, we want to ensure that the Veteran is capable of taking care of the animal without creating further stress. We prefer working with the client’s Doctor or Medical Professional so that they are involved and aware of the help we are providing.
Monty coined the phrase “The Military Condition” in relating to service members and families who spent any amount of time serving the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard. The conditioning starts when the individual enlists in the military and starts working with the recruiter. Learning about military life and duties along with the job (MOS) that they signed up for sets the stage for the Military Condition. The military is a whole different lifestyle that can be very demanding at times. The language is different, they dress differently and they’re held accountable to the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) 24-hrs a day. The military also teaches teamwork along with skills that you normally would not acquire as a civilian. Let’s face it the military is designed for defending America and that’s what they specialize in.
Many people do not realize that PTSD is contagious to those closest to them. If a person is suffering from the symptoms such as restlessness, night sweats, fear of being attacked, keeping a weapon next to the bed or that somebody is planting explosives in their backyard, these can lead to more serious reactions. If there is a spouse sleeping next to a person who is experiencing this; one may start becoming fearful themselves of the very person they love the most. This is what is referred to as second generation PTSD. Is the spouse now living in fear themselves of something they never physically experienced? Who do they turn to and what do they do?
