Finally, a scientific review on integrative health
Why did you change the magazine “Hypnosis and Health” to “Hypnosis and Integrative Health”?

Professor Biwi – First and foremost, because hypnosis is a whole part of the field of integrative health.

Health workers and psychologists are also hypnotherapists or practice other practices such as acupuncture or meditation.

In light of this reality, the development of the journal was necessary, especially as complementary practices become an increasing part of our society and take root in our health care institutions.

Field systems are evolving, especially in hospitals, such as the Institute for Integrative and Complementary Medicine (IMIC) at Purdue University Hospital, which offers meditation and hypnosis to caregivers and patients.

A-MCA is a partner of the magazine. Why this choice?

Veronique Suissa This review represents a major advance in the field of integrative health.

Moreover, it is an extension of the work of A-MCA which originally consists of a network of highly qualified experts, and also publishes on these topics or as part of institutional work.

It therefore seemed appropriate for us to give them the opportunity to participate in the publishing work of this new journal but also to leverage field experiences and clinical cases and provide practical papers across our network of in-house practitioners.

In addition, the A-MCA also has the mission of democratizing these topics. This journal is a new step towards achieving this goal and expanding its scope to include the academic audience.

Can this scientific journal, now dedicated to the world of hospitals and universities, still be supportive of the general public, especially the elderly?

Professor Biwi The magazine already existed under the name “Journal of Hypnosis and Health” and was directed to the general public.

Today, it has become the “Journal of Hypnosis and Integrative Health” and has become scholarly with access to CAIRN information, both nationally and internationally.

However, the journal maintains a dimension of practical information for the general public and for the ecosystem of professionals, who are not necessarily experienced in complementary medicine, especially caregivers, health executives or even nursing home managers, etc., hospitals and patient associations.

Thus, the general public interested in these topics will have access to informed information. Seniors are an integral part of this general population that strives to be more active in their health through prevention and healthy lifestyles.

Is it also support for the more institutional ecosystem, such as senior managers and elected officials?

Veronique Suissa – completely. Above all, many institutional managers (nursing homes, hospitals, companies, etc.) incorporate certain practices for the quality of life of their users or employees but lack standards.

Likewise, more and more elected officials are concerned with these topics without having in-depth knowledge in the field: scientific advances, training standards, regulations, and field systems.

This is also the full meaning of the presence of A-MCA within the Ministerial Group led by the Ministry of Health. These actors, who sometimes face a lack of knowledge of the scientific literature or concrete applications of these practices, will be able to obtain standards.

Especially since many initiatives exist but are not always organized, valuable or coordinated. The magazine will provide them with informed information.
