HBLU On TV's Worst Case Scenario

HBLU On TV's Worst Case Scenario Judith Swack writes:"Then I watched the Worst Case Scenario where they taught a woman how to overcome her fear (actually disgust) of rats by having her walk down a 600 foot sewer pipe with 500 rats in it. Her second challenge was to go into a small room full of 500 rats, pick up two of them (properly by the base of the tail so they won’t bite you) and put them in a cage. The woman almost fainted, threatened repeatedly to throw up, and was hysterical during both."




Curing fear and disgust of rats is easy with METs!JUDITH TO APPEAR ON TELEVISION’S
WORST CASE SCENARIO SHOW

As some of you already know, I went to Los Angeles the weekend of November 24, 2002 to film an episode of Worst Case Scenario. Worst Case Scenario is a syndicated 1 hour television show produced by Sony Pictures that is aired on TBS Superstation on Wednesdays at 9:00 and 11:00 P.M. The premise of the show is that you can overcome your worst fears if you have the right skills and knowledge. Each week a portion of the show is dedicated to a volunteer challenge. The volunteer is taught how to overcome a specific phobia by teaching him/her the facts and the skills to handle the fearful situation (for example, how to deal with alligators or rats.) I was asked to cure a woman of her phobia of the dark using HBLU because there were no specific reality skills they could teach her to overcome that fear.


Naturally, I was inspired by the premise of the show, and I was very excited to have the opportunity to publicly demonstrate the effectiveness of HBLU, and energy psychology techniques in general. Fortunately, I was working with a very respectful, thoughtful, and deep producer who had trained in psychology! He always takes a very careful history of each volunteer subject that he works with. Thus, we prepared my client by having her complete the standard HBLU homework assignment, ie. write a two page biography with a list of goals, a list of ways in which you sabotage yourself, a list of 10 experiences that really made you live, and identify your Enneagram personality type. She also had to read an explanation of HBLU and my paper on trauma, "The Basic Structure of Loss and Violence Trauma" (available on my website at www.HBLU.org) Although she did not really understand the methodology before experiencing it, she did realize that HBLU was different from talk or desensitization therapy.


Then I watched the Worst Case Scenario where they taught a woman how to overcome her fear (actually disgust) of rats by having her walk down a 600 foot sewer pipe with 500 rats in it. The point they were proving was that rats won’t really jump on or bite you. If you give them enough warning and shoo them away, they will get out of your way because they don’t want to be stepped on. Her second challenge was to go into a small room full of 500 rats, pick up two of them (properly by the base of the tail so they won’t bite you) and put them in a cage. The woman almost fainted, threatened repeatedly to throw up, and was hysterical during both challenges. After the final challenge where she declared that she was very glad she had done this, someone asked her if she would now like a pet rat… and she flinched. Clearly, reality did not cure her phobia/compulsion structure of rats. However, the emotional reactions did make for suspenseful and riveting TV. I was on the edge of my chair the whole time wondering is she going to throw up, yet (live on TV!)? Is she really going to faint?


Knowing that HBLU would really cure our phobia client, I told the producer that she would go through her challenge as easily and calmly as anyone without a phobia. There would be no fainting, vomiting, screaming, crying, or hysteria. I was afraid this calm would be boring, and thus not good TV. To his credit, the producer believed me and agreed that this would not be good TV.

We decided to play up the before treatment reaction so that the drama would be in the contrast between before and after. That worked out beautifully.


We tested the client before treatment. I then described the fight/flight/freeze reflex and how we were going to neutralize that reaction by consciously activating her calming reflex with Natural Bio-Destressing (a modification of EFT). (See my papers, The Biochemistry of Energy Psychology and Antidote for the Psychological Effects of Terrorism: A Rapid, Biological Technique for Clearing Trauma from Mind and Body.) I then treated her with protocols and techniques from HBLU Level I and one protocol from HBLU Level II. As (I) expected, she cleared completely and after calmly accomplishing her challenge remarked that now she was ready for the "real" challenge. T

he next day, one of the production assistants called to tell us that our work had inspired and amazed the entire crew.


The producer tells me that this show will air sometime in the spring. He is only given 1-2 week’s notice, so I’ll let you know when I know. In the meantime, keep checking your TV guide for Worst Case Scenario.
