Utilizing the power of expectations

Date: 6th Feb 2024

Ulrike Bingel wrote a German introductory article on “utilizing the power of expectations”. Promoting placebo effects and avoiding nocebo effects – this is useful and possible for almost every treatment. Every intervention, every medication taken, neurostimulation or physiotherapy is also subject to an expectation effect. It is important for therapists to know that they can support their patients through authentic and empathic communication. The example of placebo analgesia can be used to illustrate effects, mechanisms and communicative aspects can be shown particularly well. Find the book by Thieme publishers here.
