Problem: Psychotherapeutic techniques such as the aversion rely upon the formation of realistic images in the imagination and then strongly associating unpleasant feelings with those images. Aversion often fails because many people have difficulty forming aversive images and can be unwilling to associate into aversive feelings.

Solution: Our software based approach addresses these issues by providing aversive images onscreen that can reduce the need to imagine anything at all and thereafter enables aversive imagery to be accessed in the imagination much more easily. The onscreen images prime the imagination for longer lasting effects. Primal aversive sounds and images tend to generate aversive feelings instantly. We provide a number of preset aversive solutions and enable you to supply your own images and sounds for non-standard situations.

What is Aversion Therapy?

For sufferers: Aversion therapy enables you to regain control by helping you to dislike whatever it is that you are liking too much.

For therapists: Aversion therapy is a good approach to initiate any form of behaviour control. For some patients, aversion alone will be sufficient for others aversion is part of an overall process. This aversion therapy software uses multimedia to help you to install strong aversive responses that you can then reinforce.

Note: The "Generic Map Across Aversion" module allows the user to select any image as the aversive / desired image and any sound as the aversive audio. {Non progressive jpg images / 1 x 7 sec max mp3 audio file}. The user can save / reload settings and a variety of sounds and images are provided. Neutral images are provided during the initial training mode, thereafter the user's own images and sounds are used. (See below). All other modules eg "Map Across Eating" use fixed images and sounds that canot be changed by the user.

What is the NLP Map Across technique?

The NLP Map Across Technique maps the submodalities of something that is liked into the submodalities of something that is not liked or visa versa. The technique can be used to help install aversive responses (sensitization) or to enable desensitisation.

The software repeatedly associate an image of eg chocolate / chips / sugar / cake / cigarettes / drugs / alcohol with an aversive image of eg excrement.

There are currently four issue specific modules that contain animated imagery with aversive audio covering Smoking cessation, Alcohol, Eating and Drug use cessation and 1 generic Map Across Aversion module that allows the user to select their own images / audio.

Each utility is a separate software product for ordering / installation purposes and a discounted bundle package is also available for PC products. Some modules also contain mini-aversive flooding utilities and the ability to play educational videos on demand.

Most modules also contain mini utilities to facilitate aversive flooding and all modules contain utilities to enable educational videos to be played on demand. Any sample public service videos provided do not form part of the product.

What do the Map Across Technique utilities do?

The modalities of the aversive object are amplified, the modalities of the liked object are minimised, the liked object is mapped on top of the aversive object as left to right matching auditory stimulation is provided.

In real terms this means:

  • The user is directed to think about an image representing the problem
  • The problem image is positioned center left of screen
  • The problem image is faded out a little and made smaller
  • The user is directed to think about an image representing the aversive image
  • The aversive image is positioned center right of screen
  • The aversive image is pulsed (gets bigger by about 10% then returns to normal size)
  • The problem image moves into the aversive image with a whoosh sound
  • The two images are displayed at the right hand side of the screen one after another in a cycle with whoosh sounds that pan from left to right
    • As this happens sounds of vomiting are played (now in all versions apart from Mac versions) and the aversive image pulses
  • The problem image is made a little smaller and is slightly faded out
  • The user is asked to consider how they feel about the problem now

Map Across Aversion (user selected images version) may differ from the above profile slightly - eg the user can select whatever aversive audio file they wish.

Warning: These utilities can generate a strong sense of nausea. As with most aversive techniques the conditioning tends to remain for a matter of months unless reconditioned. If a therapist always gain informed consent before using aversive approaches.
