Journal of Organizational Knowledge Management (2011): 1-8, 2011.
Abstract: Although the amount of interaction with computers is increasing in the current digital age, humans are still facing emotional problems at work. This research looks at the effectiveness of new age techniques such as Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Time Line TherapyTM (TLT) in getting over, or reducing the intensity of negative emotions attached to memories of stressful events in the past among people involved with information technology (IT). This experimental research involved 20 test subjects from the IT department of various organisations and 32 control group subjects. Statistical T-Tests revealed that with the test group, there were significant reductions in intensity levels of negative emotions after undergoing the procedures compared with before, with all three methods. There were no significant changes in the control group.
