Abstract

The current study's central problem is Generalized Anxiety Disorder in rescuers and how Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) triggers in rescuers. Its reasons and different bio-psychosocial factors are involved. How novel approaches such as timeline therapy with hypnosis would overcome anxiety to improve the mental health of rescuers; therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of Timeline therapy under hypnosis. The Generalized Anxiety Disorder was diagnosed with the GAD-7 scale and subjective rating scale through Qusai's Experimental design. Twenty-five rescuers have participated in this research through the purposive sampling technique. Those rescuers who scored 15 or above (severe anxiety) on the GAD-7 scale were qualified for therapeutic sessions. The participants were given four therapy sessions in specific therapeutic rooms. There was found a significant statistical difference in pre & post-analysis through paired sample t-test. Paired sample t-test exhibited a significant effect of the timeline therapy on the management of Generalized Anxiety Disorder. The present study results clearly show that generalized anxiety disorder can be relieved through Timeline Therapy with Hypnosis. This intervention technique is beneficial in providing immediate relief to patients, reducing the frequency, severity, and duration of symptoms in a shorter period than other therapies such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT).
