Conditioning is a learned, recurring behavior pattern. Classical conditioning describes a stimulus-response pattern that has been learned in the course of life. It was founded by the Russian physiologist Ivan Petrovich Pavlov. His learning theory states that new responses can be added through learning. A certain stimulus triggers a certain reaction again and again. On the one hand, there are the reflexes that each of us possesses and that are innate. With time, more and more conditioning is added, which sits deep in the subconscious. These can be behaviors and unconscious reactions to certain situations are. In hypnosis, the subconscious is used to dissolve conditioning and to put new, helpful things in their place.
