|Title:||Providing emotional stability through relaxation training|
|Abstract:||To determine the effects of integrative relaxation training [IRT] on emotional stability, we exposed 32 patients diagnosed with anxiety disorder to a pre-test [16PF] and to 12 sessions of group psychoeducation training. Patients were randomly assigned to 2 groups [study 17 and control 15 patients]. The study group received 12 weekly group sessions of IRT. Level of anxiety was evaluated in a post-test using a questionnaire and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory [STAI]. Emotional stability and level of anxiety were significantly reduced in the study group: there was a marked increase in scores for emotionally s and venturesome and a decrease in scores for apprehensive and tense. The STAI score was statistically significantly lower in the study group|
