Överskrift Alleviating posttraumatic stress in children following Hurricane Andrew
Beskrivning Examined whether massage therapy might reduce the anxiety and depression levels of children as measured by behavioral observations, their drawings, and their cortisol levels. 60 1st-5th graders who showed classroom behavior problems following Hurricane Andrew were randomly assigned to a massage therapy (MT) or a video attention (VA) group. Scores on the Posttraumatic Stress Disorer Index suggest the Ss were experiencing severe posttraumatic stress. Ss whoreceived MT reported being happier and less anxious and had lower salivary cortisol levels after the therapy than VA Ss. The MT group showed more sustained changes as manifested by lower scores for anxiety, depression, and self-drawings. MT Ss were also observed to be more relaxed.
