Evaluation of Multiple Component Relaxation Training with Developmentally Disabled Persons.
Calamari, John E.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v8 n1 p55-70 1987
A specific progressive muscle relaxation training procedure was combined with auditory electromyographic (EMG) biofeedback, modeling, and reinforcement procedures to teach relaxation skills to 32 mentally retarded adults. The procedure was effective in reducing subjects' EMG levels and activity levels. Intellectual and adaptive behavior levels failed to predict success in treatment. (Author/JW)
