Providing Relaxation Training to Cancer Chemotherapy Patients: A Comparison of Three Delivery Techniques.
Carey, Michael P.; Burish, Thomas G.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n5 p732-37 Oct 1987
Evaluated effectiveness of three strategies for delivering relaxation training to cancer chemotherapy patients who were experiencing treatment-related side effects. Professionally, as opposed to paraprofessionally, administered or audiotaped progressive muscle-relaxation training and guided relaxation imagery reduced emotional distress and physiological arousal and increased food intake in chemotherapy patients, reducing symptoms more than did the standard treatment.
