The Effects of Relaxation Training with Cognitive or Nondirective Therapy and the Role of Relaxation-Induced Anxiety in the Treatment of Generalized Anxiety.
Borkovec, T. D.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n6 p883-88 Dec 1987
Provided 30 volunteers with generalized anxiety disorder with training in progressive muscle relaxation. Clients were also given cognitive or nondirective therapy. All showed substantial reductions in anxiety measured by psychiatric assessor ratings, questionnaires, and daily self-monitoring. Relaxation plus cognitive therapy produced significantly greater improvement than relaxation plus nondirective therapy. Relaxation-induced anxiety was significantly related to improvement.
