Abstract [en]

Several studies have shown positive results for group treatments of a wide range of physical and psychological diseases. In a randomised study the effect of two stress management methods were evaluated. A treatment with cognitive behavioural approach called Strategical Resource use (SRA) was compared with Kundalini yoga. 33 subjects from a large Swedish company were divided into four groups. One all female and one mixed group were introduced to each method. After the treatment, the subjects of both methods had improved their values on both subjectively rated and physiologically measured variables significantly, e.g. perceived stress, stress behaviour, anger, exhaustion, quality of life, blood pressure and pulse. The yoga group had significantly decreased norepinephrine values. The SRA group’s decrease on epinephrine was approaching significancy. No significant difference was found between the two methods. The conclusion is that both methods have an effect on physiological as well as psychological aspects of stress.
