Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of autosuggestive relaxation on dislocated workers. Workers' stress was measured by the Multiple Affect Adjective Check List-Revised measuring anxiety, depression, hostility, and positive affect, and by the Stress Management Questionnaire measuring somatic stress. Subjects in the treatment group (n = 16) scored significantly (p < .05) lower than control group subjects (n = 9) on posttest scores for anxiety and dysphoria. These findings suggest that autosuggestion may ameliorate the distress resulting from job loss. No significant differences were found between groups for depression, hostility, positive affect, or somatic stress. A positive correlation was found between marital status of main breadwinners and somatic stress; married subjects had more somatic stress than unmarried subjects. The number of children subjects had showed an inverse relationship with posttest positive affect scores and with how good subjects were feeling measured on a 1-10 scale (p < .05).
