    Preventing sick-leave for sufferers of high stress-load and 'burn-out syndrome': A Pilot Study Combining Psychotherapy and the Flotation Tank2011In: International Journal of Psychology & Psychological Therapy / Revista Internacional de Psicologia y Terapia Psicologica, ISSN 1577-7057, E-ISSN 2340-2857, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 297-306Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present pilot study was to get information whether or not a 10-week combined treatment program with relaxation in a flotation tank and subsequent psychotherapeutic sessions, may be beneficial for persons suffering from high stress-load and 'burnout syndrome'. Four women and two men between the ages of 33 and 57 years old took part in the study. They were all diagnosed as on the brink for sick leave and suffering from 'burn-out syndrome' with symptoms of fatigue and problems organizing daily life. All clients participated in the 10-week treatment program consisting of flotation-REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique) treatments and conversational therapy with a psychologist. During the treatment program they continued their usual work, but were able to leave for 4 hours a week for participating in the treatments. The results revealed a significant decrease in degree of depression and anxiety and an increase in positive outlook on life. There was also a significant decrease in extent of painful areas and a significant decrease in their experienced worst pain-intensity. After the treatment period, they all continued to work, and there was no need for sick-leave. The conclusion is that this combined treatment program is promising and should be further evaluated in a randomized control trial.

    Psychotherapeutic Treatment in Combination with Relaxation in a Flotation Tank: Effects on "Burn-Out-Syndrome"2010In: Qualitative Report, ISSN 1052-0147, Vol. 15, no 5, p. 1243-1269Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this study was to investigate experiences gained from treatment combining relaxation in flotation tank with psychotherapy for sufferers from burn-out syndrome. Six people participated in aten week program. They were all interviewed; the data were analyzed using the Empirical Phenomenological Psychological method. Five themes emerged: (a) direct experiences during flotation, (b) effects due to the treatment sessions, (c) psychological transformation, (d)reflections about the treatment program, and (e) demanding and rewarding psychological process over time. All participants went through psychological transformations and improvements in quality oflife. At the end of the treatment program, all participants were able continue working full time. This combined program seems to be more therapeutically beneficial than flotation tank treatment alone

    Quality of Life with Flotation Therapy for a Person Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, Atypical Autism, PTSD, Anxiety and Depression2013In: Open Journal of Medical Psychology, ISSN 2165-9389, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 134-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this single-subject study was to report experiences from one and a half years of regular floating as described by a person with neuropsychiatric and mental health disorders. Floating, or Flotation Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique, involves relaxation and sensory deprivation by means of resting in a tank with highly salted and body-tempered water. The subject, a 24-year-old woman diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, atypical autism, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression floated regularly for one and a half years. Interviews regarding her experiences were analyzed and the main findings involved a subjective sense of improved quality of life, wellbeing and healthy behavior. There were no negative effects from treatment. Results suggest that floating may have beneficial therapeutic effects on mental health. Further studies that evaluate the efficacy and possible effects of floating with regard to mental health are needed.

    Does relaxation on a bed of nails (spike mat) induce beneficial effects?: A randomized controlled pilot study2011In: Alternative Medicine Studies, ISSN 2038-9477, E-ISSN 2038-9485, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 18-22Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Self-care treatments with bed of nails or spike mats have gained increased popularity world-wide; advertised as a method for pain reduction and wellbeing. Scientific studies regarding effects are still lacking. The aim of the present study was to investigate if daily relaxation on a spike mat for three weeks could induce beneficial effects.Design and methods: Participants were 36 individuals suffering from muscle tension pains in their back or/and neck. They were randomly assigned to a control group or an experimental group, who were treated with 15 minutes daily rest during three weeks on the spike mat.Results: Significant reduced experienced worst pain intensity was found. There were no effects on normal pain intensity, optimism, anxiety, depression, stress, energy, or sleep quality. Conclusion: The participants appreciated the treatment, but their enthusiastic verbal reports of experienced beneficial effects could not be verified in the statistical analyses. The reduction of worst pain may be explained by the gate-control theory, where competing stimuli applied over the affected area produce a pain reduction. It can also be an effect of placebo or the relaxation. More research on relaxation on a spike mat is needed before its possible effects can be confirmed. No negative effects were found in the present study, but it has to be remembered no studies investigating risks for treatment on spike mats exist.

    Experiences of Encounters with Ayahuasca-: 'the Vine of the Soul'2009In: Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, ISSN 0279-1072, Vol. 41, no 4, p. 309-315Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ayahuasca is a psychoactive brew used by the indigenous populations of the Amazon. The aim of this qualitative study was to gain insight into the experiences of western users of ayahuasca, as well as to ascertain the experienced meaning that participants felt by their participation. Twenty-five people from Northern Europe with experiences of group sessions with ayahuasca wrote anonymous descriptions of their experiences. The Empirical Phenomenological Psychological method was used for this analysis. The analysis resulted in 33 categories which were assembled into six general themes: (a) motivation and aim, (b) contractile frightening state (c) sudden transformation of the experience, (d) limitless expansive states with transcendental experiences, (f) reflections, and (g) changed worldview and new orientation to life. These themes provided a new structure, called the transcendental circle. Participants reported many positive psychological and physical improvements that indicate that ayahuasca could be of potential interest in the development of new medicines and therapies.

    Altered States of Consciousness and Mystical Experiences during Sensory Isolation in Flotation Tank: Is the Highly Sensitive Personality Variable of Importance?2010In: Imagination, Cognition and Personality, ISSN 0276-2366, Vol. 29, no 2, p. 135-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to investigate if the highly sensitive personality variable affects the occurrence of mystical experiences and degree of altered states of consciousness during sensory isolation in flotation-tank. Forty-eight persons (20 men, 28 females) were included. Background variables and the Highly Sensitive Personality Scale (HSP) were assessed. The independent variable was derived from this scale, where two groups were formed: low sensitivity and high sensitivity. The treatment lasted 45 minutes in the flotation tank. Dependent variables were assessed through scales measuring mystical experiences and degree of altered states of consciousness. The group with highly sensitive persons experienced significant more mystical experiences and higher degree of altered states of consciousness during the treatment compared to the other group. Also the highly sensitive persons exhibited more stress and anxiety at arrival, but no differences of depression and optimism were found between the groups

    Searching for placebo Effect: Do Sensitive Personality and Breathing Instructions Influence the Experience of Flotation-REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique)?2009In: Individual Differences Research, ISSN 1541-745X, E-ISSN 2169-3951, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 212-221Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the experiences and effects of 45 minutes relaxation in flotation tank were influenced by breathing instruction or by a sensitive personality. A sample of 48 persons, 20 men and 28 females (mean age 27.40 years) were randomized into two groups; with or without a breathing relaxation instruction. The second independent variable was sensitive personality (low, high) derived from the Highly Sensitive Person Scale. Dependent variables were Subjective Flotation Experience (Kjellgren, Sundequist, Norlander, & Archer, 2001) and detection threshold and upper threshold pain endurance. Main results indicated that experiences during flotation with regard to comfort and stress reduction were not influenced by instructions or by sensitive personality. These results are in line with earlier findings indicating that flotation-REST is not particularly affected by expectancies, earlier experiences, personality or surroundings in the laboratory

    Sensorimotor therapy: Physical and psychological regressions contribute to an improved kinesthetic and vestibular capacity in children and adolescents with motor difficulties and concentration problems2010In: Social behavior and personality, ISSN 0301-2212, E-ISSN 1179-6391, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 327-346Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our aim was to gain increased understanding of the effects of sensorimotor therapy on the physical and psychological development of children and young people when using the method Retraining for Balance. The records of 8 children who had completed the program were randomly selected from a cohort of 232 with sensorimotor difficulties and concentration problems. The participants, 7 boys and 1 girl, averaged 9 years of age. The Empirical Phenomenological Psychological method (the EPP-method, Gunmar Karlsson, 1995) was used for this analysis, which resulted in 29 categories which yielded 3 overarching themes: a) the introduction of sensorimotor exercises, b) regression to earlier sensorimotor and psychological behaviors, and c) transformations in which the sensorimotor and psychological skills of the children matured and developed. The themes formed the kinesthetic-vestibular developmental model illustrating how sensorimotor exercises push the therapy process forward while recurrent regressions are followed by positive developmental phases. The results of the study were generalized to the remaining 224 children in the cohort by comparing each individual’s records to the kinesthetic-vestibular model.

    The Effects of Alcohol Intake and Induced Frustration upon Art Vandalism2000In: Social Behavior and Personality, 28, 15-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study was designed to examine the interactive effects between

    alcohol-intake and frustration effects upon art vandalism. 100 subjects, 50 men and 50

    women, were randomly assigned to five experimental conditions (Control, Alcohol,

    Alcohol+Frustration, Frustration and Placebo) with 10 men 10 women in each group.

    Subjects were provided with the opportunity to scrawl on a picture of Adam and Eve (the

    AET test). AET was also evaluated on levels of "destruction", "aggression" and

    "sexuality". The results indicated that alcohol alone did not increase the degree of

    vandalism, but there was a significant increase in scores of scrawling-graffiti under the

    influence of alcohol+frustration. Female subjects performed graffiti-scrawling to a

    significantly greater extent than male subjects in all five groups.

    Involving clients and their relatives and friends in psychiatric care: Case managers' experiences of training in resource group assertive community training2012In: PsyCh Journal, ISSN 2046-0252, E-ISSN 2046-0260, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 15-27Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this project was to do a qualitative study of an integrated and flexible ACT model, the Resource Group Assertive Community Treatment (RACT), as seen from the perspective of case managers in training. The resource group normally consists of the client, the case manager and other available personnel in the medical and support areas, as well as family members. Nineteen theses were randomly chosen from a set of 80 theses written by a group of Swedish trainee case managers. The exams were conducted as case studies and concerned 19 clients with psychotic problems, 11 men and 8 women. “The Empirical Phenomenological Psychological Method” was used in the analysis, which generated five overarching themes: (a) the RACT program; (b) the resource group; (c) the empowerment of the client; (d) progress in treatment; and (e) the case manager. These together constituted a “therapeutic circle,” in which methods and tools used within the RACT made it possible for the resource group to empower the clients who, as a result, experienced progress with treatment, during which the case manager was the unifying and connecting link.

    Inebriation and Inspiration?: A Review of the Research on Alcohol and Creativity1999In: Journal of Creative Behavior, 33, 7-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a conception that a uniquely positive correlation prevails between the

    intake of alcohol and creativity, but only a few experimental studies address this subject.

    Existing studies together with recent experiments are reviewed. This later series of

    experiments explored whether or not moderate alcohol intoxication (1.0 ml of 100%

    alcohol/kg body weight) facilitated different phases of the creative process, i.e.

    preparation, incubation, illumination, verification and restitution. A hypothesis is derived

    which postulates that modest alcohol consumption inhibits aspects of creativity based

    mainly on the secondary process (preparation, certain parts of illumination, and

    verification), and disinhibits those based mainly on the primary process (incubation,

    certain parts of illumination, and restitution)

    Effects of Flotation REST on Creative Problem Solving and Originality1998In: Journal of Environmental Psychology, 18, 399-408Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the present study was to explore whether or not flotation REST facilitates the creative problem-solving ability and originality. Sample 1 had 40 subjects, 20 men and 20 women, whom were randomly assigned in equal numbers to either a non-REST group (armchair-sitting) or to a floating REST group. Both groups worked on a "Chain Puzzle" for 5 minutes and were then interrupted with 45 minutes sitting or floating. Then the subjects were given the task of continuing with the creative problem-solving test. Sample 2 had 54 subjects, 27 men and 27 women, whom were randomly assigned in equal numbers to either a "non-REST" (armchair-sitting), a "dry-REST" group (lying on a couch in a dark room) and a "flotation-REST" group. Then the groups had to fill in a couple of paper-and-pen tests giving scores on fluency, obvious answers, original answers, elegance and deductive thinking. The results (impaired creative solving ability and higher originality for the floating group) were interpreted as a indication of a cognitive function where the primary process still dominates over the secondary process

    Primary Process in Competitive Archery Performance: Effects of Flotation REST1999In: Journal of Applied Sport Psychology, 11, 194-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether or nor the floating form of Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique (REST) may be exploited within the field of competitive archery to reinforce primary process (inner-directed) orientation and thereby enhance the quality of coaching and training. Floatation REST consists of a procedure whereby an individual is immersed in a water-tank filled with saltwater of an extremely high salt concentration. The experiment was performed over the course of two weekends with a six-week interval in-between. Twenty participating archers, thirteen male and seven female, were recruited. The between-group factor was "adjudged skill". The within-group factor was provided by an Armchair condition in which the participants sat in an armchair for 45 min after which they were required to shoot four salvo series of three shots each, as a comparison to the Flotation-Rest condition whereby the participants were required to lie in a floating-tank for 45 min just prior to shooting. Results indicated that: (a) the participants experienced less perceived exertion during marksmanship in the floating condition, (b) the elite archers performed more consistently in the Flotation-REST condition, (c) the least and most proficient archers had lower muscle tension in the Extensor Digitorum in the Flotation REST condition
