Spirituality teaching program for emotional distress in adults
A randomized controlled trial - December 2006
To evaluate the efficacy of a home-based spirituality education program on mood disturbance in emotionally distressed patients. Results from this study suggest that a home study based, 8-week spirituality education program reduces total mood disturbance, particularly with regard to depression, tension, anger, and fatigue in the short term (up to 12 weeks). The program could be a resource for physicians who are helping emotionally distressed patients.
