Effect of progressive muscle relaxation and autogenic training on psychological parameters of young girls
AUTHOR(S): Parmjit Kaur
The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of progressive muscle relaxation and autogenic training on psychological parameters of young girls. For the purpose of the present study, sixty (N=60) female subjects between the age group of 22 to 25 years were selected as subjects from Department of Physical Education (T), Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, Punjab (India). The subjects were further assigned into three groups: experimental (E; N = 60; (n1= 20; Progressive muscle relaxation training group) and (n2= 20; Autogenic training group) and (C; n3 = 20 Control group). Group E were subjected to 8-week of training. An Analysis of Covariance was used to determine significant differences for dependent variables within the three groups. When a significant difference among the groups was observed, a pair-wise comparison of the groups was done by using the Post-hoc test Least Significant Difference (LSD) to identify direction and significant differences between the groups. The level of significance was set at 0.05 in order to test the differences to be considered significant.
