guided imagery

  1. Does anyone know of a good tape of this nature? I am in a class that requires me to buy or rent one and do research on the effect it may or may not have on a person's stress level. I have done guided imagery with patients but have never purchased on......

    Hmmmmmmmmmm. Need some psyc nurses here LOL.

    I have a script (you'd have to make your own tape) -- pm me if you'd like a copy.

    I've got a book called "Stress Management, a comprehensive guide to wellness," by Edward A. Charlesworth and Ronald G. Nathan. There's a script there, too, for guided imagery, and also an extensive list of recordings in the appendix.

    If that doesn't help, check out your local library. There's also some interesting VCR imagery tapes, with open-eyes sensory input to achieve the same thing.

    Thanks I was being lazy and hoping to not have to make one LOL. I do have a script but I keep laughing while I am trying to do it LOL. Can't help it when I know I am recording myself I start this silly laughing and I stumble on my words. I do the same thing when I record my phone answering machine. Thanks rabbitt and youda........

    Yeah, I know what you mean! Many years ago I tried to make my own tape and sure couldn't RELAX while I was listening to it!

    I faintly remember a freebie relaxation tape from a drug company. It was by a psychiatrist called Cosmo Hallstrom.
