(Music-therapy in A. T.)
Journal/Book: International Journal of Sport Psychology. 1975; 6: 219-222.
Abstract: Describes research with 50 sharpshooters which associated autogenic training with music therapy. The experience gave positive results both in the attainment of a state of intense relaxation and in the catharsis of neurotic unconscious emotions. The presence of therapists proved necessary to activate psychodynamic processes which could not be set in motion by taped music.
