EDA RELAXATION TRAINING

Model 73102

EDA Relaxation Training
 
   
 

DETAILS

With the aid of feedback on skin conductivity the client learns to consciously control the habitual level of arousal and the level of sympathetic nervous system activity.

Internal tension results in increased activity of the sweat glands and hence in a higher skin conductance level (electrodermal activity or EDA). When the arousal level changes, the skin conductance reaction occurs almost immediately (within 0.6 – 6.0 seconds). It is therefore an excellent indicator of the relationship between physical and emotional processes.

FEEDBACK TYPES

  • Face: The client's attempts to become increasingly more relaxed make the face on the screen smile.
  • Morphing: For example, a lowering of the skin conductance level can make a caterpillar turn into a butterfly.
  • Depiction for Children: Pictures (a dog, clown etc.) respond to a change in skin conductance by changing their position.
  • Jigsaw Puzzle: A lowering of the skin conductance level adds missing pieces to a jigsaw puzzle.

APPLICATIONS

  • Relaxation training
  • Stress reduction

SESSION LENGTH

15 minutes

EVALUATION

The skin conductance chart (yellow) shows that the client has achieved the direct training goal. The skin conductance level has fallen substantially; the general level of activity has been reduced.

The training has also had an indirect effect on physical relaxation – identifiable from the increase in finger temperature (red). In addition, the pulse volume amplitude (purple) has increased, indicating relaxation of the cardiovascular system.
