Hello again.

I just read about a new, NIH-funded study that begins this month, right here in Northeast Ohio, by a terrific agency called FrontLine, which serves the deinstitutionalized mentally ill, homeless, traumatized and suicidal people of Cleveland and surroundings. They do very hard work and they do it really well.  

The study investigates the effectiveness of guided imagery, listened to for 10 minutes, 3 times a week, for 4 weeks, during part of lunch hour, for reducing anxiety, stress, burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma in 126 staff people; and to see if they continue to listen to it after the study is over.  

The full description is here: http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT02191345.  We’re going to follow this study with great interest to see how it goes.  My biggest worry is that these service staff, the minute they feel crunched (which is all the time), will just work through their lunch hour without taking the 10 minutes to listen.
