Cardiometric confirmations of psychotherapeutic effectiveness of psychological sand modeling
* Corresponding author
The article presents experimental confirmations of the validity of the hypothesis that the theoretical construct “subpersonality”, in addition to the psychological content, really reflects the physiological preparation of a person to provide a certain type of response. It is shown that the activation of one subpersonality instead of another one can be accompanied by significant changes in the heart rate variability, which has been estimated using the Baevsky stress index (SI). The article presents some experimental data demonstrating the possibility of using the Baevsky stress index (SI) to evaluate the effectiveness of Sandplay therapy and sand modeling as psychocorrective and training methods, ranking the elements used in them according to the strength and nature of the emotional impact on a person.
