Cardiometric support of visual kinetic modeling
* Corresponding author
The article presents an experimental confirmation of the validity of the hypothesis that there are optimal combinations of such VKM varieties as GSM, KS and MAC. The results of the performed cardiometric measurements and the variants of subjective self-reports made by the examinees are described herein, which have shown that such optimal combinations include tasks, where and when the clients, acting as patients, first work with kinetic sand and only thereupon use metaphorical associative cards, followed by game sand modeling. In addition, the data obtained have demonstrated that the least comfortable work sequences include options that first use the techniques of game sand modeling, and then as those the varieties of VKM as KS and MAC. In addition, it has been found that the cardiometric support of visual kinetic modeling significantly increases the confidence therein by all its participants. It has been shown that the cardiometric support also successfully serves as an element of bio-feedback and contributes to a meaningful, substantive, dialogue between the client and the psychotherapist, aimed at increasing the level of awareness of what is happening and raising the effectiveness of the therapeutic process.
