Transcript of The Effect of Relaxation music listening on Sleep Quality in
Kira Vibe Jespersen & Peter Vuust
Main Purposes of the Study
1. Listening to relaxation music can improve quality of sleep in traumatized refugees with sleep problems.
2. Improvement of sleep quality will reduce trauma symptoms and improve well-being.
1. Sleep Quality
2. Trauma symptoms
Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD-8)
"How do you feel?" Questionnaire (HDYF)
Music Composed for Relaxation
Refugees- 15 participants
From mostly middle eastern countries that moved to Denmark
All of them are suffering from PTSD causing less than adequate sleep
Each participant in the Intervention group was given a pillow that had speakers above and on both sides of the participants head. Music was played through the speakers that was meant to be relaxing.
Each participant in the Control group was given a normal pillow.
1. Global sleep quality from pre to post-intervention showed improvement in the music group.
2. Sleep quality improved and so then well-being improved in the music group.
3. Sleep latency and sleep disturbances improved as well in music group.
4. No change in trauma symptoms.
Why is this important?
This study was the first of its kind to use refugees in a sleep related study.
This was a pilot study so they laid out how the hypothesis could be looked at in different ways to improve upon the results from this article.
