Authors:  Brooks, J.S., Scarano, T.

Published:  Journal of Counselling and Development 1985; vol 64: pp 212-5

Methods: In a randomized, prospective study at the Denver Vietnam Veterans Outreach Program, the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program was compared with psychotherapy in the treatment of post-Vietnam adjustment. Nine dependent variables were measured both before and after a 3-month treatment period.

Results: The Transcendental Meditation treatment group improved significantly from pretest to posttest on eight variables; the therapy group showed no significant improvement on any measure. This study indicates that the Transcendental Meditation program is a useful therapeutic modality for the treatment of post-Vietnam adjustment problems.
