Abstract:
A large number of publications have previously shown spirituality/religiosity to crucially boosting the mental resilience and curing the psychiatric illness. Religiosity and spirituality can be defined broadly as any feelings, thoughts, experiences, and behaviors that arise from a search for the ―sacred‖, with the former implying group or social practices and doctrines and the latter tending to refer to personal experiences and beliefs. The present study aimed to develop a novel spiritual group psychotherapy based on the Four True Paths; Love, Wisdom, Self-reflection, and Progress, and to evaluate the efficacy in a randomized controlled trial with 26 Japanese out-patients suffering from mood disorders or neurotic, stress-related, and somatoform disorders. The treatment participants (n=14) at 3-6 people per group took part in five 90-minutes sessions at one-week intervals, while the delayed-treatment control patients (n=12) only received a usual care including medication. Their mental status was assessed before and after the intervention by the Profile of Mood States and the Positive Negative Affect Schedule scale. We found that the depressive symptom was significantly improved in the trial group, compared with the control group. In conclusion, the currently developed group psychotherapy might have an unyielding effectiveness on the depressive symptom, which further needs to be confirmed by a large randomized controlled trial.
