👉🏻 ”Globally, psychological health problems are currently among the most serious public health challenges. Adolescent girls suffer from internalizing problems, such as somatic symptoms and mental health problems, at higher rates than in decades.
This thesis highlights health effects and experiences from a randomized controlled intervention trial. The intervention comprised dance with focus on enjoyment twice weekly for 8 months. Recruitment was conducted in collaboration with school health services. The dance group showed increased self-rated health scores, and exhibited a decrease in somatic symptoms, emotional distress and use of medication compared to the control group.
The central understanding of the adolescent girls’ experiences was that the dance intervention increased self-trust and enriched personal resources. A non-judgmental atmosphere and a supportive togetherness were shown to be important for participation.
The intervention was considered to be cost- effective due to decreased number of school nurse visits and an increase in quality of life. .
The results of this thesis may provide practical information for school health care staff and caregivers in designing future interventions.” ————————————————————— #dansförhälsa #danceintervention #ickefarmakologiskainsatser #mindbody #ungdomshälsa #psykiskhälsa #thesis #avhandling
