Abstract

This article reports a Phase I feasibility trial of a guided imagery intervention in 20 healthy volunteers. Structural equivalence of a placebo control intervention of listening to audio book segments was evaluated. Content analysis of participant journals and exit interviews suggest suitability and acceptability of both the guided imagery and control interventions. Suggestions for their use in future clinical trials are discussed.
