Numerous researchers have elicited positive relationships between discrete psychotherapies and the mental health of parents of differently abled children, but there exists a significant paucity on integrated therapeutic interventions over their mental health. In this present study the efficacy of an integrated intervention program comprised of Dhyana (non-directive meditation) and Jacobson Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy (JPMRT) on anxiety and thought control of parents of differently abled children by intellectual has been examined. The study targeted 30
parents of intellectual differently abled children, 15 parents for pre – post experiment group and 15 parents for control group. Both groups were assessed before and after intervention by Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) and Thought Control Questionnaire (TCQ). Intervention program was conducted daily one hour for five days per week for one month. The intervention program was carried only on experimental group. The data was statistically analyzed by paired t-test for the assessment of efficacy of therapy and F- test for the homogeneity of experimental and control groups. The result reveals that the intervention program consisted of Dhyana (non- directive meditation) and Jacobson Progressive Muscle Relaxation Therapy (JPMRT) was significantly effective on reducing anxiety features and improve thought control of parents of differently abled children by intellectual.
