Abstract

Four short-term interventions (relaxation instructions, cognitive imagery instructions, cognitive modeling, and vicarious modeling) were experienced by 105 first-trimester abortion patients, to determine their effects on abortion pain and self-efficacy in handling abortion pain, as measured by self-report. No significant differences were found among treatment group and controls. In fact, no significant increases were found among groups in the time the patients spent engaging in activities suggested by instructions.
