The autonomic nervous activity of hostile acting
Title of the conference
14th Congress of the Swiss Psychological Society : The future of psychology
Oral presentation to the symposium «The good, the bad, and the ugly: Influences of resources and risk factors on psychobiological health »
The present talk aims to examine the heart-rate variability (HRV) indexes of two populations known to be particularly sensitive to stress condition: violent offenders and intellectually impaired patients. For both, difficulties in managing stressful and emotional events could lead to unpredictable and hostile acting. Results in favour of specific HRV baseline patterns and emotional control will be developed, as the proposition of precursors of agitation in the physiological fluctuations preceding high tensed episodes. The improvement offered by coherent breathing trainings will be discussed for both groups.
