Purpose: This study aimed to examine the effects of meditation programs on stress responses, anxiety and self-esteem in psychiatric patients. After the meditation treatment, the experimental group will report a higher degree of decreased Symptoms of Stress(SOS) scores than the control group. The experimental group will report a higher degree of decreased Beck Anxiety Inventory(BAI) scores than the control group. In addition, the experimental group will report a higher degree of increased Rosenberg scale scores than the control group. Methods: Seventeen patients were recruited and were treated with 6 sessions of a meditation program as well as 17 sex-matched control patients. Stress responses were measured using SOS and all subjects performed BAI, the Rosenberg scale and the Visual Analogue Scale. Results: Compared with the control patients, patients receiving meditation treatment did not show significant reduction in scores of SOS(U = 137.500, p = .812), BAI(U = 126.500, p = .540) or SOS subscales. There was no significant increase of self-esteem(U = 112.500, p = .274) in the meditation treatment group. Conclusion: This study suggests that meditation programs may be therapeutic by reducing stress responses including psychological and physiological aspects even though there was no statistical significance.
