  • Consistent with the literature suggests that physical health supports emotional and cognitive health, we measured resting heart rate and a physiological index of flexible stress response called Heart Rate Variability (HRV). Resting heart rate is also a reliable index of emotional stress.

    • 1. A Bio-Psycho-Social Assessmentof an Adjunctive Intervention for Youth in Alternative Schools Rebekah Conway Roulier, Ed.M. Doc Wayne
    • 2. Doc Wayne• Doc Wayne is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that connects with youth through sports, utilizing our sports-based therapeutic curriculum, do the good® (DtG). o DW Therapeutic Sports Program (League) o Billable Group Therapy (Chalk Talk) o Leadership Program (Global Life Empowerment) o Training Program
    • 3. Sport & TherapySport-based intervention which incorporates principles from: o Trauma-informed care o Positive youth development o Trauma-based components model (Attachment, Regulation and Competency Framework) o Stabilization model (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) o Attachment-based interaction model (Parent-Child Interaction Therapy)
    • 4. Evaluation• Method: self-report, computerized games which assessed behavior, and physiological measurement• Participants: 53 (male and female)• Ages: 12-19 (serve ages 12-22)• Population: League and Chalk Talk participants compared to control group. o Victims of abuse and/or neglect o Sexually exploited and trafficked o Impoverished/underserved o Truant o Mentally ill (specifically survivors of complex trauma) o Differently-abled
    • 5. Alarming Descriptors• Social Cognition - “Reading the Mind in the Eyes Task.” o Healthy youth 70%. o Adults on the autistic spectrum 50%. o Doc Wayne youth 37% of faces (SD = 15%, Range = 0 to 75%).• Physiology and Stress o Average resting heart rate for youth in this age group is 60-80 beats per minute (bpm). o The majority of youth (65%) had elevated resting heart rates, above 80 bpm (M = 85, SD = 15). o Five participants had extremely elevated resting HR, over 100 bpm. o May be reflective of psychological stress, poor cardiovascular health, or medication status.

    • 8. Outcome Categories• Category A: Outcomes which change quickly, and continue to develop over time. • Shutting Down • Personal Distress • Social Cognition • Heart Rate Variability• Category B: Outcomes which happen quickly, and “top out” with continued participation. • Reappraisal • Perspective-taking • Heart Rate• Category C: Outcomes which take time to emerge. • Seeking Support • Career Goals
    • 9. Conclusion• Effect sizes are consistent with the effect sizes of individual psychotherapies tested using Randomized Clinical Trials. o Effect size – the size of the difference between two groups. Is the magnitude of the differences between two groups clinically meaningful? o Most psychotherapy studies yield an effect size of .3.• Sport can be therapeutic and a form of therapy.
