Training seminar for employees “Improving the hardiness and healthy lifestyle practices” (in Russian)

2023. Vol. 13. No. 3. P. 158–181 [issue contents]
Purpose. Development and testing of a resilience training program with healthy lifestyle practices in groups of workers exposed to harmful occupational factors aimed at increasing resistance to negative social effects and motivation for healthy behavior. Design. 12 participants from different professions took part in the testing of the developed training seminar program “Improving hardiness with healthy lifestyle practices”, aimed at teaching self-help techniques in stressful situations. For the background and final psychodiagnostics of the indicators of the professional and personal spheres of the seminar participants, diagnostic tools were used, which included standard tests and questionnaires: the “Hardiness” test; the DAP questionnaire (Differentiated Assessment of Performance); the “Well-being — Activity — Mood” questionnaire; the Spielberger — Khanin technique. In parallel, anthropometric data was measured (weight, height, waist size, blood pressure, pulse rate, oxygen saturation). The dynamicsof the state of autonomic neurohumoral regulation of the training participants was assessed by theparameters of heart rate variability (HRV) using an electrocardiograph “VNS-Rhythm” and software“Poly-Spectrum-Rhythm” (“Neurosoft”, Russia). The input (background) and final (after the end of theseminar) values of standard temporal and spectral HRV indicators characterizing the activity of the parasympathetic, sympathetic and humoral-metabolic links of heart rate regulation were recorded (Bayevsky, 2002). The results were processed statistically with the calculation of the Wilcoxon T-testand the Spearman coefficient. Results. Comparative analysis revealed positive dynamics of a numberof indicators of professional and personal spheres among the participants of the training seminar, an increase in functional reserves and a decrease in the degree of tension of regulatory systems, a correlation between the indicator “Well-being” and the relative value of the power of high-frequency waves of the HRV spectrum. Implications for practice. When developing comprehensive health-saving technologies in the workplace, it is necessary to apply a training form of training in health-saving practices to increase hardiness.
