Abstract

This research study examines the potential use of ASMR type audiovisual content as an easy to access, cheap and effective supplementary therapy, in order to manage depression and GAD. Two test films were developed to analyse the psychological impact of audiovisual practice on a subject, one an ASMR featured short film and the second a clip from the existing practice of audiovisual entrainment. Participants subjective scores of mood and relaxation were measured, by scoring them pre and post video. This study demonstrates that generally speaking, audio-visual media does has a positive impact on individuals, with 50% of participants with a mental health diagnosis reporting their mood improved.
