dc.description.abstract This study investigated the possibility that biopsychosocial techniques offer an added dimension to the biobehavioral approach to the treatment of hypertension by taking into account the familial systemic variables which may contribute to maintaining hypertension. The biopsychosocial techniques may play a significant adjunctive role in permitting control of blood pressure to be maintained without the side-effects seen with the chronic use of medication. An exploratory study was conducted in which a single-subject, AB design was utilized in order to determine whether the added component of a systemically based family associated with the technological nature of the intervention. It is therefore quite clear that the data would be indicative of a non-biofeedback, but relaxation, health information and systemic family intervention to be effective in the treatment of hypertension. en
