Zusammenfassung: 
A stress management training for ambulant psychosomatic patients has been developed. Essential parts of the intervention are meditative body relaxation (Kum Nye) and meditative cognitive restructuring. The training has been applied to psychosomatic patients with various kinds of diagnosis in a total of 14 group sessions. The following indicators of therapy success have been assessed: Positive and negative self-communication, positive and negative emotionality, depression, bodily complaints, number of days with bodily complaints and 12 coping scales. Results are reported in agglomerated single case judgements. In the intervention group 55 % of the participants showed improvements vs. 14 % in the waiting-list-control group. The significant results are appraised as clinically not fully satisfying; possible improvements of the intervention are discussed. Hints to a contraindication with abdominal complaints are given.
