|a P values indicate statistical significance of differences between the before and after periods within each group.|
b Overall P values represent the statistical significance of differences between the control and intervention groups with respect to change over time. P values were computed using a mixed factorial ANOVA followed by pairwise comparisons. Time (pre and post) served as the within-subjects factor and group (control and taping) served as the between-subjects factor.
