Description

This study will be based off of an on-going broader study examining the efficacy of Psychological First Aid (PFA) on anxiety, mood, resilience, and electrodermal activity compared to an expressive writing condition across time utilizing a randomized controlled trial. The purpose is to examine the differences in anxiety associated word usage across gender produced by the expressive writing task. With IRB approval obtained, we are collecting data from at least 100 subjects from the Behavioral Sciences Research Participation Pool. T-test analysis is expected to show a lower rate of anxiety word usage in men across time compared to women.
