Description

Research has shown that Psychological First Aid (PFA) helps to promote resilience in individuals affected by traumatic events (Everly, 2012). The purpose of this study is to examine differences in resilience levels between gender over time by comparing PFA with a Social Acknowledgment condition. The Response to Stressful Events Scale is used to assess resilience (Johnson et al. 2011). Using a mixed between-within subjects ANOVA, it is hypothesized that there will be a significant interaction between time and gender. Women will exhibit increasing resilience levels over time, however, men will exhibit no change.
