Description

This study will examine the efficacy of Psychological First Aid (PFA) on anxiety, mood, and self-esteem compared to an expressive writing condition across time utilizing a treatment and control group. Research has indicated that expressive writing is thought to be beneficial by decreasing inhibitions, but what is still unknown is how the use of self-esteem words can mediate the changes in anxiety levels. The purpose of this study is to examine the differences in anxiety levels across time with the number of self-esteem related words used through an expressive writing task, and how usage of self-esteem words mediates this effect.
