Description

This study is on the efficacy of expressive writing interventions utilizing a randomized control study. The study will examine the effect of affect, insight and time orientation word usage on state anxiety levels across time through an expressive writing condition compared to a control writing condition. The data will be compiled and analyzed by the Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count analysis program. We expect that subjects who had higher usage of positive emotion, insight, and present time orientation words and lower use of negative emotion words will have lower levels of state anxiety over time compared to the control condition.
