Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Injured students-athletes took part in a randomized controlled trial to test whether written disclosure could reduce psychological distress and improve injury mobility. Writing took place alongside prescribed physical rehabilitation and consisted of three 20-minute writing sessions, once a week for three consecutive weeks. Participants in the experimental injury-writing group (n = 25)
followed a structured form of written disclosure, called the guided disclosure protocol (GDP).
