Divorce healing and moving on in the same sentence is a difficult combination that needs to be worked at. Have you been deeply wounded by your ex-spouse during or before divorce? Does s/he continue to engage in hurtful behaviour even though you are no longer living under the same roof? Are you finding it difficult to move beyond feelings of anger, bitterness, and sadness? If so, you are not alone. Many individuals who have been wronged by their ex-spouse find it difficult to get beyond their painful experiences. One approach that can help you along the path toward emotional healing is journaling.
Have you ever tried journaling during difficult times in your life? Research has found that journaling can have benefits such as lowering depressive symptoms following traumatic life events (Gortner, Rude, & Pennebaker, 2006).
A group of researchers at Skidmore College are recruiting participants for an exciting new study on how journaling relates to adjustment after divorce. If you are divorced or going through a divorce, and can think of at least one action taken by your ex that was hurtful or upsetting in some way, you are eligible to participate.
The study involves completing two online surveys and a brief journaling assignment, twice a week for three weeks. The first 100 participants to respond will receive up to $25 in gift certificates to Amazon.com. All responses are confidential.
