Project description

There are many advocates for therapeutic writing and a considerable amount of research conducted in groups of patients with physical and mental health issues. However, it is currently unclear whether therapeutic writing does improve physical or mental health, and if it does, under which circumstances and in which types of patients. Also, it is currently unclear whether this is a cost-effective intervention.
