|Title:||Writing about Satisfaction Processes Increases Well-Being||Contributor(s):||Bhullar, Navjot (author) ; Schutte, Nicola (author) ; Malouff, John M (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/9764||Abstract:||This study explored the effect of expressive writing about satisfaction experiences on well-being. Participants in the experimental condition (n = 46) wrote about meaningful activities that provide them with an intense sense of enjoyment and pleasure and how satisfaction derived from such activities can be increased. The control group participants (n = 44) wrote about their daily activities. The results showed that writing about satisfaction experiences led to significantly higher levels of well-being, including more life satisfaction, positive affect, psychological well-being, and social well-being and less depression, anxiety and stress.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Individual Differences Research, 9(1), p. 22-32||Publisher:||Individual Differences Association||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1541-745X||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||929999 Health not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.idr-journal.com/||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 510
