Brief Summary:
The PI developed the Image Narrative Intervention (INI) based on her research using visual images in which she found that visual images and narratives support trauma survivors in narrating their experiences and in meaning making. The proposed study is the first study to test the therapeutic effect of the INI program. We propose to assess, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the feasibility and preliminary effect of the INI through a pilot randomized control trial (RCT) design with a wait list control.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Depression, Anxiety Behavioral: Image Narrative Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

AIM 1. To understand the unique experiences of emerging adult college students during the Covid-19 pandemic (especially around the themes of the self, relationships with others, and the future).

AIM 2. To evaluate the feasibility of the INI for emerging adult college students during the Covid-19 pandemic, both quantitatively and qualitatively.

AIM 3. To evaluate the preliminary efficacy of the INI on distress, PTG, Quality of Life and Meaning-Making.
