Publisher Description

In addition to lectures and discussions on mental disorders, this abnormal psychology course incorporated an overview of the literature on the therapeutic value of expressive writing. Students read, discussed, and wrote about four full-length autobiographies related to mental illness and rated each on five dimensions: perceived therapeutic value to the author, degree to which the book increased understanding of mental illness, degree to which the book increased understanding of the personal experience of mental illness, enjoyment of the book, and likelihood of recommending the book. Strong associations emerged between perceived therapeutic value to the author and the other ratings. Books rated highest in terms of perceived therapeutic benefit to the author were also the books from which students perceived learning the most.
