The study found that the participants from booth groups that were exposed to the intervention had significantly decreased their estimates regarding perceived stress. The school counselors also had decreased their estimates regarding burn-out. Both groups were highly motivated to conduct the intervention. However, the school counselors estimated higher satisfaction with the intervention than the school principals. The study contributes to research on Expressive writing and psychotherapeutic interventions regarding perceived stress and burn-out. Further research and follow-ups is needed to examine the persistence of the results and the ability to replicate the study. (Less)
