Stress Management for Chronic Headaches
Emotional Awareness and Expression Training and Relaxation Training for People With Chronic Headaches

This interventional, randomized controlled study seeks to test the effects of a novel emotional awareness and expression intervention against relaxation training or no intervention for college students with chronic headaches. These two interventions are conceptually quite distinct, as the former seeks to activate and process anger, whereas the latter, more commonly used technique, seeks to suppress or avoid it.
