ICU Experience Among Family Members of ICU Patients

The ICU is a stressful and challenging place for patients and their families. Many family members experience anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder during and after their ICU experience. The investigators are studying post-traumatic growth in this study. Post-traumatic growth (PTG) is a set of positive changes that occurs after a challenging or difficult life experience. This study investigates the effects of expressive writing on positive changes that occur after a difficult experience. PTG will be compared between the intervention group receiving the expressive writing intervention and the control group (non-expressive or fact based writing).
