Promoting Resilience After Stroke in Dyads
“Testing a Positive Psychology-based Intervention for Couples Coping With Stroke”
This study aims to pilot test an 8-week, self-administered dyadic (couples-based) positive psychology intervention for couples coping with stroke using a randomized, waitlist control design. Mood and well-being will be assessed pre- and post-intervention, and at 3-month follow-up. It is expected that both partners will demonstrate improvement in mood and well-being.
