Why We Are Doing This Study


What is “visual healing”?

Anecdotal evidence from Louie Schwartzberg’s Gratitude Revealed project suggests watching two weeks of daily short films about gratitude correlates with improvements in well-being. Advanced research in areas of health and wellness show positive effects on health outcomes, including shorter length of stay in hospital, increased pain tolerance and decreased anxiety.

In this breakthrough study, participants are asked to complete the 14-item Warwick Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale at the onset of their involvement and watch a unique short film each day ranging from 2-7 minutes in length. These films explore what gratitude is, why it's important, and what we can do to live more gracious lives. After two weeks, participants are once again asked to complete the Warwick Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale.
