Effects of Positive Reframing and Paradoxical Directives in Counseling for Negative Emotions.
Kraft, Robert G.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v32 n4 p617-21 Oct 1985
Explored the effects of two paradoxical directives on negative emotions. Subjects received either positive reframing or no reframing statements and either paradoxical or nonparadoxical directives. Positive reframing produced greater reduction in negative emotions than no reframing though negative emotions were reduced in all conditions. The two directives did not differ in their effects.
