Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET): A Study Treatment for People Living with Migraine

(IRB#: IRB_00164970)

Migraine headaches are a severe health problem. Though there is current medication and ways to help people with migraine, most still have issues. A persons level of stress and past traumatic experiences may cause migraine. Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET) is a new way to help people manage emotions. We want to know how effective EAET is at reducing migraine. The information we gain may aid future patients.
