Management summary Research study: A multi-country test of brief reappraisal interventions on emotions during the COVID-19 pandemic
Study was conceptualized and carried out by the Psychological Science Accelerator with more than 400 authors who translated, adapted and tested intervention for reduction of negative emotions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. The study was pre-registered and data were collected using randomized, experimental design (N = 21,644). The intervention was effective across cultures and it could be easily adapted into an organizational setting. Although this study was not primarily aimed at managerial practice or theory, the reappraisal intervention presents an interesting tool that might help alleviate problems associated with mental health in work environments.
