Backed by research at every step

We could not hold an honest commitment to effectiveness without keeping a constant eye on the academic literature in both the psychology, neuroscience, wellness, and clinical therapy domains. The model Life and Lingo exists on is anchored by three pillars with demonstrated positive outcomes. 

Affect Labeling

In simple terms, affect labeling refers to naming and describing feelings. Research over the last decade has highlighted a neurocognitive pathway that helps explain why putting feelings into words - and developing broad emotion vocabularies - allows us to manage negative emotional experiences, and fine-tune regulation of all experiences.


Creative Writing

While written forms of human communication have been around for nearly as long as our species has existed, its benefits and specific applications in the emotional wellness and therapy spaces are still emerging. Research has shown that various writing forms produce benefits such as greater comfort with vulnerability, stronger connections to clinical providers, and heightened emotional perceptiveness.

Emotion Identification

Academic literature has shown that many mental disorders are the result of maladapted emotion identification processes, including mood monitoring, interception, and labeling (i.e., emotion vocabularies). Hindered identification processes can lead to emotion suppression, avoidance, or distress as a result of emotion-articulation gaps. While addressing all identification components in one tool is challenging, we seek to bring awareness to each as much as possible.
