Previous research suggests that narrating an experience may lead to lower levels of the predominant emotion associated with the event. Adolescents, ages 8-17, were asked to think of a recent event in their life in which they felt angry at another person. We found that sadness and fear intensity does not necessarily become stronger than feelings of anger post-narration, but that feelings of anger lessen to an extent that allows already-present feelings of sadness and fear to be acknowledged.
