Translating self-affirmation exercises into clinical activities may be useful for practitioners. The present study tested the effects of self-affirming using Q-sort vs. essay writing tasks. The Q-sort reduced fear and increased state self-esteem, but did not reduce self-stigma. Q-sorts may be useful clinical activities for bolstering self-worth.
