Anxiety is an issue in university students. It can lead to a decrease in academic performance which can affect the student’s university experience and potentially future career. Many interventions have been documented in the literature to reduce anxiety. Personal Resilience™ techniques use positive emotion refocusing and restructuring with biofeedback in terms of heart rate variability to reduce anxiety and have been found to be effective in university students. The aim of this project was to evaluate if Personal Resilience™ techniques are effective in reducing anxiety in university students who make an appointment through student health clinic and counseling services at a university in the Midwest. The results have clinical and statistical significance. This provides evidence that the Personal Resilience™ techniques can reduce anxiety in university students.
