James W. Pennebaker is the Regents Centennial Professor of Liberal Arts in the Psychology Department at the University of Texas at Austin, where he received his Ph.D. in 1977. He has been on the faculty at the University of Virginia, Southern Methodist University, and, since 1997, The University of Texas. His earlier work explored the links between traumatic experiences, expressive writing, and physical and mental health. His studies found that physical health and work performance can improve by simple writing and/or talking exercises. His most recent research focuses on the nature of language in the real world. The words people can be powerful reflections of their personality and social worlds. Author or editor of 10 books and over 250 articles, Pennebaker has received numerous awards and honors.
