Project description

Exploring the role of attentional scope in rumination and some of its key correlates (e.g. negative affect, stress recovery), our research forms a test of the attentional scope model of rumination in depression. Using cross-sectional, prospective (e.g. rumination induction) and experimental studies (cfr. Cognitive Bias Modification), we aim to provide direct therapeutic targets.
