The more you judge the worse you feel. A judgemental attitude towards one's inner experience predicts depression and anxiety

Barbara Barcaccia, Roberto Baiocco, Andrea Pozza, Susanna Pallini, Francesco Mancini and Marco Salvati

ABSTRACT: Literature reviews have shown that trait-mindfulness is significantly correlated to emotional wellbeing, both in adults and in children. Particularly, being judgemental towards one's inner thoughts, feelings and sensations, and acting unawares, is associated with higher maladjustment. In the present cross-sectional study, we explored the role of the different facets of mindfulness in both anxiety and depression, ...

I obsessively clean because deontological guilt makes me feel physiologically disgusted!

Cristina Ottaviani, Alberto Collazzoni, Francesca D'Olimpio, Tania Rovetta, Francesco Mancini

ABSTRACT: The emotions of guilt and disgust play a pivotal role in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The present study hypothesized the existence of a distinctive relation between deontological (but not altruistic) guilt and subjective and physiological correlates of disgust. Moreover, we aimed at testing whether the evoked emotion of disgust may activate OCD-like washing behaviors. Gender-matched healthy participants were ...

ABSTRACT: In line with the Appraisal Theories of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), in this review we present some experiments aimed at demonstrating the role of fear of guilt in OCD.

Alessandro Couyoumdjian, Cristina Ottaviani, Nicola Petrocchi, Roberta Trincas, Katia Tenore, Carlo Buonanno, Francesco Mancini

ABSTRACT: In this article one of the most signifi cant limits of Clinical Cognitivism is highlighted: the scarce relevance attributed to “goals” in explaining psychopathology. In the standard Clinical Cognitivism the role of beliefs and cognitive processes is highly stressed, while the role of goals in orienting the cognitive processes, and thus, in the development and maintenance of beliefs, is neglected. It is, in ...

Association between Attention and Heart Rate Fluctuations in Pathological Worriers

ABSTRACT: Recent data suggests that several psychopathological conditions are associated with alterations in the variability of behavioral and physiological responses. Pathological worry, defined as the cognitive representation of a potential threat, has been associated with reduced variability of heart beat oscillations (i.e., decreased heart rate variability; HRV) and lapses of attention indexed by reaction times (RTs). ...

Counterfactual thinking in moral judgment: an experimental study

ABSTRACT: Counterfactual thinking is thinking about a past that did not happen. This is often the case in 'if only...' situations, where we wish something had or had not happened. To make a choice in a moral decision-making situation is particularly hard and, therefore, may be often associated with the imagination of a different outcome. The main aim of the present study is to investigate counterfactual thinking in the ...

Amelia Gangemi, Francesco Mancini, P.N. Johnson-Laird
