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.

Participants identified a dysphoric episode that occurred in the previous year by reporting the severity of 12 depressive symptoms and their plausible cause. A goal taxonomy was used to determine ...

Obsessions and compulsions and intolerance for uncertainty in a non-clinical sample

Francesco Mancini, Francesca D'Olimpio, Marisa Del Genio, Fabrizio Didonna, Elena Prunetti

We investigated the relationship between obsessivity and intolerance for uncertainty (defined in terms of need for cognitive closure), controlling for state and trait anxiety and depression. We tested non-clinical subjects through the Need for Closure Scale (NFCS), ...

Francesco Mancini, Andrea Gragnani, Francesca D'Olimpio

ABSTRACT: Although obsessive-compulsive patients (OCD) frequently report thoughts and compulsions about dirt and contamination, there is scarce evidence for a relationship between disgust and OCD. This study investigates whether there is a specific relationship between obsessive symptoms and disgust, independently of general psychological distress symptoms. We tested 278 non-clinical volunteers, through the Disgust Scale ...
