Description

Causes, Consequences and Treatment of Rumination: The Science of Thinking Too Much provides a complete synthesis of the existing research on rumination. It features clinical methods for detecting when and why rumination is occurring in clients and includes treatment modalities that have been shown to reduce unnecessary emotional distress. The book also applies a transdiagnostic overview of the broader theory and research on rumination, looking beyond depression to emphasize the wide range of outcomes associated with ruminative thought. Finally, the book examines the developmental origins of rumination (including childhood abuse and the role of negative experiences), and much more.
