Example text

Dysphoric students who ruminated generated less effective solutions to the hypothetical problems than dysphorics who distracted or nondysphoric participants who ruminated or distracted (see also Brockner, 1979; Brockner & Hulton, 1978; Kuhl, 1981; Strack, Blaney, Ganellen, & Coyne, 1985). Formulating an effective solution to one’s personal problems is clearly an important step of the problem-solving process. However, even once a promising plan has been conceived, an equally important step is to actually go ahead and carry it out.

Moreover, process and metacognitive dimensions appear to correlate with depression. Whether the similarities or differences between rumination and other constructs are critical contributors to psychopathology remains to be determined in future investigations. The hypothesized functions of rumination were also reviewed and empirical support was found for the role of metacognitive beliefs about rumination in depression. Finally, the relationships between rumination, depression and metacognition were examined.
