We know that there is an intimate and reciprocal relationship between our thinking and our moods - feeling sad can increase pessimistic thinking and vice versa. This blog focuses on how psychological research helps us to understand these cognition and emotion interactions - and how they relate to how people develop and recover from depression. I will examine research on thinking and emotion and their implications for psychological treatments for depression, hopefully with some practical advice for readers. So all in all, there should be plenty of food and mood for thought..
