Helps to develop an understanding of the internal rules and processes that guide thinking, and the factors that lead individuals to become trapped in cycles of negative and distorted thought. Addresses limitations of cognitive theories and describes how metacognition, self-attentional processes, and worry/rumination strategies are central to emotional vulnerability, the maintenance of trauma-related stress reactions, and to emotional disorders. Describes new clinical strategies which will help clients change negative thoughts, distorted beliefs, and distressing emotions. Wells is affiliated with the University of Manchester, UK.
