A randomized controlled trial of mindfulness meditation versus relaxation training: Effects on distress, positive states of mind, rumination, and distraction
TLDR
The data suggest that compared with a no-treatment control, brief training in mindfulness meditation or somatic relaxation reduces distress and improves positive mood states, and mindfulness meditation may be specific in its ability to reduce distractive and ruminative thoughts and behaviors.
Effects of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction on Medical and Premedical Students
TLDR
Participation in the 8-week meditation-based stress reduction intervention can effectively reduce self-reported state and trait anxiety, reduce reports of overall psychological distress including depression, and increase scores on overall empathy levels.
The Levels of Emotional Awareness Scale: a cognitive-developmental measure of emotion.
TLDR
The LEAS correlated positively with openness to experience and emotional range but not with measures of specific emotions, repression or the number of words used in the LEAS responses, suggesting that it is the level of emotion, not the specific quality of emotions, that is tapped by the LE AS.
Distress and restraint as superordinate dimensions of self-reported adjustment: a typological perspective.
TLDR
A large number of nonadditive patterns consistent with a priori group descriptions corroborated the utility of a person-centered, typological approach and provided an empirically derived, prototypic description of each adjustment style.
Neuroanatomical correlates of pleasant and unpleasant emotion
TLDR
There are both common and unique components of the neural networks mediating pleasant and unpleasant emotion in healthy women that are consistent with those from other recent PET studies of human emotion.
Neuroanatomical correlates of externally and internally generated human emotion.
TLDR
This study identified brain regions that participate in externally and internally generated human emotion, suggesting that these regions participate in aspects of emotion that do not depend on the nature of the emotional stimulus.
Neuroanatomical correlates of happiness, sadness, and disgust.
TLDR
This study identifies regions of the brain that participate in happiness, sadness, and disgust, regions that distinguish between positive and negative emotions, and regions that depend on both the elicitor and valence of emotion or their interaction.
Levels of emotional awareness: a cognitive-developmental theory and its application to psychopathology.
TLDR
The authors present a cognitive-developmental theory of emotional awareness that creates a bridge between normal and abnormal emotional states and suggest applications of this model to current unresolved problems in psychiatric theory, research, and practice.
Impaired Verbal and Nonverbal Emotion Recognition in Alexithymia
TLDR
The results suggest that alexithymia is associated with impaired verbal and nonverbal recognition of emotion stimuli and that the hallmark of alexithsymia, a difficulty in putting emotion into words, may be a marker of a more general impairment in the capacity for emotion information processing.
