    There is an increasing interest in the psychopathological role played by negative repetitive thinking in the mechanism of anxiety and mood disorders. An expert panel of speakers will discuss different forms of repetitive thinking and their role in maintaining clinical disorders. Worry, rumination and other kind of repetitive and perseverative thinking styles contribute to both anxiety and depression (Borkovec, Robinson, Pruzinsky, & DePree, 1983; Nolen-Hoeksema, 1991). Empirical research has repeatedly demonstrated that repetitive thinking is involved in risk for anxious and depressive symptoms and episodes (Calmes & Roberts, 2007). This will stimulate an interesting discussion between the panel and other members of the SIG. In addition, the SIG will encourage discussion of different theoretical models and interventions which address the processes that maintain different forms of repetitive thinking.
