Abstract:

World-wide population health data point to the increased global burden of mood disorders, particularly for depression and anxiety disorders. Based on a repository of evidence that we have accumulated to date, we developed and tested an individualized feedback intervention to guide the self-management of mood difficulties. The intervention builds on our existing conceptual model that includes complex algorithms to derive a rapid analysis of a person's daily stress, coping, and affect patterns to produce an individualized profile of mood difficulties. The intervention analyzes: (a) how increases in maladaptive appraisals and coping combine to increase negative affect, (b) how increases in constructive appraisals and coping are linked to increases in positive affect, (c) how self-critical perfectionism and maladaptive stress and coping tendencies explain enduring mood problems, (d) how adaptive appraisal and coping patterns can point to personal strengths, and, most important, (e) what the person needs to do to manage and improve their mood.
