Reflections on Rumination: In Memory of Susan Nolen-Hoeksema
Saturday, May 25, 2013,
10:30 AM - 11:50 AM
This symposium commemorates the immense contribution of Professor Susan Nolen-Hoeksema to our field, following her tragic death in January. Susan conducted ground-breaking work into understanding gender differences in depression and single-handedly initiated the study of depressive rumination. This symposium honours Susan with talks from her collaborators and past students: Ed Watkins on Susan's work and its legacy; Blair Wisco on rumination and psychological distance; Amelia Aldao on rumination within the context of emotion regulation; Lori Hilt on cognitive control in high and low ruminators; Katie McLaughlin on stressful life events and their influence on rumination. Finally, James Gross will act as discussant.
