Brain Function and Repeated Emotion Regulation Training
“Changes in Brain Function Through Repeated Emotion Regulation Training”
This is a pilot study that will investigate how two psychotherapies (re-interpretation and mindfulness) alter brain function. This information will be used to gain understanding of how repeated emotion regulation practices influence the brain and to develop a focused, tactic-based emotional regulation remediation approach for treatment of ADHD.
Behavioral - Cognitive Behavioral Training
The CBT-based regulation training involves using a cognitive strategy that instructs participants to reappraise situations in positive or less negative ways.
Behavioral - Mindfulness
The MBT-based regulation training involves using a mindfulness strategy that instructs participants to notice and accept their feelings without judgment or intent to act upon them.
