The relevance of maintaining and worsening processes in psychopathology

  • Francesco Mancini (a1) and Amelia Gangemi (a2)
Abstract

The states called “psychopathology” are very diverse, but Lane et al.'s single-process explanation does little to account for this diversity. Moreover, some other crucial phenomena of psychopathology do not fit this theory: the role of negative evaluations of conscious emotions, and the role of emotions without physiological correlates. And it does not consider the processes maintaining disorders.
