dc.description.abstract The present study aims to examine the effects of cognitive reappraisal and attentional control training across a spectrum of depression symptom severity. The literature has explored the efficacy of cognitive reappraisal and attentional training methods; however, no studies have compared the two emotion regulation strategies while also examining efficacy across a range of depression symptom severity. Results indicate that attentional control training led to less attention towards negative aspects of images and cognitive reappraisal had greater impact on lowering negative image ratings. The effects of training did not depend on depression level.
