The Effects of Self-Focus on Negative Mood among Depressed and Nondepressed Japanese Students.
Sakamoto, Shinji
Journal of Social Psychology, v138 n4 p514-23 Aug 1998
Examines the effects of self-focus on mood in which 60 Japanese university students were assigned to self-, other- and social-focus conditions. Reveals that under self-focus conditions, the depressed participants reported more negative feelings than did their nondepressed counterparts. Implies that when depressed persons focus on the external environment, their negative moods may decrease. (CMK)
