Edward Watkins, Ph.D., interviewed by Jacqueline Persons, Ph.D.
Rumination is a common clinical symptom and can interfere with treatment progress, yet few tools are available for clinicians to target this problem. Edward Watkins, PhD and his colleagues have developed a new model for conceptualizing and targeting rumination with depressed clients - the habit-goal framework of rumination. In this interview, he and Jacqueline Persons, PhD discuss his model, as well as specific clinical strategies that therapists can use to treat rumination.
