Andy will be discussing:
“Future-directed thinking and emotional disorders”
How people think about their own personal futures is a key component of their well-being and mental health. This talk will discuss the different kinds of ways that future-directed thinking breaks down in anxiety and depression, as well as in suicidal behaviour, where disruptions to future-directed thinking are probably most stark. Understanding disruptions also offers the promise of interventions, and the talk will discuss strategies that might improve future-directed thinking.
Friday 3rd November 12:30pm-1:30pm
Herchel Smith Building on the Forvie site at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge
