This study tests components of the analytical rumination hypothesis in an undergraduate student sample. Data in regards to affect, behaviour, cognitions, and coping strategies were provided by a previously conducted longitudinal study with participants who reported experiencing an interpersonal harm. We are currently investigating the extent to which experiencing an interpersonal harm impacts depressed mood. We are also conducting factor analyses of the cognitive and coping strategies for the purpose of evaluating their influence on depressed mood. Additionally, the correlations between the cognitive and coping strategies were examined in order to determine the relationships between different types of thinking in relation to depression, which has not been previously considered. These different investigations test multiple components of the analytical rumination hypothesis, providing a real-world evaluation of the hypothesis.
