Lecture 11 October 27
Health and Emotions
Recently, meditation and other ancient practices have come back into studious f ields of
psychology.
How we nor mally think:
Evaluative: good/bad
Discrepancy based comparing me and you standards of comparison
Focused on past (regret, guilt, memor ies) or future, rarely on present
Problem solving: x is a problem, how can I fix it?
Our normal patterns of thinking are incessant and relentless
Mindfulness: an open, non-evaluative, non-reactive, present-moment focus of attention
Much of our suf fering has to do with resistance
The core of meditation self-awareness, wider gap between impulse and action,
control over attention, greater focus of attention on present greater hedonic
enjoyment!
Shares much in common with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) (open, present-
moment focus)
Difference: mindfulness is non-reactive/non-evaluative (doesnt try to solve ones
problems)
By practicing mindfulness, you learn to let go of things
How could this be useful for psychological disorders?
Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy for D epression
Depression has very high relapse rates… why?
Rumination seems to be key (constant tendency to introspect) makes a neural
network negative self schema
Their attempted solution is cause of depression!
The doing mode vs. being mode
Through practicing mindfulness train the brain to establish new neural network.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
