Jonathan Stange, B.A.
Bio: Jon is currently in his third year of graduate studies and is working with Dr. Lauren Alloy. Broadly, Jon is interested in cognitive vulnerability-stress models of mood disorders. More specifically, his research evaluates:
(1) cognitive styles as vulnerabilities to mood symptomatology in depression and bipolar disorder
(2) how flexibility and rigidity characterize and constitute vulnerability to mood disorders
(3) the conceptualization and measurement of cognitive vulnerabilities
(4) the development and consolidation of maladaptive cognitive styles, and
(5) cognitive mechanisms of empirically-validated psychotherapies for mood disorders.
