This study is the first to examine the potential interactive influence of these constructs on two differing forms of psychopathology: attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and depressive symptoms. Undergraduate students aged 18 –24 completed the Self-Regulation Questionnaire, Social Problem-Solving Inventory-Revised, Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale-Revised, and Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale. As expected, SR and NPO were found to be inversely related to each other and independently predictive of ADHD and depressive symptoms. Interestingly, their interaction differentially impacted the two assess...

Participants completed sociodemographic questions, emotional state questions relating to COVID-19, the Metacognitions Questionnaire ‐30, and the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7. Results showed that both negative beliefs about thoughts concerning uncontrollability and danger, and cognitive self-consciousness were significant predictors of anxiety beyond the fear and perceived danger of COVID-19. Future studies involving clinical popu...
