Emotion Regulation and Depression in Breast Cancer Survivorship

Project summary

Cancer patients are more likely than the general population to evidence depressive symptoms and clinical depression, but little is known about the factors that put individuals at risk for clinical depression when they have cancer. This project will provide information about who is at risk and factors contributing to high risk for depression, when they can be identified, and ingredients of interventions that are likely to be effective in reducing depression in women diagnosed with breast cancer. This research will help to target limited mental health resources to make the largest impact in preventing and treating depression in the face of cancer.
