Congratulations to Steven Barnes, PhD, for his poster

A quick look back at the Amsterdam conference to congratulate our second winner of the poster contest organised by EACLIPT, Steven Barnes, PhD, for his poster entitled "Development of a mobile application-based ecological momentary intervention: Initial outcomes of a pilot examination of an intervention reducing experiential avoidance in the context of rumination." Steven Barnes is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Emotion Cognition Lab at the SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Poland.

Steven did a remarkable poster in which he presented the initial outcomes of a pilot examination of a mobile-application intervention. Rumination involves repetitive negative thinking perceived to be difficult to control and present across several psychological disorders. One mechanism underpinning rumination, experiential avoidance, lack empirical validation. Steven and his team used a mobile application with a Rumination Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy intervention and recruited participants with a high score in rumination. Their initial results show that the intervention programme appears to be efficacious in reducing experiential avoidance and rumination and may also have an increased in awareness. There was a good acceptability and usabilitiy of the intervention content.

We wish the best for Steven and his team in the implementation of the modifications for the usability and appeal in their application and hope that their enhanced version, currently in development, will soon see the light of day.
