Dr Henrietta Roberts
Research Fellow


I am a Research Fellow on an NIMH funded clinical trial: Developing rumination-focused treatment to reduce risk for depression recurrence in adolescence (RuMeChange).

The trial principal investigators are (equal co-PI) Scott Langenecker (University of Utah, Salt Lake City) and Edward Watkins, University of Exeter. This project takes the rumination-focused cognitive-behavioural therapy developed for adults by Ed Watkins at Exeter and extends it to adolescents with a history of recurrent depression, to test in consecutive clinical trials if it helps to prevent relapse in adolescence. The research also tests mechanistic hypotheses including assessment of behavioural indices of rumination and changes in functional brain connectivity (cognitive control network to default mode network) as a consequence of treatment and as a predictor of prognosis.
