Abstract: Cognitive Bias in Grief and Depression 6 Abstract The main purpose of the current study was to examine the cognitive biases between depressed individuals with or without bereavement experiences, and normal control participants. Cognitive tasks comprised of a trait rating task and an incidental recall task were administered. The study aimed to investigate the extent to which the three groups differed in their self-referent and other-referent processing of information. Other-referent condition invited participants to report their perceptions towards a significant other (or the deceased family member in the bereaved group) in the identical cognitive tasks. A significant three way interaction Group X Content X Valence was found in some of the dependent measures but not all. The cognitive vulnerability to depression was partially supported by the present findings. However, the bereaved depressed did not show the pattern of results that was similar to the non-bereaved depressed group. Implications of the findings were discussed.
