DUQUE, Almudena; LOPEZ-GOMEZ, Irene; BLANCO, Iván  and  VAZQUEZ, Carmelo. Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) in depression: A critical review of new procedures to change cognitive biases. Ter Psicol [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.2, pp.103-116. ISSN 0718-4808.

Cognitive biases play an important role as vulnerability factors in emotional disorders. Interventions for Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) have recently begun to be developed with the ultimate goal of improving clinical symptoms. Although these innovative procedures have been applied mainly in anxiety problems, there is increasing research on the application in depression. This work reviews the theoretical framework, the procedures used, and the main results of CBM in depression, especially in the modification of attention and interpretative bias. Finally the conceptual and methodological limitations of these promising interventions procedures are analyzed as well as the clinical, theoretical and applied implications.

Keywords : Cognitive bias modification (CBM); cognitive bias; cognitive interventions; depression.
