Mental imagery and distressing emotions.
Research also shows an important connection between intrusive imagery and distressing emotions. In a review by Brewin, Gregory and Burgess (Psychological Review, 2010), they stated that:
“Involuntary images and visual memories are prominent in many types of mental health issues. Patients with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), other anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, and psychosis frequently report repeated visual intrusions corresponding to a small number of real or imaginary events, usually extremely vivid, detailed, and with highly distressing content.”
They concluded that:
“Involuntary memory-related imagery appears to play a more significant role than has previously been thought across a wide range of psychological disorders. It represents a mechanism whereby high-impact events in a person’s history, whether real or imagined, can continue to affect thought, emotion, and behaviour…. This suggests that it should be given greater prominence as a target of psychological therapy than has often been the case.”
