Post-Event Processing Following Social and Nonsocial Evaluative Feedback
Following a social evaluative situation, socially
anxious people may retrieve negative information
about themselves and others during the situation,
and brood over this negative material after the
situation has occurred. This process is called
post-event processing (PEP), and has been theorized
to contribute to the maintenance of social anxiety.
Predictors of PEP can either be aspects of the
person (e.g. dispositional tendencies) or aspects of
the context (e.g. the nature of the event).
The figure above shows the effects of feedback type
(left) and emotion regulation condition (right) on
estimated adjusted means of negative PEP. Error bars
represent ±1 SEM.
