Single Session Intervention for Self-Dislike

Study Description

Evaluating and Predicting Response to a Single Session Intervention for Self-Dislike

The investigators are testing whether a single session online intervention for self-dislike decreases: 1. Fear of self-compassion from immediate pre to immediate post intervention 2. Self-hatred immediate pre to 1 month post-intervention 3. Individual depression symptoms immediate pre to 1 month post-intervention more than a placebo online single session intervention encouraging the disclosure of feelings in college students. The investigators will also explicitly test whether the following variables are predictors, of at least the smallest variance predicted of interest, of response to treatment vs. placebo on self-hatred: 4. Pre intervention self-hatred score 5. Screening positive for clinical depression based on self-report 6. Immediate pre to post-intervention reduction in fear of self-compassion 7. The investigators will also assess whether any of the variance shared between the treatment and changes in individual depression symptoms immediately pre Intervention to 1 month post-intervention is statistically mediated by change in self-hatred from immediate pre intervention to 1 month post intervention
