Catanzaro, S. J. (1993). Mood regulation expectancies, anxiety sensitivity, and emotional

This study combined stimulus-outcome expectancies (anxiety sensitivity) and behavior-outcome expectancies (negative mood regulation expectancies) as predictors of depression and anxiety. Findings indicated that anxiety sensitivity and expectancies for negative mood regulation are distinct although moderately correlated constructs. The author concluded that expectancy models will not be complete unless both stimulus-outcome and behavior-outcome expectancies are used in combination as predictors of negative affect.
