This thesis focuses on a model of affect regulation; Gilbert’s (2005) three systems model, to explore emotional reactions to mental imagery. Compassion focussed imagery (CFIm) is the focus of the literature review as this is a specific type of mental imagery which is grounded in a coherent model of affect regulation. The empirical paper then aims to explore individuals’ emotional reactions to the mental imagery of a positive social memory. The three systems model, along with findings from the literature review are drawn upon to inform the hypotheses for the empirical paper. A concluding chapter, which includes a lay summary and a future research proposal then follows.
