This thesis is comprised of three chapters including a systematic review, an empirical paper and a critical appraisal. The systematic review explored the literature on metacognitions and components of the Cognitive Attentional Syndrome in physical illness related distress. The empirical paper was a randomized trial of Attention Training versus relaxation in the treatment of distress and somatic symptom frequency in high physical symptom reporters. The critical appraisal focused on reflecting on the empirical paper, the systematic review and the research process as a whole.
