VULNERABILITY TO PSYCHOPATHOLOGY: ITS NATURE AND MECHANISM OF ACTION
Moderator:Ljiljana Mihić
Even though the concept of vulnerability has been used for decades within the field of psychopathology, its nature and potential mechanisms of action are not well understood. An abundant literature suggests a number of the core features of vulnerability: a) it is considered a trait as opposed to a state phenomenon, b) it is usually conceptualized as latent and endogenous, c) requires stress in order to be actualized, and d) it is placed at the opposite end from resilience on a vulnerability continuum. Each talk within this symposium has been inspired to test one of these core features of vulnerability within the context of various psychopathological symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and health anxiety. Also, the idea that vulnerability can be regarded as an individual network of symptoms will be examined. Finally, different models of schizotypy (fully and quasi-dimensional constructions), as a vulnerability to schizophrenia will be explored. We hope that our symposium would provide additional insights into the nature of vulnerability and some guidance for preventative action.
