This study investigated differential relations of brooding and reflection, two subscales of the Ruminative Responses Scale reported by Treynor, Gonzalez, and Nolen-Hoeksema (2003), with stress exposure and depressive symptoms. The results support the conceptualization of rumination as being composed of an adaptive reflective factor and a maladaptive brooding factor.
