This thesis examines cognitive and trait models of depression and finds that neither negative explanatory style, a cognitive concept, nor neuroticism, a trait-based concept, can completely account for depression. The combination of negative explanatory style and neuroticism is therefore evaluated, and the possibility that a more effective description of the development of depression may result from a framework which combines these variables is discussed.
