Background: It is important to investigate the role of cognitive, developmental and environmental factors in the development and maintenance of Obsessive Compulsive Symptomatology (OCS). Aims: The main objective of this study was to examine the vulnerability factors of OCS in a non-clinical sample. On the basis of Salkovskis' cognitive model of OCD, the study aimed to investigate the role of perceived parental rearing behaviours, responsibility attitudes, and life events in predicting OCS. Furthermore, the mediator role of responsibility attitudes in the relationship between perceived parental rearing behaviours and OCS was examined. Finally, the specificity of these variables to OCS was evaluated by examining the relationship of the same variables with depression and trait anxiety. Method: A total of 300 university students (M = 19.55 +/- 1.79) were administered the Padua Inventory-Washington State University Revision, Responsibility Attitudes Scale, s-EMBU (My memories of upbringing), Life Events Inventory for University Students, Beck Depression Inventory, and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory-Trait Form. Results: Regression analysis revealed that perceived mother overprotection, responsibility attitudes and life events significantly predicted OCS. Furthermore, responsibility attitudes mediated the relationship between perceived mother overprotection and OCS. The predictive role of perceived mother overprotection and the mediator role responsibility attitudes were OCS specific. Conclusions: The findings of the present study supported that perceived mother overprotection as a developmental vulnerability factor significantly contributed to the explanation of a cognitive vulnerability factor (namely responsibility attitudes), and perceived maternal overprotection had its predictive role for OCS through responsibility attitudes.

Perceived parenting styles, self-ambivalence, cognitive and emotional regulation in relation to obsessive-compulsive symptomatology
Özekin Üncüer, Filiz; Karancı, Ayşe Nuray; Department of Psychology (2015)
The main objective of this dissertation is to examine the factors contributing to the development and maintenance of general obsessive-compulsive symptomatology (OCS) in a community sample. On the basis of cognitive models (Salkovskis, 1985; Rachman, 1997; Clark, 2004), Guidano and Liotti‟s model of selfambivalence, and Gross‟ (1999) process model of emotion regulation, the present study aimed to investigate the role of perceived parental styles, self-ambivalence, maladaptive appraisals, and emotion regulat...
Self-empowerment through making: exploring the involvement experiences of people with disabilities in designing and adapting assistive products
Canlar, Koray; Doğan, Çağla; Department of Industrial Design (2022-9-1)
The effects of disabilities can vary significantly between individuals (e.g., function and body structure problems, limitations, or prevention of involvement in activities). This variability in the needs of people with disabilities demands inclusive and universal design approaches and personalized assistive solutions which empower people with disabilities, allowing them to have more control over their actions and to participate in activities. The empowering potential of the maker movement and production act...
Further Support for Responsibility in Different Obsessive-Compulsive Symptoms in Turkish Adolescents and Young Adults
Yorulmaz, Orcun; Altin, Muejgan; Karanci, Nuray (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2008-10-01)
According to the cognitive model, an inflated sense of responsibility is an important cognitive mediator both in the development and maintenance of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Empirical findings assign differential roles to responsibility in different kinds of obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptoms. However, findings that suggested a different function for responsibility revealed the need for an operational definition of responsibility and its multi-factorial factorial structure. Few studies have exami...
