Abstract

The research presents an analysis of links between the occurrence of cognitive distortions specified by means of 10 categories of cognitive distortions based on the Beck's Cognitive Theory and the positive and negative emotions of the employed and unemployed as two separate categories. The research sample consisted of 336 respondents (183 employed and 153 unemployed). Cognitive distortions were identified by means of daily records containing 10 pages per diary. Spearman Rank Correlation Coefficient revealed the differences in relations among cognitive distortions within the observed groups in connection to the positive and negative emotions. Occurrence of positive and negative emotions was observed with the help of SEHP.
