Found on page 96

We randomly assigned participants to a hands-on condition, during which participants could freely pet and stroke cats and dogs in a small group setting; an observation condition, which constituted observing participants in the hands-on condition while waiting in line for one’s turn and a control condition, during which participants viewed still images of the same animals while refraining from social interaction. The control condition was intended to isolate the effect of viewing visual depictions of the program animals without the component of social interactions with peers or animals. We hypothesized that students with clinical levels of depression would exhibit higher levels of negative emotion and lower levels of positive emotion in response to waiting in line while observing than non-depressed students.
