Emotion Regulation

Short Description: Using a short form of the Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ; Gross & John, 2003) we examine associations of the use of two habitual emotion regulation strategies, suppression and reappraisal, with demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, indicators of health, quality of life, and social functioning, and with life events and chronic stressors.

Methodological Details: Four self-report items, namely “When I want to feel more positive emotion, I change what I’m thinking about, “I keep my emotions to myself”, “When I want to feel less negative emotion, I change what I’m thinking about”, and “I control my emotions by not expressing them”.
