Emotion regulation choice: Theory and findings.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Can we consistently predict the regulatory choices individuals make to deal with their emotions? Are there specific emotional, cognitive, and motivational influences that systematically affect these regulatory preferences? What are the major factors underlying the regulatory choice process? And what are the broad implications of regulatory choices? In this chapter I try to answer these important questions. Specifically, I begin by introducing the importance of emotion regulation choice and its relative lack of empirical investigation. I then introducei'.a recent conceptual model to explain dominant emotional, cognitive, and motivational determinants, and underlying mechanisms of emotion regulation choice between dominant cognitive emotion regulation categories. I close by describing broad implications and future directions. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)
