Specifically, reappraisal may be adaptive when stressors are uncontrollable (when the person can… Expand
The Wisdom to Know the Difference
TLDR
This study is the first to test the strategy-situation-fit hypothesis using ecological momentary assessment of cognitive reappraisal—a putatively adaptive strategy to find little evidence for an association between greater well-being and greater mean use of reappRAisal across situations. Expand

Emotion Regulation Questionnaire-Adapted and Individual Differences in Emotion Regulation
TLDR
The present study investigates the psychometrical properties, individual differences and correlates of a French adapted version of the ERQ, which comprises reappraisal and the two response modulation tendencies – expressive suppression and expressive enhancement. Expand
Social anxiety and emotion regulation flexibility: considering emotion intensity and type as contextual factors
TLDR
Investigating emotion regulation flexibility in socially anxious individuals in response to two contextual factors, namely different levels of emotion intensity and emotion type revealed that HSAs were found to use more experiential avoidance than LSAs, especially at higher levels of negative intensity.

Adaptive and maladaptive emotion regulation strategies: interactive effects during CBT for social anxiety disorder.
TLDR
It is found that putatively adaptive and maladaptive emotion regulation strategies interacted with each other in the prediction of social anxiety symptoms in a sample of 71 participants undergoing CBT for SAD and that this interaction was qualified by a three-way interaction with a contextual factor, namely treatment study phase.

Abstract Research has shown a link between emotion regulation (ER) repertoire, the range of ER strategies an individual employs and the degree to which they rely on them, and well-being. However,Expand
Toward a Personalized Science of Emotion Regulation.
TLDR
A concrete framework is proposed that explicitly considers emotion regulation as an interaction of person, situation, and strategy, and assumes that regulatory effects vary according to these factors, and sets as a primary scientific goal the identification of person-, situation-, and strategy-based contingencies for successful emotion regulation.

Seeing the silver lining: cognitive reappraisal ability moderates the relationship between stress and depressive symptoms.
TLDR
Results indicate that, at low levels of stress, participants' CRA was not associated with depressive symptoms, however, at high levels ofstress, women with high CRA exhibited less depressive symptoms than those with low CRA, suggesting that CRA may be an important moderator of the link between stress and depressive symptoms.
