Emotion regulation has been conceptualized as a process by which individuals modify their emotional experiences, expressions, and physiology and the situations eliciting such emotions in order to produce appropriate responses to the ever-changing demands posed by the environment. Thus, context plays a central role in emotion regulation. This is particularly relevant to the work on emotion regulation in psychopathology, because psychological disorders are characterized by rigid responses to the… 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. Expand
Emotion dysregulation: A theme in search of definition
TLDR
A portrayal of emotion dysregulation as a biologically dynamic, experience-based aspect of adaptation to environments and relationships that motivates patterns of emotional responding that serve immediate coping often at the cost of long-term maladaptation is offered. Expand
One versus many: Capturing the use of multiple emotion regulation strategies in response to an emotion-eliciting stimulus
TLDR
Findings are presented suggesting that people spontaneously use multiple emotion regulation strategies in response to a brief disgust-eliciting film clip, and implications for future empirical work on emotionregulation strategies. Expand
Emotion Regulation Strategies in Daily Life: Examining Contextual Variability in the Process of Emotion Regulation
Contemporary theories of emotional well-being emphasize context as being inextricably linked to the process of emotion regulation. Empirical studies of these processes have generally relied uponExpand
Linking the Expanded Process Model of Emotion Regulation to Psychopathology by Focusing on Behavioral Outcomes of Regulation
Almost two decades ago, James Gross published a seminal article outlining the mechanisms by which people regulate their emotions in order to respond to the various demands posed by the environmentExpand
EMOTION REGULATION STRATEGIES AS TRANSDIAGNOSTIC PROCESSES: A CLOSER LOOK AT THE INVARIANCE OF THEIR FORM AND FUNCTION
Recent investigations suggest that emotion regulation can be conceptualized as a trans- diagnostic process (Kring & Sloan, 2010). Specifically, the habitual use of putatively maladaptive emotionExpand
Emotion regulation across the life span.
TLDR
The brain regions involved in both triggering and modulating affect, and how they may change throughout development and into old age are outlined, with a particular focus on the neural bases of emotion regulation. Expand
Looking at Emotion Regulation Through the Window of Emotion Dynamics
In his target article, James Gross presents an extended version of his process model of emotion regulation that has deeply shaped the field of emotion regulation research. The extended process modelExpand
Broadening the Scope of Research on Emotion Regulation Strategies and Psychopathology
TLDR
Overt strategies were associated with symptoms and, at times, they predicted psychopathology above and beyond the more frequently studied covert strategies. Expand
Back to basics: a naturalistic assessment of the experience and regulation of emotion.
TLDR
Estimates of the frequency and effectiveness of a large number of emotion regulation strategies in response to both negative and positive emotions are provided. Expand

TLDR
A perspective on how emotionregulation should be defined, the various components of the management of emotion, how emotion regulation strategies fit into the dynamics of social interaction, and how individual differences in emotion regulation should be conceptualized and measured is offered. Expand
The Emerging Field of Emotion Regulation: An Integrative Review
The emerging field of emotion regulation studies how individuals influence which emotions they have, when they have them, and how they experience and express them. This review takes an evolutionaryExpand
Healthy and unhealthy emotion regulation: personality processes, individual differences, and life span development.
TLDR
Reappraisal has a healthier profile of short-term affective, cognitive, and social consequences than suppression and issues in the development of reappraisal and suppression are considered to provide new evidence for an increasingly healthy emotion regulation profile during adulthood. Expand
Explicit and implicit emotion regulation: A dual-process framework
TLDR
A dual-process framework that integrates explicit and implicit forms of emotion regulation is presented, and it is argued that both forms of regulation are necessary for well-being. Expand
The influence of context on the implementation of adaptive emotion regulation strategies.
TLDR
Support is found for a contextual model of emotion regulation, in which adaptive strategies were implemented with more cross-situational variability than maladaptive strategies, and the variability in implementation of two adaptive strategies predicted lower levels of psychopathology. Expand
The psychology of emotion regulation: An integrative review
The present article reviews modern research on the psychology of emotion regulation. Emotion regulation determines the offset of emotional responding and is thus distinct from emotional sensitivity,Expand
Emotion regulation and psychopathology.
TLDR
This review presents an extended process model of emotion regulation, and uses this model to describe key points at which emotion-regulation difficulties can lead to various forms of psychopathology. Expand

TLDR
Reappraisal decreased disgust experience, whereas suppression increased sympathetic activation, suggesting that these 2 emotion regulatory processes may have different adaptive consequences. Expand
“I feel better but I don't know why”: The psychology of implicit emotion regulation
TLDR
The contributions to this special issue of Cognition and Emotion highlight the significance of implicit emotion regulation in psychological adaptation, goal-directed behaviour, interpersonal behaviour, personality functioning, and mental health. Expand
Emotion-Regulation Choice
TLDR
A new process conception of emotion regulation was hypothesized, which predicted that in low-intensity negative situations, people would show a relative preference to choose to regulate emotions by engagement reappraisal, which allows emotional processing, while people in high- intensity negative situations would be expected to show arelative preference to chose to regulated emotions by disengagement distraction.
