Abstract :

Several studies have shown that emotion regulation (ER) and its relationship to well-being should be characterized by at least four parameters: first by ER-effectiveness; second by the frequency at which a specific ER-strategy is utilized; third by its adaptiveness, and fourth by how flexibly ER is taking place. In my presentation, empirical findings with respect to the association between ER and well-being are shortly reviewed (first part). Based on these findings, we developed the group intervention ├ó┬?┬?Managing Emotions: Emotions under control├ó┬?┬Ł (German: ├ó┬?┬?Gefu├?┬?hle im Griff ├ó┬?┬Ł), which systematically teaches participants specific emotion regulation strategies. Structure and content of the intervention program as well as preliminary results of efficacy (n=45) are presented in the second part of my talk.
