Regulating Emotion in Adolescence

Show Summary Details


This chapter describes how a cognitive-mediational theory of emotion that emerged from the stress and coping literature can be used as a framework for understanding the processes involved in emotion regulation. This framework has traditionally been employed largely to examine adult experience and there is surprisingly little integration across the developmental and adult literatures on emotion regulation. This conceptual framework is used to identify aspects of emotion regulation that might change or develop during adolescence and to highlight important areas for further research by developmental and family investigators interested in emotion regulation.

Keywords: emotion regulation; cognitive-mediational theory of emotion; stress; coping; adolescence
