Abstract

Past research has recorded multiple benefits of being able to regulate one's emotions. However, this research has been mainly conducted using Western samples. Recent research suggests that the impacts of emotion regulation, and factors that influence it such as emotional reactivity, alexithymia, and beliefs about emotions, may be more nuanced than thought. However, lack of psychometrically sound assessment tools in Asian cultures severely limits further research in this field. The present research addressed this by examining the psychometric properties of present and new assessments of emotion regulation, emotional reactivity, alexithymia, and beliefs about emotions and evaluating their use across cultures.
