«Development and structural validation of a scale to assess regulation of anger and sadness in interpersonal situations* M. Florencia Giuliani1 ...»

-- [ Page 3 ] --

A noteworthy result of our research is the identification of differences in the selection of ER strategies according to the emotion which is experienced. Attentional deployment and seeking emotional support were more frequent in the sadness situation. Both are focused on subjective changes, either by undertaking individual efforts or by communicating with others. In the case of the anger situation, by contrast, participants were more prone to choose avoidance strategies (e.g. selection of situations) or strategies involving manipulation of the environment. These results are consistent with previous literature (Páez, Martínez, Sevillano, Mendiburo, & Campos, 2012).

Our results do, however, need to be interpreted with caution due to the limitations of the study. First, the sample was gathered using a non-probabilistic procedure and comprised participants with relatively homogeneous sociodemographic characteristics (e.g. mostly women and undergraduate students). This prevents the results from being generalized, and further studies involving a larger and more diverse sample of participants are now necessary in order to validate and test the scale in different populations and contexts. Further research is also required to obtain additional estimates of the instrument’s reliability and validity. For instance, it would be of considerable interest to explore the concurrent validity of the instrument with measures of ER, coping, well-being, or satisfaction with social relationships. Regarding discriminant validity, studies addressing the validity of ER scales usually include variables that were not assessed in this study, such as alexithymia (Páez et al., 2012) or negative affectivity (Cabello et al., 2013).

Despite these limitations our research nonetheless offers a new selfadministered instrument for assessing ER. Unlike most instruments designed for this purpose, our scale incorporates contextual and emotional explicit information, and it includes subscales covering a wider range of ER strategies. Although these characteristics could increase the complexity of the instrument and reduce the trans-situational generalization of results, the data obtained have greater ecological validity and are closer to the everyday behaviors investigated. This will facilitate the design of interventions aimed at improving ER within interpersonal contexts and, therefore, the well-being, quality, and satisfaction that is experienced through interpersonal ties.
