≪Organizer Abstract≫
The ability to control emotions is a core human capacity that predicts a range of consequential outcomes. This symposium brings together five scholars whose work aims to advance our understanding of this basic psychological process from different perspectives. Kross will begin by reviewing findings from a series of studies, which suggest that the language people use to refer to the self during introspection powerfully impacts emotion regulation. Moser will then review work highlighting the role that individual differences in worry play in predicting the emotion regulation success. Penner will then discuss the role that two self-regulatory mechanisms--self-distancing and self-efficacy--play in jointly buffering highly vulnerably pediatric cancer caregivers against long-term distress. Finally, turning to culture and development,Karasawa will demonstrate that whereas temperament predicts emotion regulation among Japanese children, theory of mind predicts emotion regulation among Japanese children. Kitayama will discuss the four presentations and contextualize them in a socio-cultrual framework
