Clear Adjustment: Status Self-Concept Clarity And Emotion Regulation, Isidro Landa Aug 2021

Clear Adjustment: Status Self-Concept Clarity And Emotion Regulation, Isidro Landa

Arts & Sciences Electronic Theses and Dissertations

One factor associated with a person’s adjustment during important life transitions is self-concept clarity (SCC)—“the extent to which the contents of an individual's self-concept (e.g., perceived personal attributes) are clearly and confidently defined…”. However, it is not fully understood why and for whom SCC predicts adjustment. Recent work suggests that SCC may function as a resource for regulatory functions, allowing one to focus on long-term self-relevant goals rather than narrowly focusing on regulating immediate discomfort associated with uncertainty. It is possible that having high SCC facilitates emotion regulation in such a way that it allows one to engage and further …


Relationship Of Early Life Maltreatment To Self Regulation During An Affective Stroop Task, Sophie Tonjes May 2021

Relationship Of Early Life Maltreatment To Self Regulation During An Affective Stroop Task, Sophie Tonjes

College of Education and Human Sciences: Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research

Background: Previous research has found that childhood maltreatment is associated with emotional regulation difficulties, as well associations with brain structures, such as the amygdala and hippocampus. However, there are individual differences in the effect of maltreatment on emotional regulation, and this relationship may be dependent upon amygdala or hippocampal volume. The present study hypothesized that amygdala or hippocampal volume would moderate the relationship between maltreatment and emotional regulation. Method: Forty-nine college students were assessed for their history of parenting and participated in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study. Moreover, to measure emotional regulation skills, participants completed the Affective Stroop task, …


Emotion Regulation, Affective, Continuous, And Normative Commitment For Turnover Intentions Among Degree-Seeking Employees, Danette Colleen Sutter Jan 2021

Emotion Regulation, Affective, Continuous, And Normative Commitment For Turnover Intentions Among Degree-Seeking Employees, Danette Colleen Sutter

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Multiple researchers have investigated employee turnover related to affective, continuous, and normative commitment, and none reported the predictive power of emotion regulation reappraisal on these components of commitment with turnover intentions among degree-seeking employees. The purpose of this quantitative survey research study was to explore emotion regulation reappraisal and its predictive power for organizational commitment associated with degree-seeking employees' intentions to quit jobs. In this study, a small sample of N = 18 degree-seeking employees took part in survey methodology. Multiple regressions were performed to calculate the variance of independent variables, emotion regulation and affective, continuous, and normative commitment associated …
