Behavioural and externalising disorders are estimated to affect around seven per cent
of those aged 9 to 15, and may account for one third to a half of all clinical referrals.
Without intervention, the projected outcomes for these children are likely to be poor.
This study aimed to explore whether there is a relationship between child and parent
emotion regulation strategies. The study also investigated the relationship between
children’s emotion regulation and conduct difficulties.
A cross sectional design was used to determine the relationship between emotion
regulation strategies used by children and their parents, in a non-clinical population.
Children were recruited through primary schools and were between the ages of 9 to
11. Children completed two questionnaires: one measuring emotion regulation
strategies (external-functional, external-dysfunctional, internal-functional, internaldysfunctional),
and a second measuring their general well-being. Parents also
completed two questionnaires: one measuring emotion regulation strategies and a
second measuring their child's behaviour and emotional well-being.
The analysis indicated that there were some correlations between parent-child
emotion regulation strategies; children and mothers external-dysfunctional strategies
were correlated, as were children and mothers internal-functional strategies. The
analysis also indicated that there was a correlation between children's externaldysfunctional
strategies and conduct difficulties.||en
