Keywords:OCD, CBT, Emotion Regulation, Negative Emotions
AbstractThe persons with OCD have increased levels of negative emotions particularly anxiety, fear and sadness. Also they have difficulties in regulating their negative emotions. In the present paper, we explored the association of suppression and re-appraisal emotion regulation strategies in relation to dimensions of OCD. 30 patients with OCD sampled from Institute of Mental Health and Hospital, Agra were individually administered Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (Gross & John 2003) and Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Abramowitz et al. 2010). The results suggested that re-appraisal strategy was negative associated with Germs Dimension and positively associated with Thoughts Dimension of OCD. It is suggested that for the use of different types of emotion regulation strategy vary with the nature of psychopathology in the patients with OCD.
