Abstract

GUZMAN-GONZALEZ, Mónica et al. Validity and Reliability of the Adapted Spanish Version of the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale in Chilean Population. Ter Psicol [online]. 2014, vol.32, n.1, pp.19-29. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082014000100002.

This study sought to examine the validity and reliability of the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale Spanish version (DERS-S) in chilean population. This is a self-report instrument that measures difficulties in emotion regulation in adults. Two samples were evaluated: one composed of 1018 university students and the second one composed of 1161 participants from general population. Individuals completed the DERSE and Outcome Questionnaire OQ-45.2. Reliability indices were adequate in both samples and the factor structure consistent with the spanish version adaptation. In addition, there were differences in emotional regulation difficulties according to socio-emotional adjustment. The results confirmed that the psychometric properties of the DERS-E make it a reliable and valid instrument to assess difficulties in emotion regulation.

Keywords : Emotion regulation; psychometric analysis; reliability; validity.
