MARTINEZ-TABOADA, Cristina; ALBEZA, Alicia; AMUTIO, Alberto  e  NICOLAE, Gabriela. Positive affective prediction as a factor of social emotional protection in transnational mothers before and after family reunification: relationship with life satisfaction, emotional regulation, social loneliness, resilience and stress. Ter Psicol [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.2, pp.173-184. ISSN 0718-4808.

Affective forecasting is an emotional process of overestimation of the future. Previous studies indicate that if these expectations are excessive and do not coincide with reality they can lead to a high socio emotional cost after the event. In order to analyze the differences in affective predictions before and after transnational reunification 188 immigrant mothers resident in Spain were divided in two groups according to whether or not they had regrouped with their children. Both groups were homogeneous in socio-demographics (age, number of children, education level, employment status, and reasons for migrating). The results confirm the existence of significant differences between emotional experience, before and after reunification. It was found that affective forecasting played a positive role before and after the event for the variables affecting socio-cognitive regulation in both groups (well-being, emotional regulation, resilience and stress), but in different manner during the process of transnational family reunification.
