Abstract

The field of psychology is in the midst of an “emotion revolution,” reflecting the emerging role of emotion theory in clinical research and practice (Samoilov & Goldfried, 2000; Southam-Gerow & Kendall, 2002). Although many researchers have commended this trend, there is also an ongoing call for more clinical research that is founded on emotion theory and expands our understanding of the relations between the development of psychopathology, including anxiety disorders (ADs), and various emotional constructs (Hannesdottir & Ollendick, 2007; Suveg, Southam-Gerow, Goodman, & Kendall, 2007). Emotion regulation is one such construct.
