Background: The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of emotional regulation group training on self- injurious behavior, depression and anger in adolescents, considering the fact of the prevalence of self-injurious behavior, negative emotions and the importance of emotion regulation skills in adolescents.
Method: The research method is quasi-experimental with pre-test and post-test design with control group. The statistical population of the study is adolescents aged 13-15 years in Shiraz in 2020 who have self- injury experience. 30 subjects are selected as a sample based on multi-stage cluster random sampling method and randomly assigned to two groups of 15 experimental and control. Members of both groups are evaluated by pretest. Then Emotion regulation group training is applied online to the experimental group. After that, participants in both groups are evaluated using post-test. Data collection tools are: Deliberate Self -Harm Inventory (DSHI), Kutcher Adolescent Depression Scale (KADS-II), State and Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI-2). Descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (multivariate covariance) are used to analyze the data.
Results: The results of multivariate covariance test show that group training of emotion regulation has an effect on self- injurious behavior, depression and anger (P <0.05). Data analysis shows that there is a significant difference between experimental and control groups in terms of self- injury, depression and anger. Emotion regulation group training intervention reduces self-injurious behavior in adolescents and the rate of depression and anger in them.
Conclusion: Emotion regulation group training is one of the new therapies used to reduce problems, which in this study also confirms its effectiveness on emotions and dysfunctional behaviors of adolescents.
