Interpersonal Emotion Regulation Laboratory

The theme of this laboratory study is emotion regulation in interpersonal relationships, which explores how both partners in intimate and parent-child relationships regulate their emotions through interpersonal interactions when they feel negative emotions. Interpersonal interactions are progressively constructed processes, and it is expected to identify the key elements of the process that influence emotion regulation and to understand how an individual's emotion regulation leads to success or failure. In addition, interpersonal interactions are embedded in culture and need to be proactively incorporated into Chinese culture to develop theories that meet needs. The lab welcomes master's students and undergraduates.
