Effective problem solving and behavioural control rely in large part on the ability of a person to regulate emotions and/or the extent to which a person's living environment promotes or supports regulated emotions. Problems with emotion regulation are a common feature in most, if not all, psychiatric syndromes and challenging behaviours. In this 90-minute workshop, a model of emotion regulation and its role in effective cognitive and behavioural functioning will be presented. A variety of interventions will be presented that are geared towards helping people learn to regulate their emotions and thereby live happier and more stable lives. LEARNING OBJECTIVES Participants will be able to: 1) Explain how emotions impact problem solving and behaviour;2) List techniques which can help people learn to effectively regulate emotions; and 3) Identify common measures utilized to examine the short/ long-term outcomes for people using these techniques.
