Abstract
The development of the Adolescent Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (AERQ) involved the creation of instrument items that were designed to measure emotion regulation strategies in cognitive, behavioral, physiological, and social response domains; intensity or duration emotional features; and pleasant or unpleasant emotional valances. The AERQ underwent revisions following an expert analysis and pilot testing, which resulted in an 80 item instrument to administer to 364 adolescents between the ages of 12 – 17 years in the Greater Edmonton Area. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated that the hypothesized structure for the instrument (4 domains x 2 emotional features x 2 emotional valances) was not supported and therefore was abandoned. An exploratory factor analysis revealed a 4 factor model that clearly distinguished between pleasant and unpleasant emotional valances. The model also made a distinction between cognitive and physiological response domains within the unpleasant emotional valance, as well as a complex factor relating to the social response domain. A bivariate correlational matrix (N=354) portraying the strength and direction of relationships between the four AERQ factors and 15 scales that comprised the supplementary measures (i.e., Beck Youth Inventories-II, Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire, and WISC Symbol Search) demonstrated convergent and divergent validity support for the AERQ.
