Title: The Characteristics and Influences of Paternal and Maternal Emotion Socialisation on Adolescents’ Emotion Regulation
Date: 15 August 2014, 1-2pm
Venue: AS4/02-08 (Psychology Department Meeting Room)
The present study examined the characteristics and influences of paternal and maternal emotion socialisation – parental reactions and emotional expressivity – on the emotion regulation of 115 Singapore adolescents aged 11-19. Results indicated both divergences and convergences in the characteristics of parental reactions vis-à-vis the findings established in the East and the West. Notably, some of the parental reactions that surfaced from the study were distinctive. Further, results signified the need to investigate both paternal and maternal emotion socialisation and their influences on adolescents’ emotion regulation.
