Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of emotion regulation training on depression and emotion regulation strategies of pediatric type I diabetes.
Materials and Methods: The study used a quasi-experimental approach that included pre-and post-test assessments to compare the experimental and control groups. The University of Medical Sciences in Shiraz, provided services to a total of 30 patients. Patients were chosen using purposive sampling and were randomly allocated to either the experimental group (n=15) or the control group (n=15) Pediatric types I diabetes. The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) and the Gross and John Emotion Regulation Questionnaire were used to collecting data. The experimental group got eight training sessions on depression and emotional regulation (once a week for two months), whereas the control group got no instruction. The data was analyzed using an analysis of covariance by SPSS.23.
Results: The mean (±SD) of age in the experimental group and control groups were determined to be 14.60 (±0.88) and 14.46 (±073) years, respectively. According to the results, emotion regulation training had a significant effect in decreasing depression and increasing the adaptive emotional regulation strategies in students (P> 0.001).
Conclusion: Emotion regulation training might be a useful strategy for improving emotion regulation difficulties in patients with type I diabetes, according to the findings of this investigation, although the efficacy of emotion regulation training was not approved in this investigation due to a lack of intervention factors.
