MICHELINI, Yanina  y  GODOY, Juan Carlos. Argentinian Adaptation of Two Scales of Difficulties in Emotion Regulation in College Emerging Adults. Psykhe [online]. 2022, vol.31, n.1, pp.1-20. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7764/psykhe.2020.22585.

Difficulties in negative and positive emotion regulation (i.e., emotion dysregulation) underlie risky behaviors in college emerging adults. The Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS) and the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale-Positive (DERS-P) are widely used to measure emotion dysregulation; however, they lack Spanish-language versions with consistent psychometric properties. This study aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the DERS and the DERS-P in Argentinian college emerging adults. An accidental non-probability sampling process was conducted, yielding a sample of 392 participants (64.54% women) aged 18 to 28 years (M = 21.40; SD = 2.24) who attended 2 public universities in the city of Córdoba, Argentina. Confirmatory factor analyses of the original factor structure of the DERS and the DERS-P revealed excellent and satisfactory fit respectively. For both scales, satisfactory internal consistency values (Cronbach's alpha and composite reliability) were observed. The DERS and the DERS-P exhibited evidence of convergent validity with maladaptive strategies and divergent validity with adaptive strategies of cognitive emotion regulation (assessed with the CERQ). Moreover, they exhibited evidence of concurrent validity with Positive Urgency and Negative Urgency (assessed with the UPPS-P scale) and with Positive Affect and Negative Affect (assessed with the PANAS). Replicating these results in samples of students enrolled in a variety of college programs, incorporating the examination of test-retest reliability, might contribute to the validation of the DERS and the DERS-P in college emerging adults in Argentina.
