Abstract

Introduction: Given the importance of identifying factors influencing emotion dysregulation in order to design interventions to promotion emotion regulation in different age groups, present study aimed to investigating the role of dimensions of UPPS-P model of impulsivity and age increasing in men�s emotion dysregulation. Materials and Methods: The number of 294 subjects were selected through available sampling from men general population of Tehran city and were assessed employing UPPS-P Impulsive Behavior Scale, Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale, and demographic questionnaire. Data were analyzed based on Pearson correlation test and hierarchical regression analysis using version 22 of SPSS software. Results: The findings showed that there were significant coloration between all dimensions of impulsivity, with the exception of sensation seeking, and age with emotion dysregulation. Results of regression analysis showed that dimensions of impulsivity and age have significant role in prediction of emotion dysregulation and explain 47 percent of total variance of it (F=40.67, P<0.01). Among the predictor variables lack of perseverance (t=3.66, P<0.01), negative urgency (t=5.98, P<0.01), positive urgency (t=2.81, P<0.01), and age (t=-2.14, P<0.01) had significant contribution in the prediction of the emotion dysregulation. Conclusion: Although the contribution of dimensions of impulsivity in the prediction of the emotion dysregulation is much more prominent than age and shows the importance of impulsivity in emotion dysregulation, age also has significant contribution in prediction of emotion dysregulation and increasing in age is accompanied with better using emotional regulation strategies and reducing in emotion dysregulation.
