Emotion regulation as a main mechanism of change in psychotherapy. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract A model that suggests reconsolidation of traumatic memories as a mechanism of change in therapy is important, but problematic to generalize to disorders other than post- traumatic and acute-stress disorder. We suggest that a more plausible mechanism of change in psychotherapy is acquisition of adaptive emotion regulation strategies.
