Abstract

PURPOSE
This study was done to examine the relationships among self-esteem, depression and cognitive emotion regulation strategies of university students residing in dormitories.
METHODS
The participants were 466 university students residing in dormitories who completed the Self-esteem Questionnaire, Depression scale and Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire. Data were analyzed with SPSS/WIN 18.0.
RESULTS
There were significant differences in cognitive emotion regulation strategies according to levels of self-esteem and depression. Also, self-esteem was positively correlated with adaptive emotion regulation strategies. Depression was positively correlated with maladaptive emotion regulation strategies.
CONCLUSION
This result suggested that adaptive cognitive emotion regulation strategies are significant factors for effective stress coping in university students. Also, it is necessary to develop mental health promotion programs in order to enhance adaptive emotion regulation strategies.
