Objective: Voluntary and involuntary retrieval of unpleasant memories from emotional memory influences individuals actions. The regulation and management of emotions and emotional memory plays a crucial role on mental health. The study investigates the effectiveness of emotional memory management program (EMMP) on cognitive emotion regulation.
Method: 60 males between 20 and 30 years old at Sadeq-ol-Va’d Cultural center completed the CERQ. Of these, subjects that demonstrated maladaptive emotion regulation strategies were randomly allocated to an experimental or a control group. The experimental group received twelve sessions of training with the EMMP. Research method was pre-and post- test with 90-days follow up. For the data analysis, mean, standard deviation and repeated measure design were used.
Results: Findings support EMMP’s effect on strategies of cognitive emotional regulation (p<0/05) and this effect has been stable at 90-days follow up.
Conclusion: EMMP can improve adaptive emotion regulation strategies and increase mental health.
