The Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ) measures the use of two emotional regulation strategies, cognitive reappraisal, and expressive suppression. Although widely used, there is no description of the psychometric properties of the ERQ and its correlations with alexithymia and empathy in a Mexican sample. We examine the psychometric properties o...

Empathic abilities have been shown to be linked with brain structural variations. Since psychotherapists constitute a population that tends to display greater empathic abilities, as shown in psychometric differences in cognitive empathy and emotional regulation, we aimed to identify cortical thickness (CT) differences between a group of professiona...
Article
In a therapeutic environment a proper regulation of the empathic response strengthens the patient-therapist relationship. Thus, it is important that psychotherapists constantly regulate their own perspective and emotions to better understand the other’s affective state. We compared the empathic abilities of a group of 52 psychotherapists with a gro...

The Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ) is widely used to measure the individual differences in two emotion regulation strategies: cognitive reappraisal and expressive suppression. In this study, we examine the psychometric properties of the ERQ (Spanish version) in a Mexican community sample (N = 792). Exploratory and confirmatory factor analys...

Psychotherapists constantly regulate their own perspective and emotions to better understand the other state. We compared 52 psychotherapists with 92 non-psychotherapists to characterized psychometric constructs like, Fantasy (FS) and Perspective Taking (PT), and the emotion regulation strategy of Expressive Suppression (ES), which hampers the empa...

... Our results may support this assumption only for the ACC in men for whom it was connected with the IA, the IFG (affective component-associated brain regions), the dmPFC (related to mentalizing), and with other regions related to social and moral cognition, such as the frontal and temporal poles. As previously suggested, that ACC connectivity may allow regulation of empathic expressions (Kunz et al., 2011;Olalde-Mathieu et al., 2022) and its connectivity with the temporal pole may implicate autobiographical processes and the attribution of social qualities in others (Mercadillo et al., 2017). For women, the ACC was only coupled to the precuneus, whose function involves self-awareness related to emotional valuations, episodic memory (Ochsner et al., 2004;Atilano-Barbosa et al., 2022), imagery about another's mental states (Schurz et al., 2014) and moral judgments (Bzdok et al., 2012). ...
... The compilation of even larger databases will allow for broader and more detailed investigations. For example, it would be important to consider the pragmatic aspects of language ( Rasgado-Toledo et al., 2021 ), which are not specifically valued in the InLang database. Moreover, the current trend is to extend the framework of fMRI paradigms traditionally employed in "laboratory " settings to less controlled and more ecological protocols ( Verga and Kotz, 2019 ). ...
... Die internationale Literatur bestätigte bereits einen Zusammenhang zwischen dem Konzept der Alexithymie und dem Konzept der expressiven Suppression als Teil der Regulation von Emotionen (Brandão et al. 2017;Erkic et al. 2018;Goerlich-Dobre et al. 2014;Kessler et al. 2010;Laloyaux et al. 2015;Olalde-Mathieu et al. 2021;Swart et al. 2009). Insbesondere belegten die Untersuchungen eine signifikante Korrelation zwischen der Schwierigkeit einer Person, Gefühle zu identifizieren und zu beschreiben, sowie der Unterdrückung der Äußerung von Emotionen (Brandão et al. 2017;Kessler et al. 2010;Laloyaux et al. 2015;Olalde-Mathieu et al. 2021;Swart et al. 2009). ...
