Display Rules; Emotional Regulation; Trauma
The present work provides a synthetic review of the literature on emotion regulation, display rules, and trauma, and examines how these constructs may influence or relate to one another. The literature review shows that previous research has revealed how trauma affects the use of emotion regulation; that emotion regulation is a part of the display rule system; and that experience of trauma can influence adherence to display rules. In light of these previous findings, this thesis proposes an original model that incorporated the three variables into a system, wherein trauma directly and indirectly influences the ways in which emotions are regulated and display rules are adhered to.
