OBJECTIVE: Preliminary evaluation of the efficacy of a Web-based group
intervention (Online EmReg) to improve emotion regulation (ER) in individuals
with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
DESIGN: Pre-/post-within-subject design with baseline, end-of-treatment, and
12-week follow-up assessments.
PARTICIPANTS: Ninety-one individuals with TBI and deficits in ER.
INTERVENTION: Twenty-four sessions of training in ER skills delivered by group
MEASURES: Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS), Positive Affect
Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS), Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS), Problem
Solving Inventory (PSI), Social Problem Solving Inventory-Revised: Short Form
(SPSI-R:S), and Dysexecutive Questionnaire (DEX).
RESULTS: Significant changes with large effect sizes were found for the DERS at
the 12-week follow-up assessment. Significant and moderate changes were found on
the SWLS, DEX, PSI, and subscales of the PANAS and SPSI-R:S.
CONCLUSIONS: Online EmReg appears to be a promising method of delivering a group
intervention to improve ER following TBI.
