Background and Aim: The role of human health in community health and the importance of having a high level of mental health either with or without any other disorder is considerable. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the role of hostility and ambivalence in expressing emotion in predicting somatization symptoms among the students.
Materials and Methods: This is a survey-applied study and all students of University of Tehran (50,000) were the study population. Based on random sampling and the Corcoran formula, 384 individuals were selected as the study sample. Ambivalence questionnaires including King and Ammons Emotional Expressions (1990), Physicalization Questionnaire (PHQ-15) by Kornek et al. (2002), and Hostility Questionnaire of Margery, Cook and Mendelssohn (1976) were used for data collection. The SPSS was used to analyze the data.
Results: The concurrent regression results indicated that  hostility and  ambivalence  accounted for 33% and 38% of somatization symptoms respectively. Additionally, ambivalence in expressing emotion can play a role in prediction of somatization symptoms.
Conclusion: Among hostility and ambivalence in expressing emotion, the ambivalence variable is a stronger predictor in somatization symptoms variance. Therefore, reduced ambiguity in expressing emotion is associated with greater empowerment and less physical arousal.
