Background and Aim: Emotion Regulation checklist (ERC) is a 24-item scale for measuring children’s emotion regulation. The aim of the current study was to investigate psychometric properties of the Persian version of the ERC in preschool children.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis were used to investigate the factor structure of the ERC. Convergent and divergent validity were examined using the correlation of ERC with the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL). One hundred fifty preschool children aged 4-5 years were selected using the convenience sampling method. Data were analyzed using SPSS version 25 and LISREL version 8.8.
Results: Exploratory factor analysis revealed two factors namely, lability/negativity and adaptive regulation, which explained 63.90% of the total variance of the scale. The confirmatory factor analysis results also showed a good fit for the model. The adaptive regulation subscale showed significant negative relationship with the CBCL components, while the lability/negativity subscale had a significant positive relationship with the CBCL components.
Conclusion: The present study confirms the two-factor structure of the ERC and provides new evidence for its reliability and validity.
