The goal of this research was to develop and validate an Italian version of the Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ: Gross & John, 2003). In an Italian undergraduate sample (N=416), the two-scale ERQ structure was confirmed by Confirmatory Factor Analysis, and each of the two scales (Reappraisal and Suppression) showed good internal consistency. The Italian ERQ also showed predicted associations with measures of coping, affect, personality, and social functioning. Specifically, Reappraisal was positively correlated with positive reinterpretation, positive affect, and extraversion, but negatively correlated with negative affect and neuroticism. Suppression, by contrast, was negatively correlated with venting of emotions, positive affect, extraversion, social support and social diversion. Taken together, these findings suggest that the Italian ERQ is a reliable and valid measure that inherits the nomological network of associations from the original version of the ERQ.
