Disentangling the developmental and conceptual links between emotion dysregulation, self-regulation and internalizing and externalizing difficulties in childhood: a longitudinal investigationDownload

We use data from the UK Millennium Cohort Study to investigate temporal and conceptual relationships between emotion regulation and mental health difficulties in childhood.
