REIS, Aline Henriques et al. Emotion Regulation Checklist (ERC): preliminary studies of cross-cultural adaptation and validation for use in Brazil. Temas psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.1, pp. 77-96. ISSN 1413-389X.

The Emotion Regulation Checklist (ERC) is an instrument for the hetero-evaluation of the level of emotion regulation of children by means of two scales, Emotion Regulation (ER) and Emotional Lability/Negativity (L/N). ER assesses the expression of emotions, empathy, and emotional self-awareness, while L/N assesses the lack of flexibility, anger dysregulation, and mood lability. The aim of this study is to perform the translation and cross-cultural adaptation of the ERC and investigate evidence of the validity of its Brazilian version. Two studies are conducted: Study I - Translation and cross-cultural adaptation of ERC for use in Brazil; and Study II - Investigation of evidence of the validity of the ERC. The sample includes 561 informants (parents and teachers) on children aged 3-12 years old. The exploratory factor analysis (EFA) assumptions are adequate, and the two-factor solution (ER and L/N) is shown to be the most adequate, explaining 57% of the variance (L/N α = .77 and ER α = .73). Subscale L/N is positively correlated with measurements of behavioral problems, while subscale ER is positively correlated with measurements of social skills. The present study provides the first evidence of the validity of the ERC for use in the Brazilian context.
