The Pacer Study

The PACER Study examines different emotion regulation-oriented interventions for young adults at risk for developing negative coping skills.

Emotion regulation refers to an individual's ability to modulate an emotion or emotions as they arise. Individuals begin to learn how to manage, express, and cope with emotions during childhood. During early adulthood (ages 18 to 25), many individuals undergo vast changes in emotion regulation.

Some young adults lack the strategies needed to safely manage distress. To address this, researchers at UConn developed The PACER Study to test a more individualized intervention focused on developing effective emotion regulation strategies.
