Emotion regulation refers to influencing which emotions one has, when one has them, and how one experiences and expresses these emotions. This includes attempts to change the magnitude and/or duration of behavioral, experiential, and/or physiological aspects of the emotional response. Emotion-regulatory processes may be either automatic or controlled, or conscious or unconscious, and they may dampen, intensify, or maintain positive or negative emotion, depending on one's goals.
