The development, maintenance, and treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are all intrinsically linked to the processes of emotion regulation. Although research investigating emotion regulation in PTSD has primarily been conducted in Western populations, cross-cultural research suggests that there are cultural differences in the ways in which individuals self-regulate their emotions. However, to date, research has not examined cross-cultural differences in emotion regulation in the context of PTSD. This thesis, therefore, aimed to investigate the interaction between culture and emotion regulation in PTSD.
