What Is Emotional Dysregulation? - New York City - Washington, D.C.

Clients who struggle with emotional dysregulation will often have difficulty modulating and regulating their emotions, especially when they are faced with environmental stressors or conflicts within their interpersonal relationships. As a defense mechanism to avoid abandonment or pain, they react with heightened bursts of anger, hypersensitivity to specific stimuli, irritability, passive-aggressive behaviors and emotional suffering.

There are many reasons why an individual may experience emotional dysregulation. Some (though not all) can include the experience of historical psychological traumas like childhood neglect, abuse or high-conflict interpersonal relations, diagnosed psychiatric disorders or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
