Aim and Background: In recent years, problems related to emotion regulation inability have led many researchers to study and determine variables associated with this issue. One of these variables is family functions. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to predict difficulties in emotion regulation based on developmental family functions. Methods and Materials: This was a descriptive, correlational study. The study subjects included 201 parents of elementary school students in the academic year 2014-2015 in Tehran, Iran. The participants were selected through convenience sampling. The participants completed the Developmental Family Function Assessment Questionnaire (DFFAQ) and Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS-16). Data analysis was performed using Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis in SPSS software. Findings: The results showed that the dimensions of developmental family functions had significant relationships with some components of difficulties in emotion regulation. Moreover, of the 7 dimensions of developmental family function, 3 dimensions (logical thinking, two-way interaction, and representations of ideas) had predictive power for the components of lack of emotional clarity, emotional rejection, and impulse control and repression. Logical thinking, with the explanation of 10% of variance in the score of lack of emotional clarity, had the highest coefficient of determination for difficulties in emotion regulation. Conclusions: From the findings of this study, it can be inferred that dimensions of developmental family functions were important predictors of difficulties in emotion regulation. Therefore, their consideration in emotion regulation therapy and family education programs can lead to decreased emotion regulation problems and more effective outcomes.
