The regulation of emotion is central to human functioning and may play a particular role in the processing of traumatic material. This review provides an outline of the empirical literature surrounding emotion regulation. It then considers this research in relation to the continuum of experiential avoidance, which ranges from the evasion of unwanted internal experience to its non- judgemental acceptance. The main models of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are then introduced and the insight they provide into emotion regulation in the condition is considered. Finally the relationship between experiential avoidance and PTSD is explored and suggestions for future research are made.
