Course Description: Depression and social anxiety disorder commonly occur together and are also common among adolescents. The primary objective of this study was to gain an increased knowledge of the nature of individual differences in emotion regulation deficits among adolescent with symptoms of social anxiety disorder and depression and to determine whether repetitive negative thinking functions as a transdiagnostic factor across these disorders. Participants from a diverse sample of adolescents (N=1065) completed measures that assessed emotion regulation, as well symptoms of social anxiety and depression. Adolescents with high levels of social anxiety and depression symptoms reported decreased emotional awareness, dysregulated emotion expression, and reduced use of emotion management strategies. Structural equation modelling methods were used to examine whether repetitive negative thinking functions as a transdiagnostic factor. The hypothesized model with repetitive negative thinking modelled as a transdiagnostic factor exhibited a better fit than an alternative model, rumination and worry were modeled as separate predictors of symptomology in the latter. Emotion regulation deficits and repetitive negative thinking play a central role in the development of psychopathology among youth with anxiety and mood disorders.
