Emotional expression styles among Depressed and OCD Patients

, ,


Emotional expression of individuals leads to their more effective responses to challenges of life, to better communication with others, and healthier. Considering the prevalence of two common obsessive-compulsive and depression disorders in society and their growth, the purpose of this study was a comparison of emotional expression styles among patients with depression and obsessive-compulsive disorders and normal subjects. The research method was casual-comparative, and 60 subjects (20 patients with depression, 20 patients with OCD, and 20 normal subjects) were chosen through a purposive sampling method for this study. After a diagnosis of their psychiatric disorder, the participants completed self-assessment questionnaires of Emotional Expressivity, King and Emmons’s Ambivalence over Emotional Expressiveness, and Roger and Nesshoever’s Emotion Control. Findings have shown that some OCD patients use ambivalence over emotional expression, while other OCD and depressed patients choose emotional control styles, and normal subjects prefer emotional expression styles. It seems that emotional expression styles can affect mental health and the types of disorders people suffer from.
