Abstract:   (2178 Views)
The aim of this study was to investigate the mediating role of adaptive and maladaptive strategies of cognitive emotion regulation in the relationship between metacognitive beliefs and learning anxiety. The present study was a correlational method. The statistical population was male and female high school students in Shiraz in the academic year of 2019. In this study, 253 students (131 girls and 122 boys) were selected using multistage cluster sampling, and evaluated using the Pekrun Learning Anxiety Questionnaire, Garnefski et al. Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire, and Wells et al Metacognition Questionnaire. The results of the structural equation modeling exhibited that positive metacognitive beliefs and negative metacognitive beliefs predicted the strategy of maladaptive emotion regulation. Furthermore, Negative metacognitive beliefs predicted adaptive emotion regulation and maladaptive emotion regulation strategies predicted learning anxiety. Correspondingly, the results of the structural equation analysis modeling indicated that the maladaptive emotion regulation mediated the relationship between the metacognitive beliefs and learning anxiety.
