Project Details


What if daily stressors could be harnessed to enhance the capacity to cope with future adversity? Our research will delve into the mystery of how young adults (ages 18-25) develop the resilience to thrive amidst the diverse daily challenges of emerging adulthood. Our novel model suggests that by harnessing coping self-reflection and self-insight, daily stressors can serve as opportunities for growth in flexible emotion regulation. We will take the first steps to uncover the secrets of why some individuals excel at regulating their emotions while others struggle. Our research not only promises to expand scientific understanding, but also to pave the way for new educational tools to empower young Australians to master emotional flexibility.
