A study on the links between early life stress, emotion dysregulation and physiological reactivity to social stress was recently accepted in Psychoneuroendocrinology, one of the most influential psychology journals (impact factor: 5.591). The results of this study show that emotional non-acceptance is one of the mechanisms linking childhood traumatic events and blunted cortisol reactivity. Reference:Cărnuță, M., Crișan, L.
