We are conducting two affiliated studies in the UK and Australia. Both are taking a lifespan perspective on emotion processing, seeking to explore (using a cross-sectional approach) how age and experience influence the way we respond to or process emotions and emotional situations. Hopefully, we will be able to explore if there are cultural differences (or similarities) as well.

The EPS is part of a set of questionnaires which we are using. These include the Lane Emotional Awareness Scale and the Emotion Regulation Questionnaire.
