Abstract

Presentation 2 Perceived self-efficacy beliefs of expressing positive emotion in adolescents: A validation study of the Perceived Self-Efficacy in managing Positive Affects Questionnaire (PSEMPAQ). Vecchio, Giovanni Maria, 1 Milioni, Michela, 1 Perucchini, Paola, 1 Caprara, Gian Vittorio, 2 1 University of Roma Tre 2 Sapienza University of Rome The aim of the present study is to examine the psychometric properties of a new scale of self-efficacy beliefs to expressing positive emotion in adolescents, previously investigated by Gerbino and colleagues (2015) in young adults. In particular, the PSEMPAQ includes two subscales of expression and two subscales of coping: the expression of affect and expression of pride, the use of positive memories, and the use of humor to cope with stressful life events.
