The Difficulty in Emotional Regulation (DERS) Scale assessment indicates to your clinician (Dr Jerrie) your emotional regulation skills. This screening tool helps identify possible growth areas in terms of your emotional responses. Successful emotional regulation is key to your well-being and treatment.
NB – The Emotional Regulation (DERS) assessment is not a diagnostic tool and cannot be viewed as conclusive unless discussed with your clinician. It is a screening tool and completely one-sided. A limited frame of reference, state of mind and intentions can skew the results.
