Emotional Dysregulation occurs when students are easily upset and have trouble controlling their emotions. Emotional dysregulation can lead to trouble developing and maintaining quality friendships, rejection from peers and teachers, developing friendships with peers who make poor choices, bullying others, being bullied, receiving out-of-school discipline, school failure, school disengagement, substance abuse, and dropout.

Interventions and supports focused on Emotion Dysregulation focus on impulse control, goal setting, enhancing problem-solving skills, increasing emotion recognition, and anger control strategies to decrease disruptive and impulsive behaviors.
