Introduction: Emotional disorders had immense impact on rehabilitation in the traumatic brain injury patients. This study is to investigate correlation of difficulties in emotional regulation in the mild traumatic brain injury patients compared with that in the normal people.

Materials & methods: This prospective cohort study was carried out on 72 mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) victims and 72 other normal individuals in Shahid Beheshti hospital in Kashan city. Difficulties in Emotion Regulation (DERS), Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) scales, demographic data, and related neurological questionnaires were used. The data were analyzed using T test, Chi square and multivariate linear regression.

Findings: The results of this study showed that mean standard deviations for emotional regulation were 112.6±21.8 and 93±14 in the TBI and control groups, respectively (P<0/001). In terms of PANAS, no significant difference was observed in both groups (P<0/001). Linear regression analysis in the TBI group demonstrated that (&beta;=20/4, P<0/001), age (&beta; – 0/339, P -0/01), familial history of mental disorder among first-grade relatives (&beta;- -9/419, P-0/01), economical status (&beta;-6/108, P-0/04), and history of underlying disease (&beta;-15/014, P-0.00) were predictor.

Discussion & Conclusions: Linear regression analysis of a few variables showed that being included in the patients group is the main effective variable on the difficulties in emotional regulation. Psychological cognitive rehabilitation therapy is one of the crucial meditation interventions in patients with traumatic brain.
