  1. Nonaccept DERS nonacceptance of emotional responses, Goal DERS difficulties engaging in goal-directed behavior, Impulse DERS impulse control difficulties, Awareness DERS lack of emotional awareness, Strategies DERS limited access to emotion regulation strategies, Clarity DERS lack of emotional clarity
  2. a Sample SD for DERS scales are 6.83, 4.50, 6.13, 5.43, 7.00, and 4.38 for Nonaccept, Goal, Impulse, Awareness, Strategies, and Clarity, respectively
  3. b Variance estimates for model implied means are held constant across profiles. Model-implied SD for DERS scales are 5.89, 3.30, 5.01, 4.08, 4.87, 3.16 for Nonaccept, Goal, Impulse, Awareness, Strategies, and Clarity, respectively
