  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. Means with the same superscripts within a row are not significantly different. Means with different superscripts within a row are significantly different at the .05 level, as determined by Tukey’s post hoc test
