A stepwise regression was used to analyze of findings.
Results: Regression analysis showed a significant positive correlation between immature and neurotic defense mechanism with non-adaptive emotion regulation strategies and there is a significant negative correlation with adaptive strategies of cognitive-emotional regulation. In addition, there is no significant relationship between mature defense mechanisms with adaptive and non-adaptive cognitive-emotional regulation strategies.
