Abstract

Literature suggests that the emotional reactivity and learned helplessness individual factors is distress tolerance. Specifically, in the context of self-damaging behavior, further research is required to identify the role of emotional reactivity and learned helplessness. This study is based on the field survey and data was collected from 108 respondents of UAE that measures learned helplessness, emotional reactivity, distress tolerance and self-damaging behavior. Structural Equation Modeling was applied to achieve the results. Findings suggest that together emotional reactivity and learned helplessness can explain of the observed variance in distress tolerance. Further, distress tolerance has significant impact on self-damaging behavior. These results will have implications for researchers studying distress tolerance and self-damaging behaviors, clinicians treating clients with difficulty in managing distress or with self-damaging behaviors. This study may suggest that emotional reactivity could be an important target of clinical involvement and preemptive learning.
