The purpose of the current study was to examine the link among perceived parenting styles, emotion recognition, emotion regulation, and psychological well-being in terms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and social anxiety symptoms. For the purpose of this study, 522 adults between the ages of 18 and 36 participated in the current study. Multiple regression analyses with split-sample validation method revealed that maternal rejection, emotion recognition, cognitive reappraisal and suppression were associated with social anxiety symptoms; whereas maternal overprotection, emotion recognition and suppression were associated with obsessive-compulsive symptomatology. The findings, and their implications were discussed in the light of relevant literature. (C) 2014 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
