BARRERO-TONCEL, Virginia Isabel; GONZALEZ-BRACAMONTE, Yaninis  y  CABAS-HOYOS, Kattia Paola. Emotional self-regulation and coping strategies as mediating variables of prosocial behavior. Psicogente [online]. 2021, vol.24, n.45, pp.77-91.  Epub 14-Abr-2021. ISSN 0124-0137.


Adolescence is vital for the development of the human being and is characterized by a series of transformations and demands on a physical, cognitive and emotional level. From this, questions arise about a possible relationship between emotional self-regulation, coping strategies and prosocial behavior in this population.


To systematically review the studies carried out between 2009 and 2019, around emotional self-regulation, coping strategies and prosocial behavior.


A systematic literature review was carried out, under the parameters of Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyzes (PRISMA). A search of studies published in the PubMed, ScienceDirect and Redalyc databases was performed, with the following keywords: Emotional self-regulation, prosocial behavior, coping and adolescents. The inclusion criteria were: empirical articles in English, Portuguese or Spanish published between 2009 and 2019 with samples characterized by healthy adolescents.


A total of 69 studies were identified, of which 9 were chosen as the final sample in the review according to the eligibility, inclusion and exclusion criteria. A significant relationship was found between the variables treated in this text and mediation between emotional self-regulation and prosocial behavior.


Few investigations aimed at studying these three constructs were evidenced, however, through different works it has been possible to demonstrate the relationship between them, their incidence among themselves and the importance of expanding the possibilities of their investigation, measurement and analysis. in different contexts.
