SPSS v.2 software was used to perform data analysis through multivariate variance analysis.
Results: Results indicated only the factor of using emotional regulation strategies was significantly different across age decades (P-value=0.002). Pairwise comparison indicated that 20-30 decade was significantly different from 51-60 and 61-70 decades with respective P-values of 0.02 and 0.03; while the 31-40 decade was significantly different from 51-60 and 61-70 decades with respective P-values of 0.03 and 0.01 at the significance level of less than 0.05. The difference was such that the highest emotional regulation was associated with the 61-70 decade with a value of 4.57 and the lowest rate was associated with 19-30 and 31-40 decades with the value of 3.96.
