Summary/Abstract: In terms of emotion regulation, at this moment, is undoubtedly that, although emotions significantly affect our lives in many dimensions (cognitive, social, behavioral), the human being is not under the direct and immediate influence of emotional impulse. The research of emotion regulation, from both determinants and consequences perspective, becomes a realistic objective research and adapted at needs of contemporany human being. This paper, focused only on the affective consequnces of emotion regulation, discovers, in the theoretical framework of the process model of emotion regulation (Gross, 1998a, 1998b, 2002) how the emotion regulation strategies (expressive suppression and cognitive reappraisal) become manifest at wellbeing level. Investigated data reveals the positive impact of cognitive reappraisal (antecedent-focused) on emotional response, felt in expressive and experiential plan. For expressive suppression (response-focused strategie), investigated date prove to be contradictory; Although, the most studies support the negative impact of expressive suppression on wellbeing, there are scientific evidences that places the effects of suppression in the positive consequences category.
