Chronic pain can disrupt everyday life and shatter beliefs about the world. Shattered beliefs may be rebuilt, either positively or negatively, leading to posttraumatic growth (PTG) or posttraumatic depreciation (PTD). According to a transdiagnostic emotion regulation perspective, these phenomena are associated with coping strategies and emotions related to the body, self, others, and the world. Because PTG and PTD can coexist, this study aims to compare different profiles of rebuilt beliefs based on emotions, emotion regulation, and psychopathology.
