Previous research suggests that therapies can help people to regulate their emotions, and on the other hand, traumas can cause impaired emotion regulation. This paper introduces a computational model for simulating the effects of events like traumas or therapies on emotion regulation. This model is an extension of an existing computational model of emotion regulation (Bosse et al. 2007c). A number of simulation experiments has been performed and evaluated.
