Background and Objective: Worry is a common, and potentially disabling, feature among many individuals with anxiety. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between cognitive emotion regulation styles and thought action fusion with students worry.

Materials and Methods: This a cross- sectional study. Includes 200 students of East Azerbaijan in 2012-2013 academic years that have been selected by cluster sampling method in several phases. Cognitive emotion regulation Questionnaire (CERQ-short), Penn state Worry Questionnaire and revised Thought-Action Fusion questionnaires (TAF-R) have been used for data collection. The data was analyzed by pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis.

Results: The results showed that acceptance (r= -0.221, p= 0.002), positive refocus (r= -0.262, p= 0.001) and refocus on planning strategies (r= -0.322, p= 0.001) were all in significant negative correlation with worry. But catastrophizing strategies (r= 0.379, p= 0.001) had a significant positive correlation with worry. Also responsibility for positive thoughts (r= 0.674, p= 0.001) and responsibility for harm avoidance thoughts (r=0.577, p = 0.001) had a significant positive correlation with worry. The results of multi-variable correlation coefficient with enter method indicated that cognitive emotion regulation strategies and (R2=29%) also thought-action fusion factors has (R2=54.6%). Have a role in explaining worry.

Conclusion: The results indicated correlation between the TAF and maladaptive strategies with worry. Thus, it seems that occurrence of cognitive bias such as TAF and maladaptive strategies increase the individual’s vulnerability to worry.

Key words: Cognitive emotion regulation strategies, Thought-action fusion, Worry
