Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation), Pearson’s correlation coefficient as well as multiple linear regression.
Results: The results showed that there were significant correlations between difficulties in emotion regulation (r=0.51, p<0.001) and psychological well-being (r=-0.39, p<0.001) and hypersexual disorder in the students.
