The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (Garnefski, Kraaij et al., 2002), using a sample of adolescents from Egypt, aged 13, 14 and 15 years. The results indicate that the nine-factor model was successful, obtaining adequate fit indexes: ?2, df=381.3, ?2/df=5.5, CFI=.92, TLI=.92, RMSEA=.05 and GFI=.93. Model fit indices showed acceptable goodness of fit values for nine factors structure of 36 items of the scale. Standardized factor loadings for one factor structure of Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire have values between .39 and .75 and all t values are significant for all of the items. According to Spearman correlation analyses, there were significant positive correlations between the adaptive cognitive emotion regulation strategies and all factors of Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale. However, negative correlations were noticed between the maladaptive cognitive emotion regulation strategies and all factors of Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale. The test-retest reliability was acceptable. The test-retest coefficient for the total scale score was .92.
