The management of other's emotions there two concepts advancing our current understanding of how, why, when, and where the control of other people's emotions happen and who is involved in these processes. These two concepts are interpersonal emotion regulation and social regulation. Both have similarities and are often utilized interchangeably in various literature, despite distinguishable differences between them—the resulting overall outcome changing the other person's emotion through upward or downward emotion regulation. Emotion regulation as science has been one of the fastest-growing constructs in psychology. The field of emotion regulation primarily focuses on a personal strategy [intrapersonal] to alleviate what troubles a person through self-regulation and, as an intrapersonal strategy, been enriched with the models, processes, tools, assessments, and emotional regulatory approaches that are associated with effectiveness. The management of other people's emotions, however, is a newer phenomenon for the literature, and research offers insight into how the management of other people's feelings is an effective tool for upward and downward emotional direction. Managing emotions independently contributes to our own emotional intelligence and our ability to manage other people's emotions effectively. Events of situations may cause a need for a person to seek out another for emotional management. The roles for which a person plays in society and or at work may be why a person may utilize emotional management skills or wish to acquire skills because of the need for them or why a person seeks out emotional management. Advancing emotion regulation through interpersonal emotion regulation and social regulation is necessary to understand better. Emotional management at work and in situations at work, in life, and practices clinical could provide advances to psychology and emotion regulation. Recent scientific findings suggest (e.g., how the brain functions when emotion regulation is in use neuroscience, brain imaging, fMRI) similar executive functions of the brain operate the same during self-regulation and in these processes of regulating other people’s emotions is only one of several advancements for which need further discussion and research efforts. Therefore, this research proposal seeks those interested in advancing the literature through existing works, newer works, reexamining work, future projections, or updating the literature relative to these topics.
