Background and Aim: Regarding the relatively high prevalence of depression in people with psoriasis, the present study was conducted to determine the role of type D personality and difficulties in emotion regulation in predicting the symptoms of depression in patients with psoriasis.

Methods: This study was a descriptive correlational study. Among patients referred to the Dermatology Clinic of Razi Hospital in Tehran from November to January 2016, 60 patients with psoriasis were selected using available sampling method. The research instruments included type D Personality Questionnaire (DS-14 scale), Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS), and Beck Depression Inventory (Second Edition) (BDI-II). Finally, the data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression tests.

Results: The results of this study showed that there is a significant positive correlation between type D personality and difficulties in emotion regulation with symptoms of depression in patients with psoriasis (P<0/01). Regression analysis with enter method also showed that the two components of type D personality (negative affect and social inhibition), as well as two subscales (lack of emotional awareness and lack of emotional clarity) in difficulties in emotion regulation scale can predict the symptoms of depression in psoriasis.

Conclusion: Type D personality traits and difficulties in emotion regulation can affect the psychological consequences of psoriasis, including depression in people with this disease.
