The relationship between difficulties in emotion regulation and experimental avoidance with depression in patients with vitiligo was evaluated using second version of Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), difficulties in emotion regulation scale (DERS), and Second Edition of Acceptance and Action Questionnaire (AAQ-II). All questionnaires were completed a time by the participants. Results: The average of depression score of the participants in the study was 18.69 ± 13.09.

Also, after removing the confounding effect of independent variables on each other, the relationship between depression score and Limited access to effective emotion regulation strategies score was significant (P < 0.001).
