This study investigated the relationships among adequate self-disclosure, recipients' positive responses, and depression by focusing on cognitive reappraisal. The results of path analysis showed that adequate self-disclosure was positively associated with recipients' positive responses. Cognitive reappraisal and recipients' positive responses were positively associated with cognitive reappraisal. Cognitive reappraisal was negatively associated with depression. These results suggest that cognitive reappraisal might be an important component in examining the relationship between self-disclosure and depression.
