Emotional dysregulation is a term used in the mental health community to refer to an emotional response that is poorly modulated, and does not fall within the conventionally accepted range of emotive response. The response set is not necessarily negative, and is sometimes seen within the positive range of emotions. Common examples of emotional dysregulation might include rage over a broken plate, or hysterics over a missed appointment.
