About this book

Emotions: basic products of human functioning, intimately involved in physical health, they have been alternately embraced and ignored by generations of researchers and practitioners. Emotion Regulation offers a much-needed corrective to the conventional clinical wisdom, updating the knowledge base on emotions—specifically their expression and inhibition—as they affect stress, health, and well-being. An international team of researchers from a variety of fields sort out conflicting affect/health theories, and provide the latest findings on inter- and intrapersonal functions of emotions while acknowledging the role of individual variables. The book covers conceptual, developmental, and clinical issues and balances core topics with emerging areas of interest, including:

  • Non-expression of emotion in the affective disorders, and innovative approaches to treatment.
  • Five types of alexithymia, and their relationships to health problems.
  • Aggression as maladaptive coping.
  • Emotional suppression in eating disorders.
  • Children’s somatic complaints: an emotional-competence perspective.
  • Attachment perspectives on adult crying.
  • Emotional intelligence: is it really intelligence, and can it really be assessed?
  • Clinical applications of the writing disclosure paradigm.

This wealth of insights makes Emotion Regulation a practice-enhancing work of particular interest to clinical and health psychologists, neuropsychologists, and psychiatrists working in medical settings. The book is comprehensive enough to be a useful postgraduate text for these and related fields.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book represents the key contributions of a conference on emotions, emotion regulation and health research held at Tilburg University in 2003. … it is mainly directed at researchers, clinicians, and graduate students coming from such diverse fields as psychiatry, psychosomatics, behavioral medicine, health psychology, clinical psychology, and medical psychology, who have already considerable insight into the subject matter. Yet, it is written in such a way that it is understandable by everyone." (Marion Ledwig, Metapsychology Online Reviews, Vol. 12 (18), 2008)

"This book arose from a series of conferences and is intended to summarize key contributions to the emotion regulation literature. It includes information from fundamental and basic science, as well as clinical contributions to run the gamut of important topics. There is a broad audience for this book, including psychologists, psychiatrists, developmental researchers, and neuroscientists. A large international cast of well known researchers in clinical and basic emotion research contributes." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2008)

"Editor Vingerhoets … and his co-editors have compiled a series of essays on emotion regulation intended for professionals working in the fields of psychiatry, psychosomatics, behavioral medicine, health psychology, and related fields. … The 15 chapters conclude with extensive reference listings." (SciTech Book News, June, 2008)
