About this book

This second edition provides a review of the current flow research. The first, thoroughly revised and extended, part of the book, addresses basic concepts, correlates, conditions and consequences of flow experience. This includes the developments of the flow model, methods to measure flow, its physiological correlates, personality factors involved in the emergence of flow, social flow, the relationship of flow with performance and wellbeing, but also possible negative consequences of flow. The second, completely new, part of the book addresses flow in diverse contexts, in particular, work, development, sports, music and arts, and human computer interaction. As such, the book provides a broad overview on the current state of flow research – from the basics to specific contexts of application. It presents what has been learned since the beginning of flow research, what is still open, and how the mission to understand and foster flow should continue. The book addresses researchers and students who are interested in flow, as well as practitioners who seek for sound research on flow in their field of expertise.

Corinna Peifer, PhD, is Professor for Work and Organizational Psychology at the University of Lübeck, Germany. Her research is located at the interface between Work- and Organizational Psychology and Psychophysiology, and she is particularly interested in how flow relates to stress and wellbeing. Corinna Peifer is founding member of the European Flow-Researchers’ Network (EFRN), Country Representative Germany for the European Network for Positive Psychology (ENPP) and Vice-President of the German Association of Positive Psychology Research (DGPPF). Stefan Engeser, PhD, teaches psychology at the University of Trier. He also works as a trained clinical psychotherapist. His research focuses on learning and achievement motivation and individual differences in motive strength. As part of his research on motivation he is particularly interested in flow in achievement contexts and in daily life. He has done research on flow for about 20 years after his interest in flow started as a PhD student of Falko Rheinberg (who was the first researcher on flow in Germany). His practical interest refers to motivational aspects in behavioral therapy with flow representing an important source of motivation.
