Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: Although there are a wide variety of psychological diagnoses, problems with emotion regulation cut across many diagnostic boundaries. This book explores emotional regulation and its relationship to psychopathology.
Purpose: The aim is to provide information on regulatory models, consequences of emotion regulation gone awry, and clinical approaches to treating problems with emotional regulation.
Audience: The book is appropriate for mental health professionals and paraprofessionals, as well as students of these disciplines. The editors and contributing authors are well known in the field and a good fit for a book on this topic.
Features: The three sections of this book cover conceptual issues, specific topics on emotion regulation, and treatment of problems with emotion regulation. In the first section, readers will find a good breadth of coverage about relevant topics, such as models of emotional regulation, definitions and terminology, developmental origins, and neurobiology. The second section covers more specific topics that include an interesting look at the role of suppression and the consequences of this mechanism. Environmental context, as well as cognition's role in emotional regulation, is explored. A chapter dedicated to sleep disturbance and its connection with emotional dysregulation takes a biological viewpoint. The treatment chapters are an agreeable balance of empirically supported techniques and novel, cutting-edge techniques that are on the verge of moving from bench science to clinical practice. The only drawback is that the chapters are so focused on the state of the literature for these various techniques that they only minimally delve into their practical application. The references are current and the index is reasonably helpful.
Assessment: This book provides a fresh, alternative perspective on psychopathology that cuts across typical diagnostic boundaries. The information is highly relevant to psychotherapy for a variety of disorders and could be integrated into multiple therapeutic orientations. It is certainly a worthwhile addition, as long as readers realize that the translation from science to application is somewhat weak.
From the Publisher

"An excellent resource for researchers interested in psychopathology and clinicians interested in the integrative science underpinning therapy. The book's key strength is that it is one of the few to combine transdiagnostic and translational approaches. Chapters on the basic science and theory of emotion regulation across psychological disorders are brought together with chapters on relevant treatment approaches."--Edward Watkins, PhD, Mood Disorders Centre, School of Psychology, University of Exeter, United Kingdom

"For millennia, humans have struggled to achieve control over their emotions. In Emotion Regulation and Psychopathology, the editors have assembled leading experts to explore the recent outpouring of rigorous scientific work in this area. Wonderfully readable chapters offer state-of-the-art conceptualizations of emotion regulation and apply these concepts to the description and treatment of psychopathology. This book will be a definitive, essential resource for clinicians, graduate students, and researchers."--Jonathan Rottenberg, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida

"This authoritative book brings the reader up to date on work on emotion regulation. This is a topic of great importance for psychopathology that has stimulated a large number of recent scientific papers. Researchers will find quite a bit of valuable information; clinicians will, too, including principles to apply in practice. The volume is accessible and very well edited."--Joel Paris, MD, Department of Psychiatry, McGill University, Canada
