This authoritative volume provides a comprehensive road map of the important and rapidly growing field of emotion regulation. Each of the 30 chapters in this handbook reviews the current state of knowledge on the topic at hand, describes salient research methods, and identifies promising directions for future investigation. The contributors—who are the foremost experts in the field—address vital questions about the neurobiological and cognitive bases of emotion regulation, how we develop and use regulatory strategies across the lifespan, individual differences in emotion regulation tendencies, social psychological approaches, and implications for psychopathology, clinical interventions, and health.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: The study of emotions and emotion regulation is a flourishing field in many disciplines. This book describes the recent advances in this field and attempts to provide a connective framework between disciplines on this important topic.
Purpose: There are four main objectives, which include an integration of developmental and adult emotion regulation, bridging basic and clinical science, encouraging cross-disciplinary dialogue on the topic, and providing an up-to-date, authoritative text for educators and researchers.
Audience: The intended target audience includes social scientists, educators, clinicians, and other health professionals. The book is written at an appropriate level for this audience. The editor is accomplished in the field and has gathered some of the leading researchers in the field, including Robert Sapolsky, Mary Rothbart, and Marsha Linehan, to name a few.
Features: The book's six main sections cover biological bases, cognitive foundations, developmental approaches, personality processes and individual differences, social approaches, and clinical applications. It is filled with well organized, useful information. The chapters have major subheadings with sections that are informative, but concise. Short summaries and critiques appear throughout the chapters, and more detailed summaries at the end of each chapter. Throughout the book, figures and illustrations enhance the text, including functional neuroimaging. A wide variety of perspectives is represented, from neuronal animal studies to neuropsychology to developmental psychology. The unique aspect of this book is that these different perspectives are not relegated to their respective sections, but have shared relevance throughout the book. The research is solid and the references are current, even including articles that are still in press.
Assessment: This book achieves its goal of providing an up-to-date and authoritative text on emotion regulation. It is written at an appropriate level for both researchers and students interested in this field, regardless of their discipline. Readers will find diverse perspectives that are carefully integrated throughout the text and make for an edifying experience. It would make a nice companion to the Handbook of Socialization, Grusec and Hastings (Guilford, 2007), for those interested in that aspect of emotion regulation.
From the Publisher

"This handbook is an invaluable resource for researchers and clinicians interested in emotion, mood, and self-regulation. It brings together leaders in diverse fields to explore the biological and psychosocial underpinnings and clinical implications of emotion regulation. A suitable primary or secondary text for a seminar on emotion regulation, this volume is likely to become a classic in the field."--Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, PhD, Yale University

"If human beings are fundamentally in the business of pursuing pleasure and avoiding pain, then this book is about the most fundamental aspect of human life. At long last, the world's experts on emotion regulation have come together to provide a grand tour of the research landscape, and the result is well worth the price of admission. Both students and scientists will find much to be learned in these pages."--Daniel Gilbert, PhD, Harvard University

"The Handbook of Emotion Regulation is a handbook in the finest sense--it is comprehensive, scholarly, interesting, and current. Its scope is impressive, moving from theory to clinical application, from cellular to societal levels of analysis, and across the lifespan from childhood to old age. Students will find it accessible, and anyone whose work touches on emotion regulation will find it eminently useful."--Susan Folkman, PhD, Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

"Emotion regulation is a dynamic, burgeoning research topic. Its siren call toward happier, less conflictual, even healthier lives is hard to resist. Gross has brought together a formidable array of experts to illustrate the ferment, diversity, and uncertainty of the field. This handbook is unique in its coverage. Many of the chapters take adult psychology as their starting point, but ample space is devoted to neural processes, cross-species comparison, and developmental changes in emotion regulation, as well as individual differences and their clinical implications. There are also unexpected but welcome chapters examining the impact of cultural and religious traditions. A comprehensive and thoughtful progress report from acknowledged leaders. Students will enjoy the chance to sample the field's variety and excitement."--Paul L. Harris, PhD, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"An outstanding contribution to the field of emotion research and theory. The chapter authors include nearly all of those who have been doing recent, cutting-edge empirical and theoretical work in this area, and their contributions are clear, succinct, and comprehensive in scope. This is truly a handbook, addressing topics ranging from the biological bases of emotion regulation to innovative clinical applications, and everything in between. Several authors address relevant topics that are not typically covered in books on emotion (e.g., the neurogenetics of emotion regulation). This volume will serve as an important resource for investigators and theorists in emotion research, for professionals who seek to understand and apply the growing body of knowledge regarding emotion regulation, and for graduate students in neuroscience, neuropsychology, cognitive, developmental, personality, social and clinical psychology and related biological, social, and behavioral sciences. It will be required reading for students in my graduate emotion seminar."--Alfred W. Kaszniak, PhD, Departments of Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry, University of Arizona

Journal of the American Medical Association

"This book presents impressive multidisciplinary research addressing one of the most interesting conundrums of the human condition; i.e., how we can simultaneously control and be controlled by our emotions....This volume is a valuable reference for researchers and clinicians interested in either healthy or unhealthy management of emotions. It also would be an excellent text for graduate seminars devoted to the topic of emotions....Confirmed in each and every chapter of this volume, emotion regulation is extraordinarily complex and should be approached in the mental health field with this perspective. Although the field is far from the point of extracting simple evidence-based therapies for emotion-related disorders, this excellent book places clinicians and researchers on a more realistic path toward that laudable goal."--Journal of the American Medical Association

"Selections are easy to read, comprehensive, and thought provoking....An excellent selection of readings that will inspire researchers in the field....The handbook highlights the work that has been done on emotion regulation and suggests future work that still needs to be done in order to understand the various facets of emotion regulation."--PsycCRITIQUES
Metapsychology Online Reviews

"Provides an all-encompassing view of the brain process of emotion regulation, including recommendations and theoretical bases to be used in clinical practice. The book is a particularly useful tool for any clinician working with patients with impulse-control disorders or frontal-lobe traumatic brain injury."--Metapsychology Online Reviews
Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology

"Gross recruited an impressive array of authors who are well-known for making contributions to the study of affect and emotion....The writing and editing is superior....Ideal for graduate courses or seminars on emotion regulation."--Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology
