Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This handbook serves as a significant tool for those seeking to understand the complexities of self-regulation. Hoyle (Duke Univ.) has brought together an impressive contingent of authors and developed a work that balances theoretical foundations and practical applications. The contributors do a masterful job of integrating what have often seemed disparate findings in the self-regulation literature...Those working with individuals who have self-regulatory issues are likely to find this volume particularly useful. Summing Up: Highly recommended." (Choice, 1 May 2011)
