Editorial Reviews

Review

"Extremely well presented...This book is provocative and thorough...The reference materials and indexes are excellent." Journal of the American Medical Association

"I view this book as a "must" for people interested in alexithymia and emotion regulation, and a "probably should have" for those interested in contemporary models of how emotions influence health." Journal of Psychosomatic Research

Book Description

An entirely new perspective on how emotions influence mental and physical health. The authors present recent thinking about the development and regulation of emotions, and argue for a model in which several common but difficult to treat psychiatric and physical illnesses are a consequence of an inability to consciously regulate distressing emotions. Generously illustrated throughout with clinical vignettes and including descriptions of innovative therapeutic approaches, this book offers both a stimulating and practical reference.

I am a graduate student in physics but I have taken a number of courses in psychology. Although these credentials may not qualify me to give a formal review of the said book, I think I am entitled to offer a decent opinion. The book, like many science oriented books, tends to focus on studies and correlations a lot. This is very interesting for a scientist, but even a scientist likes to know about the phenomenological aspects of topics. The book can get a little "thick" at times, but it did shed light on a number of topics I had previously studied. I thought it was done pretty well.
