Editorial Reviews

Review

"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


"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
(Metapsychology Online Reviews 2009-06-20)

"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
(Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology 2009-06-20)

"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
(PsycCRITIQUES 2009-06-20)

"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
(Journal of the American Medical Association 2009-06-20)

Format: Hardcover
This handbook is the first book that offers a true comprehensive, integrative, and thorough review of the field of emotion regulation. It is bound to become the primary resource for scholars and non-scholars who are interested in emotion regulation and the main reference text in the field. Although there are some published books on the topic, such books tend to selectively highlight only one or two perspectives. In contrast, this book includes 30 chapters that together represent multiple distinct perspectives, representing different disciplines within and even outside of psychology. These chapters are written by leading experts and provide clear and insightful reviews of existing methods and approaches. The chapters also present cutting-edge research. Another impressive quality of the handbook is that although chapters are incredibly diverse with respect to their theoretical and methodological approaches, they are nonetheless elegantly tied together. Each chapter provides definitions of common core concepts, addresses common core questions, and many make a reference to common theoretical models in the field. Gross' Handbook of Emotion Regulation is an important resource to those who are interested in learning about adaptive (and maladaptive) ways to regulate emotions in both the self and in others. Furthermore, it is a must-read for anyone who wishes to gain a deep and comprehensive understanding of the field, as it is explored from a scientific perspective.

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By E. P. Dowd on August 8, 2007
Format: Hardcover
The field of emotion regulation is a difficult one to adequately cover, because it impinges on so many aspects of life, and is such a critical but little understood part of what it means to be human. Until now, there has been no really good, single source for those wanting to educate themselves on what is known about when and how we control our emotions and when and how they control us. Although designed primarily to cover research findings in emotion regulation for an academic audience, this book will be a valuable resource to anyone interested in understanding how we control and manage our emotions. Insightful, well-written chapters by leading experts on nearly every aspect of emotion control, including cutting-edge findings in neuroscience and therapeutic innovations, described the ideas , controversies, and research in at a level of detail and depth that made for an extremely thought-provoking and satisfying exploration. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and recommend it to students and teachers of psychology, as well as anyone looking to understand more about their own feelings and how to control them.

Format: Hardcover
This book is really interesting. Emotion regulation is one of the most important goal in psychotherapy, because maladaptive emotions are at the origin of a number of psychiatric disorders, more notably anxiety and depression. Emotion disregulation is also one of the most invalidating symptoms in personality disorders like the borderline.
The book analyzes the problem from different point of views, mainly in the perspective of the integrative cognitive neuroscience, but also on the developmental perspective, the psychodinamic point of view and the social psychology.

Format: Paperback
This is hands down the best book on emotion and emotion regulation on the market. I have an NIH career award in emotion and risk, and I repeatedly return to this book. Importantly, it presents the field in a comprehensive and clear manner that isn't seen in similar books (I have them all...).

It covers the literature in great depth, and makes you really think about emotions, and what they mean. If you use google Scholar to search, this book will come up time and time again.

Dr. Gross is the leading expert in this area, and the other authors are of similar caliber. I've read every page several times. The book is top notch, from cover to cover. Each time I re-read a section, I glean new understanding.

Buy the book, read it front to back, and frequently revisit the chapters as your understanding in this area grows.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This handbook is impressive in its scope, spanning across multiple domains of psychology and biology. It presents cutting-edge research in a digestible format, and provides an invaluable resource to researchers and clinicians alike.

The introductory "Conceptual Foundations" chapter alone is worth the price of admission. I return to it frequently, and I think it is the clearest statement of the content and goals of emotion regulation research available.

As is typical with multi-author textbooks, the chapters are a bit uneven. Some are reviews of well-developed subfields in emotion regulation, others are (intelligently) speculative (e.g. Bargh & Williams - more has been found on automatic emotion regulation since the handbook appeared), and others present interesting new data. The book is most successful when the authors share the editor's clarity of vision with regard to emotion regulation research. Perhaps as a result of this, the chapters which Gross co-authors are among the best here.
