"The first edition of this handbook defined a major field of study, and the second edition is even better. Gross--the worldwide leader in the study of emotion regulation--has done a masterful job of pulling together the best and newest work in this area. People try every day in many ways to manage their emotions; the volume provides an informative, authoritative overview of research about their successes and failures. Anyone interested in the management of emotion, indeed anyone interested in human emotions generally, will find this a fascinating read and an indispensable resource. Recommended for everyone from students to expert researchers."--Roy F. Baumeister, PhD, author of Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength "This is the definitive book on emotion regulation, the bridge between cognitive and affective neurosciences. An all-star array of researchers synthesize psychological and neuroscience perspectives, covering everything from child development to aging, individual variation to psychopathology. A valuable and comprehensive volume that sums up where we are and excites us about where we are going."--John D. E. Gabrieli, PhD, Grover Hermann Professor of Health Sciences and Technology and Cognitive Neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology "This second edition represents much more than a mere updating of chapters. There have been many developments in the field since the publication of the first edition, and the volume captures them all! Gross presents exciting theories, methodological approaches, and applications for clinical intervention. Not only is the Handbook the go-to volume for the latest in emotion regulation, but it also will serve as a useful resource for clinicians, with sections on psychopathology, interventions, and health. The writing is uniformly very good, making this the kind of book that people will find themselves reading more of than perhaps they originally intended."--Ann M. Kring, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley "The study of emotion regulation has surged dramatically in the last decade. Researchers, teachers, and students who feel overwhelmed should take heart. This superbly edited handbook offers both a framework and a comprehensive overview of the process of emotion regulation. It explores biological, cognitive, social, and developmental aspects, as well as implications for psychopathology, health, and intervention. The second edition of the Handbook will serve to guide and further energize this dynamic field."--Paul L. Harris, DPhil, Harvard Graduate School of Education
