“An excellent resource for researchers interested in psychopathology and clinicians interested in the integrative science underpinning therapy. The book's key strength is that it is one of the few to combine transdiagnostic and translational approaches. Chapters on the basic science and theory of emotion regulation across psychological disorders are brought together with chapters on relevant treatment approaches.”

—Edward R. Watkins, PhD, Mood Disorders Centre, School of Psychology, University of Exeter, United Kingdom

“Kring and Sloan correctly point out that emotion dysregulation is a central component of a diverse set of psychiatric disorders and maladaptive behaviors. They have assembled a stellar group of contributors to address this important issue. By highlighting common difficulties across disorders, this superb volume challenges readers' conceptualizations of the distinctiveness of diagnostic categories. This book should be required reading for scientists or students who want to gain a more comprehensive understanding of mechanisms that might underlie psychiatric disturbance.”

“For millennia, humans have struggled to achieve control over their emotions. In Emotion Regulation and Psychopathology, the editors have assembled leading experts to explore the recent outpouring of rigorous scientific work in this area. Wonderfully readable chapters offer state-of-the-art conceptualizations of emotion regulation and apply these concepts to the description and treatment of psychopathology. This book will be a definitive, essential resource for clinicians, graduate students, and researchers.”

—Jonathan Rottenberg, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida

“This authoritative book brings the reader up to date on work on emotion regulation. This is a topic of great importance for psychopathology that has stimulated a large number of recent scientific papers. Researchers will find quite a bit of valuable information; clinicians will, too, including principles to apply in practice. The volume is accessible and very well edited.”
