Reviewing the state of the science in a dynamic, thriving field, this influential handbook integrates knowledge from multiple psychological subdisciplines. Foremost experts address the neurobiological and cognitive bases of emotion regulation and examine how individuals develop and use regulatory strategies across the lifespan. The social context of emotion regulation is explored, as are personality processes and individual differences. Critical implications are discussed for psychopathology, psychosocial interventions, and health. Including helpful cross-referencing among chapters, the volume describes cutting-edge methods and identifies promising directions for future investigation. As a special bonus, purchasers of the second edition can download a supplemental e-book featuring several notable, highly cited chapters from the first edition.

New to This Edition

“An important and timely addition to the literature….A state-of-the-art review of theory and research on emotion regulation…edited by the multidisciplinary-minded psychologist James Gross (Stanford), whose many research articles and reviews have, in many ways, defined the field….Every essay is illuminating, well written, and supported by a wealth of empirical data. Essential. All readers.”

Choice Reviews


“Gross recruited an impressive array of authors who are well-known for making contributions to the study of affect and emotion....Ideal for graduate courses or seminars on emotion regulation.”

Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology (on the first edition)


“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 (on the first edition)


“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 (on the first edition)


“Gross very nicely captures the range of topics and issues surrounding the topic of emotion and emotion regulation in this edited volume....Each chapter is very readable and thorough....Gross has done an excellent job of integrating and synthesising the various chapters, giving meaning across the entire book and encouraging the contributors to write chapters that will not go stale within a year or two of publication. Attention to this detail is particularly important given the enormous and rapid growth in the field of emotion....Given the scope of the volume, it should have wide appeal to researchers as well as graduate and advanced undergraduate human development, child clinical psychology, psychiatry, and cognitive and affective neuroscience.”

Canadian Psychology (on the first edition)


“Selections are easy to read, comprehensive, and thought provoking....The handbook highlights the work that has been done on emotion regulation and suggests future work that still needs to be done.”

PsycCRITIQUES (on the first edition)


“An up-to-date and authoritative text on emotion regulation. It is written at an appropriate level for both researchers and students interested in this field, regardless of their discipline. Readers will find diverse perspectives that are carefully integrated throughout the text and make for an edifying experience....5 Stars!”

Doody's Review Service (on the first edition)


“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
