Book Description

This authoritative Handbook reviews the breadth of current knowledge on the conscious and nonconscious processes by which people regulate their thoughts, emotions, attention, behavior, and impulses. Individual differences in self-regulatory capacities are explored, as are developmental pathways. The volume examines how self-regulation shapes, and is shaped by, social relationships. Failures of self-regulation are also addressed, in chapters on addictions, overeating, compulsive spending, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Wherever possible, contributors identify implications of the research for helping people enhance their self-regulatory capacities and pursue desired goals.

New to This Edition:

  • incorporates significant scientific advances and many new topics
  • increased attention to the social basis of self-regulation
  • chapters on working memory, construal-level theory, temptation, executive functioning in children, self-regulation in older adults, self-harming, goal pursuit, interpersonal relationships, religion, and impulsivity as a personality trait.

Product Description


"Vohs and Baumeister have assembled an impressive range of contributors. Each chapter presents an authoritative viewpoint from leading researchers in the field, and all of the chapters make enjoyable and useful reading. The second edition is particularly timely because of the recent, rapid upsurge of knowledge about the relationship between brain function and self-regulation. This new knowledge is represented not just in specialized chapters devoted to the topic, but throughout the volume, as almost every contributor brings recent advances in cognitive neuroscience to bear. It is difficult to imagine how someone could be a researcher in the field of self-regulation, or a serious student of the topic, without owning a copy of this book." - David C. Funder, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside, USA

"In a fast-developing field with profound implications for understanding and intervening in human behavior, an up-to-date, go-to resource is invaluable. Vohs and Baumeister are eminent scientists who provide exactly that with this volume. Clinicians, prevention specialists, policymakers, and scholars will all find this book a wise and highly useful reference on an essential aspect of human nature." - Thomas Joiner, Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Florida State University, USA

"Temperament is a central construct in the study of human individual differences, yet a volume providing complete, authoritative coverage of the field has been lacking. This exceptional handbook is a 'must have' for researchers, clinicians, educators, and students. The editors and contributors are a who's who of research in temperament, and the scope of the material is unprecedented, ranging from measurement, to biology, to how temperament plays out in everyday life... This is required reading that will guide the field for years to come." - Robert F. Krueger, Hathaway Distinguished Professor, University of Minnesota, USA

This is an excellent compendium of research summaries on the field of self-regulation. It is an invaluable tool for psychologists and educationalists who are interested in the subject and will, hopefully, serve as the starting-point for further investigations.

Many articles on self-regulation that are helpful in translating research to practice. I recommend this book to individuals who work with PTSD, addictions, and other issues that involve self-regulation.
