The question `how far can emotions be changed?' lies at the heart of innumerable psychological interventions. Although often viewed as static, changes in the intensity, quality, and complexity of emotion can occur from moment to moment, and also over longer periods of time, often as a result of developmental, social or cultural factors.

Changing Emotions highlights several recent developments in this intriguing domain, and provides a comprehensive guide for understanding how and why emotions change. The chapters are organized into five parts:

* Lifespan Perspective
* Learning Perspective
* Social-Cultural Perspective
* Emotional-Dynamics Perspective
* Intervention Perspective.

In each chapter an internationally renowned scholar presents a concise review of key findings from their own research perspective. The book will be of great interest to researchers in the area of emotion and emotion regulation as well as related fields such as developmental psychology, educational psychology, social, clinical psychology and psychotherapy. It may also be of interest to sociologists, philosophers, and economists interested in learning more about emotions.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I am pleased to recommend this book. Its editors are very distinguished in the field of emotion research, and they have chosen contributors who are well known; not only that, but the big-name people - the stars - are here. Each contributor gives a succinct and up-to-date summary of their theoretical perspective, critical findings, and forward look, making the book more useful than the usual kinds of multi-authored works. If someone wanted an introduction to growing points in emotion research, they could not do better than to read this volume." - Keith Oatley, Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development, University of Toronto, Canada

"This book provides a diverse multidisciplinary collection of thoughtful and well-written chapters by leading researchers. Perspectives covered range from lifespan to learning and from social-cultural to intervention, making this a comprehensive guide for understanding how and why emotions change. This book will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in the field." - Boris Egloff, University of Mainz, Germany
