Changing Moods provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to mood and attempts to integrate theory and existing findings to present the current state-of-the-art in the psychology of mood.

Arguments are illustrated by reference to research findings and everyday examples of how mood operates in real-world situations. Key Topics Include: similarities and differences between mood-states, factors influencing mood and mood change, mood variation over time, deliberate and automatic mood regulation, clinical theories and therapies relating to dysfunctional mood.
