Handbook of Self-Regulation, Second Edition: Research, Theory, and Applications

Front Cover
Kathleen D. Vohs, Roy F. Baumeister
Guilford Press, Mar 29, 2011 - Psychology - 592 pages
This authoritative handbook comprehensively examines 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 reviews 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.
