An increasing number of studies have been conducted on the role of expression and regulation of emotion in health. Emotion Regulation addresses the question of these studies from diverse angles while encompassing conceptual, developmental, and clinical issues. Central concepts discussed in this volume that are related to health include: coping styles and aggression, alexithymia, emotional intelligence, emotional expression and depression, emotional expression and anxiety disorders, in addition to the emotional competence in children. The book is unique in describing up-to-date theories and empirical research in the area of emotional expression and health.
Dr. Denollet is Professor of Medical Psychology, Dr. Nyklicek is Assistant Professor of Psychology, Dr. Vinghoets is Professor of Clinical Health Psychology. All three work at the Department of Psychology and Health at Tilburg University, in Tilburg, Netherlands.
