CHOICE Review

Hofmann (psychological and brain science, Boston Univ.) provides a useful and nuanced review of emotional life. Grounding his discussion in research, the author demonstrates that emotions are often mixed and change over time, making them difficult to understand and study. He defines individual differences in affective style, as revealed in studies about temperament, and the effects of cultural differences in the mediation of expression of emotion. Hofmann discusses deficits in cognitive processing that result in difficulty in distress tolerance, emotional regulation and clarity, and awareness and understanding of emotion, and he looks at how these issues contribute to behavior and mood disorders. He also reviews the role of emotion in motivation and the role of positive affect in defining happiness, mindfulness, and compassion (and the part these states play in creating and maintaining positive affect). The book includes clinician worksheets and clinical examples, and appendixes provide self-report questionnaires used to monitor emotions, an example of progressive muscle relaxation, and a sample of expressive writing as a therapy technique. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, professionals. --Deborah L. Loers, Akoan Consulting
