From leading authorities, this significantly revised and expanded handbook is a highly regarded reference in a rapidly growing field. It thoroughly examines the conscious and unconscious processes by which people manage their behavior and emotions, control impulses, and strive toward desired goals. Chapters explore such vital issues as why certain individuals have better self-control than others; how self-regulation shapes, and is shaped by, social relationships; underlying brain mechanisms and developmental pathways; and which interventions can improve people’s self-control. The volume also addresses self-regulatory failures and their consequences, with chapters on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, criminality, addictions, and money management challenges.

New to This Edition:
* Incorporates the latest topic areas, theories, and empirical findings.
* Updated throughout, with 21 new chapters and numerous new authors.
* Cutting-edge topics: implicit self-regulation processes, the role of physical needs and processes (such as the importance of sleep), the benefits of dampening positivity, the frequency and consequences of emotional control in the workplace, and self-regulation training.
* Expanded coverage of motivational factors, romantic relationships, and lapses of self-control.

About the Authors

Kathleen D. Vohs, PhD, is Associate Professor of Marketing at the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. She holds a McKnight Presidential Fellowship and is the Board of Overseers Professor of Marketing. Dr. Vohs has more than 120 professional publications, including six books. Her research is concerned with self-regulation, particularly in regard to impulsive spending and eating, decision making, self-esteem, the fear and feeling of being duped, self-escape behaviors, and the psychology of money.

Roy F. Baumeister, PhD, holds the Eppes Professorship in the Department of Psychology at Florida State University. Dr. Baumeister has written nearly 500 professional publications, including 27 books. His research on self-regulation addresses such topics as aggression, eating, sexuality, emotion, limited resources, addiction, free will, physiology, and task performance.

"Self-regulation is emerging as a unifying theme that bridges the biological, behavioral, and social sciences. This book presents a panoramic review of recent theoretical developments and cutting-edge research in the field. The contributors--leading self-regulation researchers--provide an in-depth exploration of the basic mechanisms underlying self-control and their implications for improving people's pursuit of personal, interpersonal, and group goals. This is a valuable resource for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners interested in the science of self-regulation."--Yaacov Trope, PhD, Department of Psychology, New York University

"An all-star roster of the top researchers present their most interesting ideas on self-control: what it is, how it works, how it develops, why some are better at it than others, and why we all experience failures from time to time. This is simply essential reading for any student, scholar, or researcher wanting to understand both the basics and the cutting edge of self-regulation research. This is not a book you will possibly read in one sitting. This is a book so packed with information that you will be coming back to it again and again for years to come."--Nicholas Epley, PhD, Booth School of Business, University of Chicago

"Vohs and Baumeister have assembled world-renowned scholars to offer a comprehensive examination of research, theory, and practice in self-regulation. Capturing the latest thinking on self-regulation and its relation to human behavior, the third edition of the Handbook takes a fresh look at basic theory and at the contributions that research on the topic can make in multiple applied fields. I consider this the essential reader on self-regulation for both experienced and aspiring researchers in areas as diverse as social psychology, behavioral science, and cognitive neuroscience."--Martin S. Hagger, PhD, John Curtin Distinguished Professor, School of Psychology and Speech Pathology, Curtin University, Australia

"If there's one thing all psychologists agree on, it's that self-regulation matters for success. How we can foster it, though, remains an open question. In this volume, foremost scholars Vohs and Baumeister bring together diverse, state-of-the-art views in what can only be described as an integrative masterpiece. I'm certain the third edition of this handbook is destined to be a classic."--David DeSteno, PhD, Department of Psychology, Northeastern University
