Emotion research has become a mature branch of psychology, with its own standardized measures, induction procedures, data-analysis challenges, and sub-disciplines. During the last decade, a number of books addressing major questions in the study of emotion have been published in response to a rapidly increasing demand that has been fueled by an increasing number of psychologists whose research either focus on or involve the study of emotion. Very few of these books, however, have presented an explicit discussion of the tools for conducting research, despite the facts that the study of emotion frequently requires highly specialized procedures, instruments, and coding strategies, and that the field has reached a place where a large number of excellent elicitation procedures and assessment instruments have been developed and validated. Emotion Elicitation and Assessment corrects this oversight in the literature by organizing and detailing all the major approaches and instruments for the study of emotion. It is the most complete reference for methods and resources in the field, and will serve as a pragmatic resource for emotion researchers by providing easy access to a host of scales, stimuli, coding systems, assessment tools, and innovative methodologies. This handbook will help to advance research in emotion by encouraging researchers to take greater advantage of standard and well-researched approaches, which will increase both the productivity in the field and the speed and accuracy with which research can be communicated.

About the Author:


James A. Coan is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and the Neuroscience Graduate Program at the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville. His research focuses on the neural systems supporting emotional communication and regulation, with an emphasis on the roles these systems play in psychopathology and interpersonal relationships.

John J. B. Allen is Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Neuroscience at the University of Arizona, in Tucson. His research interests include the etiology and treatment of mood disorders.

Review:


"Methods and measures move science. Coan and Allen's wonderful book should therefore accelerate the already fast-moving field of affective science. The methods include film, photos, faces, music, conversations, and dyadic tasks. The measures use voices, expressions, brain scans, psychophysiology, diaries, narratives, self-reports, and more--expertly done." --Gerald L. Clore, Commonwealth Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia


"Drs. Coan and Allen have assembled an impressive list of contributors from the field of emotions research. The breadth of the contributions makes this volume a must for any serious emotions scholar. To combine in one book both the methods of elicitation and the methods of assessment surely makes this a unique reference for students and researchers. From the clear, authoritative chapters on such topics as the use of films and pictures to elicit emotion to the chapters on cross-cultural assessment and the psychophysiology lab, this book provides the big picture as well as the nuts and bolts necessary to conduct research on emotions in the era of neuroscience." --Julian F. Thayer, Ohio Eminent Scholar Professor in Health Psychology, Ohio State University


"The scientific investigation of emotion requires that emotions be controlled experimentally and measured comparably across time, contexts, and laboratories. These dual requirements have proven difficult to fulfill despite concerted efforts for decades to do so. Progress has been slowed by the absence of a thorough treatment of available methods and measures. By directly addressing these dual problems in a comprehensive volume, the Handbook of Emotion Elicitation and Assessment is destined to become a landmark contribution to the scientific study of emotion." --John T. Cacioppo, Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago
