About this title


In this volume, the first synthesis of work on cognitive interference, leading researchers, theorists, and clinicians from around the world confront a number of important questions about intrusive thoughts and suggest a challenging agenda for the future.


Human cognitive processing is the core issue facing psychologists of multiple orientations and specialties. Our processing of information influences our interpersonal adjustment, behavioral performance, stress levels, sense of control, ability to self-regulate, anxious and depressive states, and social interactions. To their credit, Sarason, Pierce, and Sarason bring together a collection of luminaries to describe and examine the role of cognitive interference in these and other important topics in a seasoned and reasoned analysis.

This important book presents a comprehensive analysis of cognitive interference and research. The individual chapters are exceptionally well written by leading experts in this field, and provide insightful reviews of a research that is spread over a wide range of the psychology literature.

Recognizing that cognitive interference encompasses much more than cognitive phenomena, this volume examines the effects of stress, emotions, and motivational process on thought and behavior. It also provides needed linkages between cognitive interference theory and significant clinical conditions such as anxiety disorders, phobias, and depression, and thus provides highly useful information invaluable for counselors and psychotherapists.

Cognitive Interference: Theories, Methods, and Findings represents the state of the art with respect to cognitive interference. This book, written by various experts in the field of cognition empirically examines the effects of intrusive thinking on behavior, particularly how stress can distort cognitions and performance. Not only does this book examine empirical and applied aspects of cognitive interference, but it also illuminates the theoretical parameters of cognition. This book will prove useful not only to clinicians, educators, and researchers, but to advanced undergraduates and graduates as well.
