Summary "An explosion of interest in the application of cognitive psychology to the understanding of emotional disorders has prompted a second edition of this highly regarded book."--BOOK JACKET. "Reviewing the work of the last decade, it looks at how emotion affects the following processes, and how they in turn contribute to emotional disorder: conscious and nonconscious processing; memory bias and memory deficits; attentional bias; schematic processing; judgements; and thoughts and images."--BOOK JACKET. "The second edition provides in particular an exploration of abnormalities in cognitive processing, reviews of key papers that use experimental cognitive psychology to understand emotion disorders, descriptions of the authors' own research in this area, and a theoretical model to explain the phenomena described."--BOOK JACKET
"The book has been written for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate psychologists interested in cognitive models in abnormal psychology, for clinical psychologists using cognitive therapies, and for cognitive psychologists wishing to explore the interface between cognition and emotion."--BOOK JACKET
