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. As a special bonus, purchasers of the third edition can download a supplemental e-book featuring two notable, highly cited chapters from the second edition. 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. *Supplemental e-book featuring selected chapters from the prior edition.

Self-regulated learning (or self-regulation) refers to the process whereby learners personally activate and sustain cognitions, affects, and behaviours that are systematically oriented toward the attainment of learning goals. This is the first volume to integrate into a single volume all aspects of the field of self-regulation of learning and performance: basic domains, applications to content areas, instructional issues, methodological issues, and individual differences. It draws on research from such diverse areas as cognitive, educational, clinical, social, and organizational psychology. Distinguishing features include: Chapter Structure – To ensure uniformity and coherence across chapters, each chapter author addresses the theoretical ideas underlying their topic, research evidence bearing on these ideas, future research directions, and implications for educational practice. International – Because research on self-regulation is increasingly global, a significant number of interntional contributors are included (see table of contents). Readable – In order to make the book accessible to students, chapters have been carefully edited for clarity, conciseness, and organizational consistency. Expertise – All chapters are written by leading researchers from around the world who are highly regarded experts on their particular topics and are active contributors to the field.

Das erste deutschsprachige Lehrbuch der Motivationspsychologie, das sich längst zu einem Standardwerk entwickelt hat, liegt jetzt in der zweiten, vollständig überarbeiteten Auflage vor. Es gibt einen umfassenden Überblick über den derzeitigen Stand der Motivationsforschung, die in der Vielfalt ihrer Ansätze heute nur noch schwer überschaubar ist. Behandelt werden neueste empirische und theoretische Aspekte, methodische Fragestellungen, wichtige Motivationskonzepte und Anwendungsaspekte. Der Text wurde an vielen Stellen gestrafft, um der Entwicklung der Forschung in den letzten 10 Jahren Raum zu geben. Dementsprechend wurden die einzelnen Themenbereiche aktualisiert und ergänzt. Darüber hinaus wurde ein völlig neues Gebiet der Motivationsforschung - die Volitionspsychologie - aufgenommen. Für den Studenten der Psychologie und der Nachbardisziplinen ist dieses Lehrbuch der Motivationspsychologie ein unentbehrlicher Studienbegleiter; für Fortgeschrittene, Lehrende und Forscher hat es sich als Handbuch und Nachschlagewerk bewährt. Aus den Besprechungen der 1. Auflage: "Das Buch bzw. einzelne Kapitel eignen sich hervorragend für Seminare, Prüfungsvorbereitung sowie den theoretischen Teil von Diplomarbeiten."

Far too often, children and youth experience trauma, from rare events such as mass shootings, terrorism attacks, and school lockdowns, to very common occurrences such as bullying, exposure to drugs and alcohol, or various mental health issues. They can experience these events both directly and indirectly (from surfing the internet, watching television, or through their friends). Our children spend a large portion of their day at school interacting with other students, teachers, and school personnel, where these topics are raised and discussed. This edited volume addresses how our teachers and school personnel can help students deal with these potentially traumatic events to reach the most positive possible outcomes. This collection brings together leading experts, including academics and professionals working in the field, to provide the most current evidence-based practices on how to help students who may have experienced or witnessed trauma. It presents research and advice on how to respond to traumatic events regarding bullying; drugs and alcohol; sexual abuse; mental health; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) safety; stranger danger; childhood disruptive behaviors; school shootings and lockdowns; and terrorism. It also includes a chapter focused on how to implement a school safety program. Schools cannot deal with these issues alone; effective strategies must engage family members and the broader community. Hence, the collection includes a chapter on how schools can partner with families and the communities they reside in to bring about positive change. All this work pays close attention to cultural and religious sensitivity, socio-economic variabilities, diversity issues, and developmental stages.

Dr. Mruk has produced a highly readable new edition of his original work on an often misunderstood psychological construct--self-esteem. Mruk's view that self-esteem is a critically important influence on psychological adjustment and quality of life is now an accepted tenet in personality theory. Lack of self-esteem is frequently a precursor to depression, suicidal behavior, and other personality disorders. Nonetheless, the clinical diagnosis of self-esteem problems has lacked the basis of an overarching theory. Dr. Mruk's comprehensive analysis distills the literature on self-esteem into practical and reliable treatment methods for both clinicians and researchers. The new edition contains updated research and current terms, and addresses the self-esteem "backlash." He concludes with worksheets and detailed guidelines for conducting self-esteem building workshops. Added features include: Major theories of self-esteem Chapter on the new positive psychology 150 new references Dr. Mruk has developed a writing style that is successfully oriented toward both academic and clinical audiences in the areas of counseling, education, nursing, psychology, and social work, thus providing much-needed information for teachers, students, and practicing clinicians in a clear, concise way.

Dr. Stuart Shanker revolutioniert die Erziehung unserer Kinder: Seine Methode der Selbstregulierung ermöglicht Kindern aller Altersstufen – und deren Eltern – zu einer besonderen inneren Balance zu finden, einem Zustand von ruhiger Wachsamkeit. Von klein an wirken zu viele Reize auf sie ein, spätestens ab dem Schulalter sind sie einem oft unvorstellbaren Stress ausgesetzt. Das macht unruhig, unkonzentriert, aggressiv und hyperaktiv. Erwachsene reagieren meist mit einer Forderung nach Gehorsam – was leider nur dazu führt, dass der Druck weiter erhöht wird. Dr. Shankers Methode geht an die Wurzeln und bietet eine wirkliche Lösung. So kann Kindern – vom Kleinkind bis zum Teenager – geholfen werden. Jedem einzelnen.
