Disorders of Affect Regulation: Alexithymia in Medical and Psychiatric Illness
Graeme J. Taylor, R. Michael Bagby and James D.A. Parker
Cambridge University Press


This work provides an entirely new perspective on emotional influences on mental and physical health. The authors present current thinking on the development and regulation of emotions and argue that several common but difficult to treat psychiatric illnesses, including drug addictions, eating disorders, panic disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorders, are a consequence of an individual's inability to regulate distressing emotions through mental processes. They also advance a model in which dysregulated emotions may alter other bodily systems and thereby contribute to the development of physical illnesses and diseases. The book is generously illustrated throughout with clinical vignettes and provides descriptions of innovative therapeutic approaches. This volume will become a valuable and stimulating reference for clinicians and researchers alike.

"Extremely well presented...This book is provocative and thorough...The reference materials and indexes are excellent." Journal of the American Medical Association

"I view this book as a "must" for people interested in alexithymia and emotion regulation, and a "probably should have" for those interested in contemporary models of how emotions influence health." Journal of Psychosomatic Research
