Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides a brief background on emotion regulation and describes in detail two classes of emotion regulation strategies. Towards that end, the remainder of the chapter is organized into three parts. In the first, it defines what we mean by emotion and emotion regulation, and introduces our approach to understanding them at multiple levels of analysis. In the second, it reviews current research on two kinds of cognitive strategies for regulating emotion: attention deployment and cognitive change. Finally, it considers the implications of this review for future research on emotion regulation.
