Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Coping with Lack of Control in a Social World offers an integrated view of cutting-edge research on the effects of control deprivation on social cognition. The book integrates multi-method research demonstrating how various types of control deprivation, related not only to experimental settings but also to real life situations of helplessness, can lead to variety of cognitive and emotional coping strategies at the social cognitive level. The comprehensive analyses in this book tackle issues such as:

  • Cognitive, emotional and socio-behavioral reactions to threats to personal control
  • How social factors aid in coping with a sense of lost or threatened control
  • Relating uncontrollability to powerlessness and intergroup processes
  • How lack of control experiences can influence basic and complex cognitive processes

This book integrates various strands of research that have not yet been presented together in an innovative volume that addresses the issue of reactions to control loss in a socio-psychological context. Its focus on coping as an active way of confronting a sense of uncontrollability makes this a unique, and highly original, contribution to the field. Practicing psychologists and students of psychology will be particularly interested readers.
