On Understanding Emotion

In sum, this book presents new insights on human relationships and human experience. It is now available in paperback for the first time, with a new introduction by the author.

Emotions--fleeting, insubstantial, changeable, and ambiguous--seem to defy study and analysis. Nothing is more complex, mysterious, and subject to conflicting theories and interpretations than human emotion. Yet the central importance of emotion in human affairs is undeniable. Emotions affect all levels of life--personal, organizational, political, cultural, economic, and religious. Emotions give meaning to life. Emotional disturbances can destroy that meaning. How should emotions be studied? How can an understanding of the inner feelings of individuals illuminate important social interactions and human developments? In his book, Norman Denzin presents a systematic, in-depth analysis of emotion that combines new theoretical advances with practical applications. Based on an intensive, critical examination of classical and modern theoretical research--and on revealing personal interviews in which ordinary people express their emotional lives--he builds a new framework for understanding ordinary emotions and emotional disturbances. Denzin analyzes how people experience joy and pain, love and hate, anger and despair, friendship and alienation--and examines the personal, psychological, social, and cultural aspects of human emotion to provide new perspectives for understanding human experience and social interactions. He offers new insights on the role of emotions in family violence and recommends ways of helping people escape from recurring patterns of violence. And in criticizing current conceptions of emotionally disturbed people, he reveals the nature of their inner lives and the ways they perceive and relate to others. In sum, this book presents new insights on human relationships and human experience. It is now available in paperback for the first time, with a new introduction by the author. Norman K. Denzin is professor of sociology, cinema studies, and interpretive theory at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He was awarded the George Herbert Mead Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction. He is the author of several books, including The Alcoholic Society, Children and Their Caretakers, Hollywood Shot by Shot, Sociological Methods and The Values of Social Science, all available from Transaction.

'A charming, sound, sane map to the world of emotions, the perfect guide' Daniel Goleman, author of EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE. Using 40 years of groundbreaking research, Paul Ekman explores why and when we become emotional and what happens when we do - the external signs and facial expressions. So much of what we communicate is non-verbal. In this very practical book, Paul Ekman helps the reader to observe the underlying, concealed emotions that we can observe in those around us, and understand why our bodies react in the ways they do. EMOTIONS REVEALED also helps the reader to identify why they might feel 'overly' emotional in some situations, and why some people wear their heart on their sleeve whilst others manage to conceal their feelings, even from those close to them. Chapters include 'When do we get emotional?', 'Changing what we become emotional about' as well as 'Anger', 'Fear', 'Surprise' and 'Happiness'. Most importantly, it shows how we can apply this understanding to everyday situations to improve our quality of life.

Emotions are an important part of who we are and how we navigate through life. Unfortunately at times, emotions are so powerful that they will often hijack the decision-making process for us during every stage of life, rendering us helplessor so we think. The good news is that there are ways to take back control of the emotions that have been living our lives for us. In a guidebook to understanding emotions and their impact on our lives, IM Joy begins by sharing a story about Rosa, a woman broken in every way after enduring a divorce. After Rosa realizes she is being lived by her negative emotions, she slowly begins transforming her existence by understanding her feelings, releasing them, and then learning how to live differently. As Joy continues with an alphabetically presented emotions reference list, she provides a definition of each emotion followed by the key to either understanding, overcoming, appreciating, or replacing the emotion with a more positive one, offering all of us hope that we too can transform our lives to create a better future. The Joy of Understanding Emotions shares a poignant story and a roadmap of emotions that will help guide anyone to defeat negative emotions by understanding their nature and effect.

Pride and Joy

"Barish offers advice to parents on how we can restore more joyfulness and pride in our relationships with our children and how we can help children bounce back from disappointment and defeat.

Pride and Joy provides guidance to parents on how they can preserve and strengthen feelings of joyfulness and pride in their relationships with their children, while also nurturing their children's optimism and resilience in the face of life's inevitable disappointments. Kenneth Barish, a child psychologist with over 30 years of clinical experience, begins with a discussion of the importance of the child's emotions - and our own - in optimal child development. In Part I, he presents a child therapist's understanding, supported by scientific research, of healthy and unhealthy emotional development in childhood - what goes right and what goes wrong in the lives healthy and troubled children and families. In Part II, the author discusses four principles of emotional health and character development: Positiveness, Repair, Getting Along with Others, and the development of A Moral Self. Part III addresses problems of daily family life - rules and limits, doing homework and going to sleep, winning and losing at games, our children's reluctance to talk to us, their tantrums and lack of motivation, and their addiction to television and video games. Barish presents recommendations for solving these common problems that so often erode the joyfulness of children and adults' pleasure in being a parent. Over the course of the book, Barish also tackles some of the major issues and controversies of contemporary parenting: Have we created a "culture of indulgence" that is harmful to our society and to our children? Are we over-protective and over-solicitous? Are our children "over-praised?" How can we balance our concern for our children's achievement with their responsibilities as citizens? How can we strengthen their sense of purpose and their commitment to ideals? How can we provide our children with effective guidance and discipline when children, as they inevitably will, misbehave? Barish also informs parents of recent advances in developmental, clinical, and neuroscience research - research that has important implications for children's emotional health. These include the importance of emotional communication in families, the profound importance of interactive play in children's social and emotional development, and what kind of praise is helpful to children. He also discusses the importance of "doing for others" and recent research on television and video game violence, and new knowledge of what really works when parents must discipline our children. This book is written for parents of young children - those struggling with chronic child behavior problems as well as those who simply wish to parent mindfully and compassionately, and who are interested in how the latest developmental research can inform good parenting practices.

Most of us live our lives 'highly educated' but 'emotionally illiterate'! The fact is that while a burger breaks our resolve, an insult overpowers our self-control or a relationship-trouble costs us our careers, we simply remind ourselves that we are not the thinking-beings we pose to be. Inside us lie the real rulers of our mental terrain – emotions. And any pursuit of understanding humans is dangerously incomplete without developing insights into how our emotions work.

As a social work student or practitioner it is essential to be able to understand, recognize and critically reflect on your own emotions and those of others. Consciously or unconsciously, emotions play an integral role in day-to-day decision making, assessments and relationship building, and a lack of emotional awareness and understanding can result in poor practice and a failure to think critically. Practical and engaging, this book encourages you to consider the role of emotions in the light of your own experiences and practice contexts. Key topics include: Understanding what emotions are and how they apply to social work practice Recognizing and reflecting upon the emotional content of practice Incorporating emotions in reflective journals, reports, case notes, critical incident analysis and academic writing Understanding the conscious and unconscious emotions at play in your practice and how these can impact upon the development of positive relationships Enhancing understanding of self and the importance of resilience Understanding the role of emotions in supervision, support and reflection In addition, each chapter includes case studies, to make the link between theory and practice, reflective exercises to encourage the reader to consider the discussion from their own contexts and perspectives. There will also be key learning points to summarise the main ideas presented at the end of each chapter. This is an invaluable book for all social work students and early career practitioners aiming to boost their self-awareness and personal wellbeing, and ultimately improve their practice. “This is a timely publication that reinforces the centrality of emotions and emotional intelligence in social work practice – a must read for all aspiring and practising social workers.” Gillian Ruch, Professor of Social Work, School of Education and Social Work, University of Sussex, UK “What Understanding Emotions in Social Work does is cuts across all layers of the social work curriculum and indeed the “resistance and lethargy’’ regarding ‘’the role of emotions within social work practice” that Ingram refers to. It affords us with a medium through which to explore the substance of that which causes us to react and provides us with a space in which to learn more about what it means to respond; both to ourselves and to those we engage with. It is a book for anyone involved in professional social work education and practice; one that will become a well-thumbed addition to the discerning practitioner’s library. “ Amanda M L Taylor, Senior Lecturer, School of Social Work, University of Central Lancashire, UK “Understanding Emotions in Social Work: Theory, practice and reflection, highlights the importance of emotion in social work practice. Dr Richard Ingram clearly makes the case that the recognition of, reflection upon, responsiveness to, and regulation of emotion, contributes to effective social work practice, as well as, the development of healthy practitioners and practice environments. This book reinforces how social work is primarily a human interactive and relational practice in which emotion and affect have a pivotal role. I highly recommend Understanding Emotions in Social Work as an essential text for students, social workers, supervisors and managers.” Associate Professor Kieran O’Donoghue, Head of School of Social Work, Massey University, New Zealand "This is one of those books that you will keep on your desk and look back at time and time again. It is written in a very accessible style and is easily picked up. Dr. Ingram locates emotions within social work practice and guides the reader through a number of case study's and learning activities to explore this concept in-depth. This has been a very helpful text book during my final placement." Darren Gibson, Social Work Student, Dundee University, UK

This book is the result of collaboration by scholars in developmental psychology and educational sciences from six European Countries (Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom) and Canada and the United States. It provides an overview of innovative research on emotions in learning from a psychological and pedagogical point of view. Indeed, emotions have recently emerged as one of the main factors of learning. With this book, the reader will not only acquire an understanding of emotions in learning but also propositions for interventions that seek to help children, adolescents (pupils, students) and adults (teachers) to improve their emotional experiences and comprehensions in the context of learning and teaching.
