The role of emotions in interpersonal judgements about health and illness and in social decisions receive particular attention in this book.
The book is organised in three sections: conceptual approaches to the connection between emotion, mood and judgements; extension of the basic theory behind how feelings affect social judgements; and theoretical models and their application in research.
'The best book on emotion and social judgement that I have read in a long time.' - Contemporary Psychology
This series provides a showcase of original contributions of the highest quality as well as thorough reviews of existing theories suitable for advanced students and researchers.
Many will be useful as course texts for higher level study; applied topics are well represented and social psychology is defined broadly to include other psychological areas like social development, or the social psychology of abnormal behaviour.
A reflection of contemporary social psychology, the series is a rich source of information for dissertations, new research projects and seminars.
