Social Perspectives on Emotion


This volume focuses on theory and research which lends insight into how emotions are distributed, experienced and structured within five broadly conceived institutional areas. These are: medical and health care; family; work and leisure; education; and clinical/counselling. The text seeks to offer the student of social psychology, developmental psychology, cross-cultural psychology, and cognitive anthropology insight into the role that emotional experience plays in understanding society and culture at the close of the 20th century. The volumes in this series illustrate how social organization and private, emotional experience are different phases of the social process. They show the steps by which emotional experience is shaped by social structural, macro-level processes.
