New Edition of Handbook Published by Gustavus Alum, Dr. Kathleen Vohs

Posted on October 21st, 2016 by


Gustavus Alumna, Dr. Kathleen Vohs ‘96, has come out with a new and improved edition to her and co-editor Roy Baumeister’s, “Handbook of Self-Regulation: Research, Theory, and Applications.”

Kathleen D. Vohs, PhD, graduated from Gustavus in 1996 and is currently a professor at the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota.

The handbook is highly regarded amongst professionals and is a valuable resource for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in the up-and-coming field of self-regulation.

The new edition has many different new features ranging from the latest topics, theories, and findings; to self-regulation in the presence of motivation, romantic relationships, and self-control; as well as cutting-edge topics such as implicit self-regulation processes and self-regulation training. It also comes with a downloadable supplemental e-book featuring two highly referenced chapters from the second edition on self-efficacy and promotion and prevention systems.

“If there’s one thing all psychologists agree on, it’s that self-regulation matters for success. How we can foster it, though, remains an open question. In this volume, foremost scholars Vohs and Baumeister bring together diverse views in what can only be described as an integrative masterpiece. I’m certain the third edition of this handbook is destined to be a classic.” – David DeSteno, Northeastern University
