Abstract

This chapter describes some ways in which the psychology of cognition, emotion, and memory can or might be applied in several practical settings. Recent years have seen a rapid growth in research on cognition and emotion and this research has been summarized in a variety of sources (e.g., Ellis & Ashbrook, 1988, 1989; Ellis, Varner, & Becker, in press; Fiedler & Forgas, 1988; lsen, 1984; Kuiken, 1989; Williams, Watts, MacLeod, & Mathews, 1988). Moreover, a new journal appeared in 1987, Cognition and Emotion, which is entirely devoted to relations among emotional states and the full range of cognitive processes typically studied by psychologists. Ellis and Ashbrook (1989) noted that although this research area has a much earlier history of activity, it lay relatively dormant until the mid-1970s. However, its growth has accelerated rapidly until it has now become an important and active area of research and theoretical development.
