Emotions and Psychopathology
Ann M. Kring – Jo-Anne Bachorowski
eBook Edition: 1999

Emotional disturbances are central to diverse psychopathologies. In this article, we ague that the functions of emotion are comparable for persons with and without psychopathology. However, impairment in one or more components of emotional processing disrupts the achievement of adaptative emotion functions. Adopting a theoretical conceptualization of emotional processes that stresses activity in centrally mediated approach and withdrawal systems, we discuss the role of emotion in several forms of psychopathology, and schizophrenia. In doing so, we highlight the nature of emotion disturbance and attendant behavioural and cognitive deficits. Finally, we discuss the merits of this approach for conceptualising emotional disturbance in psychopathology. (From Author)
