Resilience and Self-Control Impairment

  • Chapter

Abstract

Self-control has been a pervasive idea in developmental psychology. At a neurocognitive level, the organism’s control (or lack of it) over its own responsiveness to stimuli has been regarded as a central topic in attention/executive function research and attention deficit (e.g., Taylor, 1995). Behavioral control is a more complex idea: clearly, a planned and rule-governed organization of activity can have many advantages and has arguably been a cru-cial acquisition in the evolution of man. Emotional control relates to the idea that it is adaptive to moderate the immediate affective reaction and to respond in a willed rather than a passionate fashion.
