Embitterment is a distinct state of mood known to everybody. It can be seen in the context of exceptional though normal negative life events. It is an emotional reaction i.e. to humiliation, to being severely disappointed by others or to violations of basic values. Embitterment is accompanied by other emotions like hope- and helplessness, lowered mood and inhibition in drive, aggression towards oneself and others. It can end in suicide or even murder suicide. But despite the high prevalence rates, the detrimental effects on the individual and the forensic and societal importance embitterment has so far not found appropriate scientific attention. In this book pioneers in embitterment research summarize the current knowledge on embitterment, its triggers, phenomenology and consequences. The work shall stimulate the international debate, contribute to a better understanding of embitterment and appreciate the impact of exceptional but normal negative life events on psychological well-being in its full extent.
