This chapter considers the relationship between imagery and other features of cognition such as memory and emotion. In particular, the chapter focuses on the assertion that imagery has a special relationship with emotion, compared to verbal processing, and this is a key reason why imagery is so important for cognitive therapy. In addition, it considers experimental psychology and clinical theories about imagery and emotion, and links this research to our understanding of some of the imagery techniques.
