Girard Psychology Lecture: Iris Mauss

Mindfulness, self-care, and “positive thinking” are all touted as panaceas for negative emotions. But according to University of California, Berkeley, researcher Iris Mauss, if you’re feeling down, the self-imposed pressure to change your tune can actually make you feel even worse. “We found that people who habitually accept their negative emotions experience fewer negative emotions, which adds up to better psychological health.” Mauss visits to discuss scientific findings like these from her research in the field of emotion regulation.
