In the Media: Lara Tiedens Discusses the Psychology of Anger in the Washington Post

In the Washington Post, President Lara Tiedens, who has received numerous awards and honors for her research in the fields of social psychology and behavioral science, discussed the role of anger as an appropriate reaction to times of uncertainty. “By being angry about something, you get to leave your feelings of uncertainty for a while and occupy a space and a sensibility of certainty and clarity and confidence,” she told the Post. She added that channeling these feelings into activism is a powerful response.
