PROFESSIONAL PLENARY: The Untold Story About Negative Emotions: Insights Into a Transdiagnostic Process

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Being able to understand, verbalize, and distinguish felt experiences is a key component of psychological interventions. This plenary session will review research in clinical, social, and health psychology that offers insights into the transdiagnostic adaptive value of putting feelings into words. The ability to precisely describe and differentiate emotions has been shown to alter the association between negative emotions and emotion regulation difficulties. These findings shed light on how negative emotions and stressful experiences can be transformed by how people label and distinguish what they are feeling. Implications for the study of emotions and emotion regulation, and psychological treatment will be discussed.
