Health, Well Being and the Social Regulation of Affect and Emotion

High quality social relationships help us live longer, happier, and healthier lives--facts that hold true, as far as anyone knows, regardless of geography or culture. Although links between relationships and health have been observed for decades (if not millennia), the mechanisms responsible for them remain speculative. For this talk, I'll first describe our work on one of these potential mechanisms: social regulation of the brain's response to perceived threat. Next, I'll offer a perspective--derived initially from our social regulation results--that integrates the study of social relationships with principles of behavioral ecology and cognitive psychology to propose that social relationships are construed by the brain as bioenergetic resources available to the self. Because of this, proximity to social resources economizes both current and predicted cognitive and bodily effort, a process that can diminish subjective stress, improve health, and even prolong life.

Objectives

  • Learn why we think the predictive human brain is designed to assume access to social relationships characterized by shared goals, joint attention, interdependence, and trust.
  • Learn how the human brain may be designed to construe social relationships as bioenergetic resources by encoding close others as part of the self.
  • Learn how the assumption of proximity to social resources that expand and empower the self allows humans to, in effect, outsource everything from probabilistic risk, to threat vigilance, emotional responding, and a host of other demanding neural and behavioral activities.
  • Learn why sharing emotional challenges helps us create social economies of scale that regulate our propensity for engaging in neural and behavioral work, with implications for how we think, act and feel.
  • Learn how and why when social resources are absent, unreliable, or lost, our sense of self is diminished, along with both our objective and subjective efficacy.
