Check out the new episode with Lance Bennett where we chat about emotional contagion.
Have you ever been in a joyful mood, but it completely changed by the emotions your friends were experiencing? Simply put, do you consider how your emotion impacts other people and how other’s emotions impact you? Lance Bennett, from the University of Iowa, is back to chat with Alysa about his research on emotional contagion and how it relates to relationships, like friendships. The lively, yet nerdy discussion focuses on Lance’s plan for research and Alysa asking questions and providing scenarios for Lance to tackle! Because emotional contagion is an infection that is unlikely to go away, it is critical to consider the role of emotion in our friendships and how being infected with such emotion can impact our well-being.
