In this workshop Dr. Christine Dunkley describes some of the interesting research into how emotional pain manifests and is maintained as a distinct entity. For example, emotions such as anger or sadness can be experienced with or without emotional pain, and even joy can sometimes be painful. She addresses some of the therapeutic means to reduce emotional pain associated with sadness and loneliness, and shows how to reduce a fear of emotional pain in clients who avoid change. She explores evidence that emotional pain is a physiological phenomenon that shares neurobiology with physical pain.
