Psychiatry & Psychotherapy Podcast

May 24, 2018

In the third and final installment on microexpressions, Ariana Cunningham and Dr. David Puder talk about how learning microexpressions can help you build empathy and connect with other people.

As Paul Eckman demonstrated in his research, they can be potent glimpses into someone’s emotional experience.

In this episode we talk about:

How emotions come into play in our dreams and other unconscious ways.

How to use what we learn from them carefully and with curiosity, rather than with a know-it-all attitude.

How we create psychological defense to cope with reality

How we might experience problematic relationship patterns through a theory called object relations.

How our emotions happen out of our awareness.

Preventing emotional overload and empathic exhaustion.

Emotional transference and how to stop it.
