PBS Series: This Emotional Life
PBS is running a great series written by social psychologist Daniel Gilbert. The series focuses on different aspects of our emotional life -- love, happiness, despair, attachment, friendship, anger, conflict.
Gilbert interviews a wide variety of professionals who work within the broad arena of human emotion -- some are researchers and some are clinicians. Brain research is presented as are different forms of therapy. There is a a terrific piece on reactive attachment disorder based on a family that adopted a boy from a Siberian orphanage as well as a piece on a young adult with Asperger's Syndrome.
You can order the series on DVD via PBS. A very worthwhile series!!
