The Many Faces of Social Exclusion
Il giorno 13 febbraio 2018 alle ore 12 presso la Sala Riunioni del Dipartimento si terrà il seminario dal titolo "The Many Faces of Social Exclusion".
Il relatore sarà Paolo Riva (Università Milano Bicocca).
Abstract: Social exclusion has many faces. From ostracism on the playground to romantic rejection, bullying at work, and social disregard for the aged, individuals are at constant risk of experiencing instances of social exclusion, including ostracism, rejection, discrimination and dehumanization. These phenomena have a powerful impact as testified by their immediate influence on thought, emotion, and behavior. In this talk, I will present research showing that social exclusion can have implications concerning virtually all domains of psychological inquiry, including social psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, and clinical psychology. Then, I will review some of the possible psychological and neural approaches that can reduce the negative impact of social exclusion. Considering that the negative consequences of social exclusion have been widely documented, there is an urgent need for more research on interventions to reduce the detrimental impact of social exclusion.
