This talk will describe a program of research on the emotion regulatory benefits of self-distancing -- the process of transcending one’s egocentric point of view in the here-and-now. It will focus on linguistic mechanism that focus present data from multiple levels of analyses (e.g., behavioral, neural) using a variety of research designs (i.e., correlational, experimental, longitudinal) that elucidate how and why self-distancing might foster both personal and interpersonal well-being. Implications of the findings for applications (intervention, therapy, training) will be discussed.
