Session Theme: Harnessing the Restorative Power of Anger for Innovation and Social Change- Anger & Innovation: Can Emotional Awareness & Management Fuel Your Creativity? Classical theories of anger in philosophical and psychological literature have led us to believe that the emotion comes from specific parts of the brain triggered by the world around us. However, the most recent advances in neuroscientific research challenge this view and suggest that emotions are psychological experiences that each of us constructs based on our unique personal history, physiology and environment. These emerging perspectives have serious implications for how we manage anger-fuelled action in society. In this session, participants are introduced to the theory of constructed emotion and a tool for decoding personal irritations to unlock increased empathy and creativity.
