Abstract

This study piloted techniques to render shame and anger in a laboratory. Participants (13 women, 7 men) were asked to recall a past instance that made them feel either shameful or angry and then to either write the experience down, talk about it, or think about it. Preliminary results indicate that talking about the emotion eliciting event is more successful in inducing emotions than writing or thinking. For the later phase of this study, we will use this technique with a target population to elicit both shame and anger while using Impedance Cardiography to measure physiology.
