Episode 48 - COVID Special on Emotion Regulation

This is a sort of special edition and is in response to a general feeling of exhaustion and fed up-ness with COVID.  I shared a post on LinkedIn recently and it seemed to get people talking about how they are helping themselves right now.  This got me thinking that I could pull the conversation together in a podcast that may be helpful for folk too. This is the result.

I explore the 5 families of emotion regulation, what people (and I) are doing now under each family of strategies, and regular pauses or reflection moments for you fair listener to think about what it may mean for you.  


Here are your references as always:

Around 2 minutes I mention Emotional Labour and Arlie Hoschchild
Shortly after I mention episode 2 of the podcast 
Then I mention an episode with Mark Gilroy that I incorrectly labeled as episode 27
Then I do accurately refer to episode 27 😉
Here is the profile of James Gross
I also talk about appraisal theory and here is a link to a fab article that gives a headline overview of the different (psychology-based) theories of emotion.
This is the LinkedIn post that I refer to

This was a very well timed podcast given the challenges many of us are faced with around Covid disrupting our personal and work lives. Phil provides a really useful framework with practical ideas to help regulate the emotions we feel. Loved the honesty and context with his reference to personal experiences to demonstrate as examples. Thoroughly enjoyed and found the podcast really helpful - highly recommend a listen. Thank you Phil.
