Social Pain as Real as Physical Pain


Finally! Science recognizes that emotional pain is as disabling as physical pain.Interestingly pain relievers can help ease emotional pain as much as physical pain.

Interestingly, Matthew Lieberman explains how the pain felt from being left out, or socially excluded, is as harmful as a broken arm!

Social and emotional intelligence are finally being recognized! Another very interesting finding is that if we take that in consideration, it changes our understanding of learning as well. Our drive for connection has a greater impact than our desire for high test scores. Social power engages us more!

Watch the video! This is exiting material!
