Emotional Facial and Linguistics feedback, and Post-Traumatic Stress States – REFLETS

Submission summary

The theory of peripheral emotional feedback – that our emotional experiences are under the retroactive influence of our own expressions – has been an ongoing subject of debate in psychology since William James. On the one hand, the fact that putting on a smile or a frown may have an implicit, automatic effect in one's emotional experience holds tremendous potential for clinical remediation in psychiatric disorders. On the other hand, the idea faces tremendous theoretical and methodological challenges: in July 2016, a 17-laboratory Registered Replication Report failed to reproduce the effect found by one of the seminal paper of the field, despite that original study being cited more than 1500 times. Project REFLETS aims to address this situation head-on, building new health technology able to channel the psychological mechanism of facial and vocal emotional feedback for clinical application to post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD).
