Inhibition and re-appraisal within emotional discourse: the embodying of narration
Ellis, D. 2009. Inhibition and re-appraisal within emotional discourse: the embodying of narration. Counselling Psychology Quarterly. 22 (3), pp. 319-331.
The emotional disclosure paradigm (EDP) associates better health with repeated disclosure of emotional experiences. However, disclosure does not bring health benefits for all, and neither does the EDP adequately specify embodied mechanisms or neural pathways whereby benefits might be produced. This paper addresses these issues by offering more sophisticated notions of emotional inhibition and cognitive reappraisal. It then outlines aspects of the somatic marker hypothesis which supports a more comprehensive conceptualization of the processes that may enable both the positive and negative health effects of disclosure.
