Upcoming workshop to cover effects of ostracism

January 16, 2013  

WorkLife Programs is offering a workshop to help employees deal with and recover from being excluded.

"Ostracism: The Effects of Being Ignored and Excluded" will be held 12:10-12:50 p.m. Thursday (Jan. 17) in Stewart Center, Room 313.

Being ignored and excluded, even briefly and by strangers (even computers) is painful, activating the pain-detection regions of the brain. It also lowers one's sense of self-esteem, self-efficacy, belonging and worth. New research finds that it literally leaves you cold. This workshop covers the immediate and downstream consequences of being ostracized and summarizes strategies to effectively recover from it.
