Title - How Does Emotion Suppression Affect Sleep? A Cross-Cultural Investigation
Speaker - Yiyi Zhu
PhD Student - UT Dallas
Emotion suppression has been linked to adverse mental and physical health outcomes among Westerners. However, these effects may not be generalizable to East Asians who are “culturally trained” to control emotional expressions. The present study examined this idea by testing how daily use of emotion suppression affects sleep—i.e., a critical component of health maintenance. Discussion centers on functional utility of emotion suppression and its health implications.
