Document Summary

The everyday person thinks about how they can express or inhibit their emotions. Clinical psychologists help people deal with unconscious and repressed emotions and in general how to deal with events that cause emotions. Research psychologists contemplate how emotions can be an individual phenomena while also being a part of bodily processes and thought processes: emotion as a distinctive experience while also being cognitive and biological. Eigenwelt the personal, private world(your own personal self" world) Mitwelt the social world (this world involves others, and how you relate to them) Umwelt organic/physical world (the environment around you: ludwig binswanger coined the term throwness" for the feeling of being thrown into these worlds. this is part of existential phenomenology(how we exist) sometimes themes work together (eg; a new immigrant must adapt but doesn"t know why they are having trouble doing so. So, they look for meaning in their world. Understanding gives them the ability to adapt accordingly)
