Margaret Morris: The new sharing of emotions

Loading player...

About this talk: Margaret Morris wondered if a smart phone could add a new dimension to fostering mental health. She reveals how subjects successfully interacted with their phones throughout the day, mapping moods, charting physical responses, and getting instant ideas on confronting situations. And rather than expressing concerns about privacy, they wanted to share their emotions with others.
