We’d like to extend a warm welcome to the nearly 25,000 members of This Emotional Life, the three-part television series that originally aired in early 2010. The series, a co-production of Vulcan Productions and the NOVA/WGBH Science Unit, explored ways people can improve their social relationships (Family, Friends & Lovers), cope with negative emotions such as depression and anxiety (Facing Our Fears) and become more positive, resilient individuals (Rethinking Happiness).
Each episode weaved together the compelling personal stories of ordinary people and the latest scientific research, along with revealing comments from celebrities such as Chevy Chase, Larry David, Elizabeth Gilbert, Alanis Morissette, Katie Couric and Richard Gere.
Two years later, This Emotional Life’s online community remains strong — and growing. So when the folks responsible for keeping the online community going approached us to help keep it alive and curate it moving forward, we were both happy and honored to do so.
