Understanding the importance of emotional states guides attention, decision-making, and behavioral responses.
Emotion labeling allows for optimal communication. The precise expression of emotions ensures that emotions are communicated in a socially appropriate way. Emotion regulation allows for the expression of socially appropriate emotions and the ability to behave in a socially acceptable manner.
