Belonging with Dr. Margaret Clark

About this event

Zoom | November 3 | 12 - 1:30 pm EDT

We all want to belong to a community and that sense of belonging is elemental to our well-being. Join Dr. Margaret Clark for a conversation about just how much young people want to belong, how they strive to belong and what really makes people feel that they belong.

Dr. Margaret S. Clark is an experimental social psychologist with additional interests in personality. Her research focuses on optimal intra- and interpersonal functioning close relationships, the social functions of emotion, and the intersection of those two areas.

Clark has long been interested in the normative nature of interpersonal processes as they occur within family relationships, friendships, and romantic relationships and in how the norms that apply to such relationships differ from those that apply to relating to acquaintances and business partners.

Regarding the social functions of emotion, current research is demonstrating the value of feeling and expressing hurt and guilt to preserving communal relationships and the value of feeling and expressing gratitude to building and strengthening communal relationships. Other work focuses on people’s willingness to express emotion to partners and how that willingness is closely linked to the communal strength (Mills, Clark, Ford and Johnson, 2004) of a relationship.
