Event description

Description

The feature-length documentary REJECT takes an in-depth look at the science of social rejection. The film was originally inspired by the work of the Director’s father, Dr. Herbert E. Thomas, who wrote a book called The Shame Response to Rejection. During his work as a resident psychiatrist for 30 years in a maximum-security prison, he witnessed a clear connection between the experience of rejection and physical pain and how this could often lead to acts of violence. It led to the discovery that there is indeed scientific support for this “potentially vital, and certainly provocative thesis.” (National Science Foundation)
