This talk will describe the author's integration of recent research that provides an updated brain-based view of cognitive and emotional processing. Based on findings related to brain activation during different emotional states, it is possible to identify different roles of the left and right hemispheres in producing and regulating emotional responses. Whereas rapid, parallel processing leads to judgments related to whether situations are "bad" or "dangerous," more time-consuming sequential processing is required in order to arrive at judgments of "good" or "safe." As a result, the relative time and effort required to achieve and maintain positive versus negative affect can be analyzed in a dynamic model. It is shown that emotional states can be understood in terms of being either reactions to stimuli, or as the results of sustained intrinsic mechanisms. Implications for interventions such as counseling, medication, and bio/neurofeedback, are discussed.
