Getting Along and Getting Ahead: An Interpersonal Perspective on Cardiovascular Risk

Date: 
May 1, 2015 - 9:30am to 11:00am
Speaker: Timothy W. Smith, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of Utah
 
Abstract: A wide variety of aspects of personality, emotional adjustment, and social context predict the development and course of coronary heart disease and related cardiovascular conditions. Although typically examined in isolation, these risk factors can be seen as marking more basic patterns and mechanisms of risk, involving recurring interpersonal experiences of connection with others (vs isolation and conflict) and relative social status. This presentation reviews psychosocial risks for cardiovascular disease, introduces this interpersonal perspective as an integrative framework, and discusses implications for treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.
