ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of taking a self-preserving approach when recalling previous emotional trauma or painful events. The author shares his experience with prejudice when he was in graduate school, as a Mexican immigrant studying at Columbia University. Researchers recommend taking a self-distanced perspective on the negative event in order to become calm and see the event more clearly. They also found that self-distancers stay constructive even when their partners get angry.
