Abstract

Human beings process information in all different ways, but one of the first ways is through facial expressions. These facial expressions influence how we process information from infancy through adolescence, and how negative and positive stimuli affect our emotions. As we grow older other forms of stimuli, such as verbal and physical aspects, affect our emotions throughout our lifetime. As we gain recognition for these forms and understand how they affect the way we feel, the question is how can our understanding of other expressions be used as a mechanism for safety? This literary review discusses three types of ways our expressions affect our emotion, trauma responses, and ways we interact with others.
