73. Professor George Slavich – What Does The Immune System Care About?

On the Survival of the Kindest podcast we try and piece together a variety of different views which help to explain why compassion is so important.
On this week’s podcast we hear about the fantastic work of Professor George Slavich. Starting with a psychology degree, George became increasingly interested in the biological impacts of social relationships. This led him to the field of psychoneuroimmunology. The depth of his interest is amazing. He has managed to describe as complete a picture of the impact of social relationships in all the body systems as we have. He has developed the field of social safety theory which comprehensively examines the evolutionary roots and the impacts of a variety of different environments, both physical and social, on how our bodies function.
