What We Treat
The “bio” part of this theory asserts that some people are born more sensitive to emotional stimuli than others. They’re genetically predisposed to feeling emotions more strongly or picking up on subtle emotions that others do not detect.
This high level of sensitivity can quickly lead to intense moods and emotional overload, often coming out of nowhere and hitting like a ton of bricks. The inability to regulate these emotions can lead to impulsive behavior and strong reactions to emotional triggers.
The "Social Component"
The “social” component of the model relates to a person’s environment, including our relationships as well as our general society, which often encourages us to show some emotions and hide others.
The feedback from the environment can be invalidating at times, signaling that our emotions are wrong, that we are overreacting, or that we “should” feel differently and push away the negative thoughts.
Additionally, our environment can reinforce our out-of-control emotions if people give in to them. We come to learn that they are effective in getting what we want.

We are human and built to connect to others. Yet so many of us feel unconnected and lonely, struggle with lack of intimate relationships or feel unfulfilled with the relationships we have. Relationships may include our intimate partner (or wish to have one), our friendships, and all of the other relationships we may have with family, colleagues, and in the community.
