Bilyana Martinovski, Wenji Mao, Jonathan Gratch, Stacy Marsella: “Mitigation Theory: An Integrated Approach”

July 21, 2005 | Stresa, Italy

Speaker: Bilyana Martinovski, Wenji Mao, Jonathan Gratch, Stacy Marsella
Host: Twenty-Seventh Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society (CogSci 2005)

The purpose of this paper is to develop a theoretical model of mitigation by integrating cognitive and discourse approaches to appraisal and coping. Mitigation involves strategic, emotional, linguistic, and Theory of Mind processes on different levels of consciousness. We emphasize that discourse analysis can assist our understanding of these processes.
