Coping with Stress Using Social Robots as Emotion-Oriented Tool: Potential Factors Discovered from Stress Game Experiment

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNAI,volume 8239)

Abstract

It is known from psychology that humans cope with stress by either changing stress-induced situations (which is called problem-oriented coping strategy) or by changing his/her internal perception about the stress-induced situations (which is called emotion-oriented coping strategy). Social robots, as emerging tools that have abilities to socially interact with humans, can be of great use to help people coping with stress. The paper discusses some recent studies about ways of dealing with stress in stressful situations by using social robots. Moreover, we focus on presenting our experimental design and the discovered factors that can allow social robots to assist humans in dealing with stress in an emotion-oriented manner.
