Emotional wellbeing is fundamental to our quality of life. It enables us
to experience life as meaningful and is an essential component of social
cohesion and stability in the living environment. This one-day workshop at
CHI 2012 will bring together a diverse community of researchers, to share
expertise and consolidate existing knowledge on interaction design and
emotional wellbeing. It will provide a forum to define new opportunities
and explore diverse theoretical frameworks, thus helping to set an agenda
for future research in this area. Alongside a specific consideration of
technology in mental health settings, we will explore the role of
emotional support in health and wellbeing more generally, and will
consider the requirements of technologies that can provide emotional
support across the lifespan. The potential of social and sensor networks
and possibilities for extending traditional care networks will be
important themes of this workshop.

describes future intentions and/or offers new insights, theoretical
perspectives or provocative opinions on technology and emotional
