>In this chapter we will suggest that social connection is a need as basic as air, water, or food and that like these more basic needs, the absence of social connections causes pain. Indeed, we propose that the pain of social separation or rejection may not be very diff erent from some kinds of physical pain.
> We are not alone in this claim. For centuries, writers, musicians, playwrights, and poets have noted that the loss of social bonds can unleash the most profound forms of human pain and suff ering. Th e legal systems of many countries have also recognized this, as evidenced by their use of social isolation as one of the most extreme forms of punishment, at times issued interchangeably with the death penalty for the most severe crimes (Baumeister, 2000). Likewise, the pain of broken social bonds permeates the English language, illustrated by the use of physical pain words to describe episodes of socially painful experiences, such as when speaking of “broken hearts” or “hurt feelings” (MacDonald & Shaw, this volume).
> Physical pain has previously been defi ned as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage” (International Association for the Study of Pain, 1979). For social pain, however, there is no pre-existing defi nition of this term that captures our intended meaning. We conceptualize social pain as analogous to Bowlby’s description of the separation distress that occurs when an infant feels distress due to separation from a caregiver (Bowlby, 1969). In a similar manner, we defi ne social pain as the distressing experience arising from actual or potential psychological distance from close others or from the social group.
TLDR: Being excluded from a social group is as painful as physical pain.
