We are working to update, expand, and organize the information on this website.

Welcome! This website functions as a resource page for engagement in research using Affect Control Theory. You will find data, methodology, and resources developed for and by the affect control theory community of researchers and educators. We invite you to explore!

Affect Control Theory makes testable predictions about behavior, emotion, and social interpretation in the context of interpersonal events. Scholars around the world have tested and applied the theory in more than 100 published articles, books, and chapters. This website contains data, software, and other resources for researchers, students, instructors, and others interested in learning more about the theory and making use of its tools. This site is intended to be a companion to David Heise’s ACT site at Indiana University and duplicates some of the information from that site, with permission.
