Shelley E. Taylor is a distinguished professor of psychology at UCLA and one of the country’s leading scientists. A world-renowned expert on stress and health, her work on the tend and befriend theory is considered to be one of the biggest breakthroughs in understanding stress since the 1930s. She lives in Los Angeles, California.

The Tending Instinct. Women, Men, and the Biology of Nurturing. With great skill and insight, Taylor examines stress, relationships, and human society through the special lens of women's biology. She draws on genetics, evolutionary psychology, physiology, and neuroscience to show how this tending process begins virtually at the moment of conception and literally crafts the biology of offspring through genes that rely on caregiving for their expression.

The Tending Instinct elevates women’s natural strengths in caregiving and befriending to a long-deserved prominence in society. Men and women differ in the way they respond to stress. After a hard day's work, men want to be alone; women spend more time with the children. And it is this tending instinct that keeps a society together and makes individuals healthier. Men and women differ in other ways that influence social interaction, says Taylor. Women, Men, and the Biology of Relationships

The Tending Instinct. Women, Men, and the Biology of Relationships. by Shelley E. Taylor. Published May 1, 2003 by Owl Books. Psychologist Shelley E. Taylor didn't know there were any big mistakes left in science, until she learned that the classic theories of stress - most notibly the "fight or flight" response - were based almost entirely on studies that involved only male subjects. In setting out to discover how women respond to stress, Taylor and her colleagues revealed a profound truth that revolutionizes our understanding of human behavior: we are biologically programmed to care for one another.

Men tend to feel more comfortable reaching out if it’s a formalized relationship, like a mentoring relationship in business, she says

The dominant metaphor, ‘fight or flight,’ represents the threatening social landscape as a solitary kill-or-be-killed world, notes psychologist Shelley Taylor, PhD, in her book The Tending Instinct: Women, Men and the Biology of Our Relationships (Henry Holt and Company, 2002). Men tend to feel more comfortable reaching out if it’s a formalized relationship, like a mentoring relationship in business, she says. In reality, all of us - women and men - contain within ourselves the ability to be both warriors and nurturers. The key is being comfortable enough to embrace both roles.

In her book The Tending Instinct: Women, Men and the Biology of our Relationships, Shelley Taylor P. This traditionally feminine approach to stress reduction is an effective alternative to fight or flight"

“A tour de force . . . The Tending Instinct elevates women’s natural strengths in caregiving and befriending to a long-deserved prominence in society. A crucial message for us all.” —Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional IntelligenceFor generations, scientists have taught us about the “fight or flight” response to stress. But is this instinct universal? Renowned psychologist Shelley E. Taylor explains that “fight or flight” may only be half the story. Humans—particularly females—are hardwired to respond to stress differently. As Taylor deftly points out in this eye-opening work, the “tend and befriend” response is among the most vital ingredient of human social life.Ranging widely over biology, evolutionary psychology, physiology, and neuroscience, Taylor examines the biological imperative that drives women to seek each other’s company, and to tend to the young and the infirm, bestowing great benefits to the group but often at great cost to themselves. This tending process begins virtually at the moment of conception, and literally crafts the biology of offspring through genes that rely on caregiving for their expression.In the tradition of groundbreaking books about the science of human nature such as Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence and Steven Pinker’s The Language Instinct, Taylor’s book will change forever the way we talk and think about ourselves.

Rude
While Shelley E. Taylor has been researching and writing about "Tend and Befriend" response to stress for some time, I think this work is as important as ever because the role that women's relationships play in the health of society is still not widely acknowledged and continues to be undervalued. Here is evidence and an argument for the importance of nurture and social connection for ourselves and our offspring. Thank you for your work, Dr. Taylor.

Excellent description of female perspective. Science at its best.

Who knew the key the guides women to be nurturing and that in groups of women the power is increased. An empowering book.
