Can AWA turn registrants violent?

Dr. Roy Baumeister of the University of Florida has done a great deal of research on social exclusion.  His studies show that isolation, such as that caused by the registry, can actually make registrants less stable.  His studies show that social exclusion can actually REVERSE the effects of therapy and rehabiliation.

There is reason to believe that the pain of social exclusion shares many of the same neural and psychological mechanisms as experiences of physical pain.
