Exploration of issues relating to emotional development in children and its influence on behaviour, both normal and abnormal.
During the past few decades, there has been an increased interest in investigating the emotions and their links with other domains of the human mind. Research on emotional development, both alone and in combination with other ontogenetic domains, has greatly added to our understanding of the nature of normal developmental processes. While the roles of emotion, cognition, and representation in the emergence, course, and sequelae of various risk conditions and psychopathological disorders have been extensively studied, until recently there has been very little work examining the interrelation of these domains from a developmental perspective.
In their chapters in this volume, prominent theoreticians and researchers examine a number of issues central to furthering our knowledge about the relations between emotional, cognitive, and representational processes in both normal and abnormal functioning.
