This important book recognises the complexity and importance of emotions and emotional development in the needs and lives of people with intellectual disabilities (learning disabilities), and in their care and support. Combining research, assessment and practice, and bringing together a team of experts and advisers in the field, enables exploration of this complex topic from a number of positive perspectives, including emotional development as an adaptive behaviour, as a support need, and as a quality of life domain. With insights into the intertwined connection between the emotions and the brain, the book systematically sets out theoretical frameworks, themes of emotional development, diagnostics and support, before considering whether it is possible to provide an integrative model as a basis for theory, everyday practice and research. It is a book that is relevant to everyone working in the field of intellectual disability as a key reference for practice, education, policy-making and research.

The ability to express, understand, and regulate emotions is a crucial element in individual functioning and interpersonal interaction. This important volume presents a fresh look at early child development by exploring the very beginnings of emotional competence in young children. What do toddlers and preschoolers understand about their own and other people's feelings? What are the connections between emotions, socialization, and healthy relationships? How do changes in other areas of development, like cognition, fuel emotional competencies? What problems ensue when emotional development is delayed, and how can they be ameliorated? Including numerous case studies, original findings, and an extensive review of the literature, the book sheds light on the emotional experience of the very young and points toward exciting directions for future research.

Nurturing Personal Social and Emotional Development in Early Childhood

This direct guide supports practitioners in nurturing personal, social and emotional development (PSED) in young children by demystifying brain development research.

This direct guide supports practitioners in nurturing personal, social and emotional development (PSED) in young children by demystifying brain development research. Condensing a wealth of recent research and theory around PSED into practical guidance, it gives professionals the knowledge and understanding they need to critically evaluate their own practice and find the best course of action to support PSED in young children. From the perspective of neuroscience, it explores what can help or hinder development, considers why some children bite and why toddlers have tantrums, and questions how well-intentioned actions, such as reward systems or putting new foods on a plate for children to 'just try', may be misguided.

Synthesizing the latest research and theory with compelling narratives and case vignettes, this book explores the development of emotional competence in school-age children and young adolescents. Saarni examines the formation of eight key emotional skills in relation to processes of self-understanding, socialization, and cognitive growth. The cultural and gender context of emotional experience is emphasized, and the role of moral disposition and other individual differences is considered. Tracing the connections between emotional competence, interpersonal relationships, and resilience in the face of stress, the book also explores why and what happens when development is delayed.

Connections Between Emotion and Understanding in Development

The studies in this issue bridge the gaps between these domains: they illuminate the connections, but also show us some of the differences in the pattern of children's development in emotion and understanding.

Developmental studies are beginning to bring together previously separate areas of research on emotion and cognition, making this a particularly exciting time for a special issue of Cognition and Emotion focusing on developmental research. Three themes, each central in current developmental studies, are brought together in this special issue, in which leaders in developmental research describe their most recent studies. These themes are the nature and developmental course of children's understanding of emotion; the development of children's understanding of mind; and the influence of a range of socialisation experiences, including emotional expression, on children's social relationships and behaviour. The studies in this issue bridge the gaps between these domains: they illuminate the connections, but also show us some of the differences in the pattern of children's development in emotion and understanding. Cutting across the studies described are a number of common themes: an interest in individual differences; in using natural language data and observational methods as well as experimental approaches; in gender differences in emotional expression and experiences and their implications; and, perhaps most striking of all, in framing developmental questions in terms of both cognitive and emotional development. The generative potential of the research described is unquestionable and the innovative combinations of interest in both cognitive and emotional aspects of development greatly to be welcomed.

Emotional Development in Atypical Children

Early emotional development, emotional regulation, and the links between emotion and social or cognitive functioning in atypically developing children have not received much attention. This lack is due in part to the priorities given to the educational and therapeutic needs of these children. Yet an understanding of the basic emotional processes in children with atypical development can only serve to promote more effective strategies for teaching and intervening in the lives of these children and their families and may contribute to our understanding of basic emotional processes as well. When referring to "emotions," the editors mean some complex set of processes or abilities, whether or not the topic is normal or atypical development. Specifically, they use the term "emotion" to refer to at least three things -- emotional expressions, emotional states, and emotional experiences. The focus of this volume, these three aspects of emotional life are affected by socialization practices, maturational change, and individual biological differences including, in this case, differences in children as a function of disability. Contributors examine the development of emotions in children with organic or psychological disorders as well as those in compromised social contexts making this volume of prime importance to developmental, clinical, and social psychologists, educators, and child mental health experts.

The Oxford Handbook of Emotional Development

Emotional Development is a topic that embraces a range of disciplines, including, psychology, neuroscience, sociology, primatology, philosophy, history, cognitive science, computer science, and education. The Oxford Handbook of Emotional Development is the first volume of its kind to include such a multidisciplinary group of experts to consider this topic, and as such, provides perhaps the most complete examination yet of how emotions develop and manifest themselves neuronally, intra- and interpersonally, across different cultures and species, and over time. The volume is separated into five themes: macro and micro underpinnings; communication and understanding; interactive contexts; socialization and learning; and morality and prosocial behaviour. Each section includes contributions from researchers in at least three disciplines, resulting in a volume that is destined to provoke the interested reader into either purposively or accidentally discovering emotional development from novel and stimulating perspectives. The chapters are written to be concise in their overview and accessible to the researcher or intellectually curious person alike. The reader can enjoy state of the art critical analysis of emotional development from different viewpoints, which, whether dipped into casually or read as a whole, will provide the best view of not only what we know today about emotional development, but also where the future study of emotional development lies. The Oxford Handbook of Emotional Development is an original and important contribution to the literature in psychology and the affective sciences.
