This session looks at the process of emotional development with a description of the basic emotions, when they first appear, and what they mean. We will look at how infants learn to discriminate between emotions and develop secondary emotions. We will describe the importance of parenting in emotional development. We will look at higher-order processes such as empathy and the child becoming aware and understanding their own thinking (metacognition). We will also look at gender differences in emotional development, particularly during adolescence. The session ends with an overview of environmental and genetic factors that can affect emotional development.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the key stages of emotional development from birth to adolescence
• Describe normal variations in emotional growth, and the main contributions to this variation
• Describe key gender differences in emotional development
• Recognise how adversity in its many forms can affect emotional development
• Recognise when behaviour seen in children and young people is a likely cause for greater concern and extra professional input
