Tip: To sort articles by Rank…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search.    This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search.  Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

The Organization of Emotional Development

L. Alan Sroufe, Ph.D.

The domain of emotional development is extensive. Obviously, it includes the evolution of the various affect systems, from precursors in early infancy to the forms we recognize in children. But it also includes the changing capacity of the infant to modulate arousal and to mediate affective response. And, in addition, it includes the role of emotions in individual development. Development in general may be viewed as organized around a series of issues, each with an emotional core. Individual differences may be assessed in terms of the quality of adaptation with respect to these developmental issues, and the consequences of early adaptation for later emotional development may be examined.

Each of these aspects of the organization of emotional development will be sketched briefly in various parts of this paper. Recent research has helped to clarify the meaning of affective expressions, the relationship between early and later affective expression, and the determinants of emotional reactions. It has enabled a beginning integration of affect, cognition, and social behavior.
