Emotion sharing and emotion knowledge: typical and impaired development
This chapter argues that emotional development is a main component of the self-other system, and evolves through early social and affective encounters. Early in development, young infants can detect and discriminate others' emotional engagement. Sharing others' emotional presence, sharing their emotional engagement for an object of interest, or sharing their concern for another person are examples of experiences that emerge simultaneously with emotional behaviour: that is, with the construction of self-other concepts. This chapter also stresses the importance of situated studies of emotion besides studies of emotion knowledge in children with typical and impaired development.
