Construction of Rules for Emotional Display | Emotions as Energy Mobilizers | Traumatic Emotional Memories as Unconscious Energy
Mobilizers | Emotions as Self-Regulators | Emotions as Facilitators of Social Adaptation
In early childhood, children's emotions undergo significant maturation
and development. As I described earlier, these maturational and
developmental changes can be conceptualized within the framework
of how emotions continue to be children's main organizers
for 1) energy mobilization, 2) self-regulation, 3) social adaptation,
and 4) enhancing developmental change (Emde 1999).
