What happens

In this study, your child will be shown pictures of emotional scenes. For each picture, your child will be asked how they think someone would feel if they saw that scene in real life.

What we're studying

This study will help us assess pictures for a project investigating how children and adolescents use information from the world around them when thinking about other people's emotions. This will in turn help us understand what parents and teachers can do to support their children's developing emotional intelligence.
