Show Summary Details


Anger develops through childhood along separate lines of overt and covert expression. Overt expression involves the frequency and intensity of mood outbursts, environments that elicit them and the ease of elicitation, the individual’s ability to control them, and the effect of other people in modifying them and creating their consequences. Covert anger develops as lasting states of hostility or resentment. The ability of children and young people to recognise and process emotional states in other people and in themselves is also developing through time. The chapter describes the course of these distinct lines of development and the social and cultural influences on them.
