Cantor, Joanne; Wilson, Barbara J.
Journal of Broadcasting, v28 n4 p431-43 Fall 1984
Describes a study comparing the way cognitive manipulations affected the emotional responses of preschool and elementary school children to a frightening film, i.e., telling children the presentation is not real, and role-taking. Emotional responses of 9- to 11-year-olds were modified by instructional sets while 3- to 5-year-olds' responses were not. (MBR)
