Emotions and Coping: Children's Talk about Negative Emotional Responses to Television.
Allerton, Mark
Early Child Development and Care, v109 p1-22 May 1995
Examined children's feelings about, and emotional reaction to, violent and distressful television programs. Suggests that coping with distressing experiences, in this case with television, involved making sense of them. Children used complex knowledge to do this, related to the media and to their own experience. When this processing led to emotional response, then children made efforts to cope. (AA)
