Children's Emotional Reactions to a Scary Film: The Role of Prior Outcome Information and Coping Style.
Hoffner, Cynthia
Human Communication Research, v23 n3 p323-41 Mar 1997
Examines the influence of happy outcome information and coping style on fourth and fifth graders' emotional responses to a frightening film sequence. Finds that prior knowledge of the happy outcome reduced self-reported fear and worry for "blunters" but not for "monitors." Discusses interpretations of findings and implications for understanding emotional responses to mass media. (RS)
