Fear and Anger Regulation in Infancy: Effects on the Temporal Dynamics of Affective Expression.
Buss, Kristin A.; Goldsmith, H. Hill
Child Development, v69 n2 p359-74 Apr 1998
Examined whether putative regulatory behaviors widely assumed to be conceptually associated with certain behavioral strategies were associated with the changes in fearful and angry distress in 6-, 12-, and 18-month-olds. The key finding was that the use of some putative regulatory behaviors (distraction and approach) reduced the observable intensity of anger but was less effective in reducing fear intensity.
