Emotion-Related Behavioral Regulation in African American Preschoolers: Social-Emotional Correlates of Teacher Perceptions
Smith, Maureen C.
NHSA Dialog, v7 n1 p117-143 2004
This preliminary and exploratory study examined the correlates of 5 aspects of teacher-rated emotion-related regulation (modulation, flexibility, organization, emotion-focused coping, aggressive-coping strategies) in a sample of 36 low- to middle-income African American preschoolers. Results showed that children's empathy, emotional intensity, negative affect, autonomic reactivity, and a projective measure of concern for relationships made unique contributions to regression estimations of teacher-rated emotion-related regulation. These results have implications for classroom management and the design of educational interventions for young ethnic minority children. (Contains 6 tables.)
