This unit explores emotional development in childhood and adolescence. It examines the different developmental issues confronted at the various stages of emotional development, emphasising the strains and strengths that are endemic in emotional growth. It also considers the various ways of managing this necessary emotional stress. The second aspect of this Unit will explore the different behavioural manifestations that result when the stress of emotional development is too great and the child and adolescent need to revert to management strategies that impede healthy emotional functioning and development.
