Expression of emotion in children from four ethnic groups and mothers' concerns

Jackson, Kathleen Marion (2000) Expression of emotion in children from four ethnic groups and mothers' concerns. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

This study investigated the expression of emotion of Anglo-Australian, Indian, Hong Kong Chinese and Turkish children who were aged 5- to 8-years. These ethnic groups were chosen because Hofstede (1980) had shown that they held different culture level values and behaved in ways that reflected these differences. It was expected that children in the middle childhood age range would therefore also show differences in emotion-related behaviours. Emotions investigated were happiness, sadness, anger and anxiety, as perceived by the children's mothers.
