About the PhD thesis by Susan Hart
Psychometric Properties of the Emotional Development Scale. Investigating Reliability and Validity Including Correlations with The Marschak Interaction Method and The Neuroaffective Mentalizing Interview
Due to emotional difficulties, a growing number of children are referred to regional educational-psychological advisory services and child psychiatric services with mental problems related to emotional vulnerabilities. The neuroaffective developmental psychology framework is a way of understanding children's normal emotional development and of examining how this development may be promoted or disturbed by relational issues. Within this theoretical framework, Susan Hart has developed a measurement tool to assess the current emotional functioning level of 4–12-year-olds. Read more and download thesis.
