Abstract

The article by Suveg, Southam-Gerow, Goodman, and Kendall (2007) provides a spirited argument for the importance of focusing on emotional awareness and emotion processing in prevention and treatment efforts with children. This review notes substantial empirical evidence for the role of emotions in normal development and psychopathology as well as recent evidence of our improved understanding of the aspects of the neuroscience of emotions. Finally, the authors review recent work that focuses on emotion-focused models of prevention and treatment with children. Most importantly, the authors recommend that the developmental understanding of emotions can do much to inform our models of prevention and treatment and improve the healthy development of children. My commentary focuses on conceptual and theoretical clarifications.
