The present study examined the development of a dual process in affective-speech-induced emotion perception in 3- and 5-year-old children. Previous studies have suggested that unconscious emotion perception at the gaze level an...
The current study examined prosocial experiences in 165 girls and boys (Mage = 14.87). Two aspects of relationships, parental attachment and parent and peer authenticity in relationships, were explored as predictors of prosocial experiences. The results indicated that girls reported higher levels of prosocial experiences compared to boys. Path analyses found that, for both genders, secure attachment and authenticity with peers predicted prosocial experiences. In addition, there were interactions...

Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate interpersonal distrust as a mediator of the relationship between social withdrawal and intimacy, and whether retrospective bullying victimization moderates this mediation. Partici...

One hundred and thirty-eight Italian pre- and early adolescents (52.2% boys and 47.8% girls), aged between 10-14 years (M = 12.33 ± 0.87 SD), fi...
