Drawing out emotion: Exploring children's and adolescent's drawn and graphed emotional communication

Please join professor Esther Burkitt for her Inaugural Lecture following her promotion to Professor of Developmental Psychology.

This lecture will present a research agenda that examines experimental parameters around how we may systematically interpret children’s and adolescent’s drawings of single and complex emotional experiences. It will consider influences that determine aspects of children’s affective drawings that may be misinterpreted by the viewer and propose questions that can be asked to inform closer interpretation of intended visual communication. The lecture will also present research that examines children’s and adolescent’s representations of mixed emotion experiences and the impact the findings can have on emotional assessment work with young people.

This event is free and open to all!
