Die Entwicklung von Emotionen im Säuglings- und by Anna Daiß

By Anna Daiß

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Entwicklungspsychologie, observe: 2,0, Fachhochschule für Kunsttherapie Nürtingen, Veranstaltung: Entwicklungspsychologie, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Emotionen begegnen uns in jedem Bruchteil unseres Lebens.
Wut, Angst, Hass, Liebe, Freude, Eifersucht, Mitleid und die Trauer der Menschen beeinflussen unser Leben fortwährend. Gefühle vermögen uns zu lenken, bewusst sowie unbewusst, und können uns zu den größten Taten befähigen. Nur mit Hilfe von Gefühlen sind wir überhaupt in der Lage, uns an schöne oder unschöne Momente unseres Lebens zu erinnern. Unsere Erinnerungen wären ausgelöscht, würden wir ihnen keine Gefühle zuschreiben. Nichts würde den Gedanken und Dingen unseres Lebens eine Seele einhauchen können.
Was wäre ein Leben ohne Emotionen? Und was once wäre die Welt ohne das Lächeln der Kinder? Durch mein Praktikum im Kindergarten wunderte ich mich täglich, wie vielseitig, wandelbar und auch wie sensibel die emotionale Welt der Kinder ist. Vom einen zum nächsten Augenblick verwandeln sich Tränen in befreites Lachen oder das Lachen in Ärger und in nahezu unkontrolliertes Schreien. Ich versuchte, dies durch genaues Beobachten zu begreifen und machte es folglich zum Thema meiner Arbeit. Die passende Literatur fand ich, neben einigen Missgriffen, nahezu vollständig in der Württembergischen Landesbibliothek in Stuttgart. Bei den Missgriffen handelte es sich eher um Elternratgeber und Pädagogische Lehrbücher, die die psychologischen Aspekte des Themas zu kurz behandelten. Mit dem Lehrbuch „Entwicklungspsychologie“ von Rolf Oerter konnte ich mir, meiner Meinung nach, eine gute und präzise foundation aufbauen. Die restliche von mir gelesene sowie auch benutzte Literatur warfare allzu oft zu stark durch vorherrschende Theorien geprägt, die es nur schwer erlaubten, eine Basiszusammenfassung des Themas zuzulassen, nach der ich jedoch strebte.
