SOUSA, Mariana Lopes  e  CRUZ, Orlanda Maria. Self-conscious emotions in children's narratives: contributions of the narrative approach. Aletheia [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.1-2, pp. 8-20. ISSN 1413-0394.

Self-conscious emotions are a specific type of emotions which promote prosocial behaviour. This study explores the potentialities of five story-stems to elicit self-conscious emotions in children’s narratives. Excerpts from narratives of children with antagonic family experiences have been analysed. Children were asked to complete a set of story-stems. The story-stems used in this study revealed to be useful to understand how children with different family backgrounds construct their narratives. These story-stems also seem suitable to elicit guilt and empathy. With regard to shame and pride, other story-stems should be further explored. Potentialities of story-stems as a tool in clinical practice with children and adolescents are emphasized.
