REYNA, Cecilia  e  BRUSSINO, Silvina. Role of emotional and social information processing factors in social behavior: a developmental perspective. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.1, pp. 10-23. ISSN 1413-294X.

This study examines the structural relations between social behavior, social information processing (SIP), emotionality and emotional regulation among children from Cordoba (Argentina). Six hundred and twenty-three children aged 3, 5 and 7 years, as well as their parents and teachers, participated in the study. A reduced model offered the best fit to the data, which excluded the emotional variables of positive valence. Overall, a better social performance was predicted by lower levels of negative emotionality, a better ability to regulate negative emotions, and a better ability to process social information. The different steps of SIP proved to be significant mediators. Additionally, it was observed that the structural configuration of the variables showed noticeable peculiarities according to the period of development considered.
