DOS SANTOS, Maristela Volpe; SILVA, Talita Fernanda da; SPADARI, Gabriela Fabbro  and  NAKANO, Tatiana de Cássia. Socioemotional skills: analysis of brazilian and international scientific production. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.1, pp. 4-10. ISSN 1983-8220.

Socioemotional competences have increasingly been the focus of studies carried out in several areas. Considering their relevance in personal, educational and professional results, the present study sought to make an analysis of the Brazilian and international scientific production in this area. A search in national databases (SciELO, Pepsic and Banco de Teses e Dissertações da Capes) and an international database (Wiley Online Library), from 2011 to 2015, pointed out the existence of 67 articles, most of which from the international database (n = 50). Overall, the results showed an oscillation in the interest in the theme over the analyzed period, focused on the area of ​​Developmental and Educational Psychology. Five predominant themes were found: social aspects, personality characteristics, risk and protection developmental factors, indicators of school and professional success, and cognitive aspects. Most of the studies were empirical and made use of 23 different instruments, notably in samples of children. The small number of Brazilian studies suggests a topic that deserves to be better explored, notably by Psychology and the field of psychological assessment.
