Abstract

The aim of this study is to analyze if the children suffering from psychotic disharmony feel as typical children positive emotion. Two groups, a clinical and a control, including each 11 children of 8 years old, were set up. The children were confronted with stories staging positive emotion such as "enjoyment", "love" and "pride" They were asked to make a decision in order to complete each story and to estimate their own emotion. The study shows, for the first time experimentally, that the children presenting a psychotic disharmony feel, in the same way that typical children, the studied positive emotions. It also suggests that the emotion of the "enjoyment" would restrain the emergence of the representations associated to a previous experience of this emotion in the child presenting a psychotic disharmony.
