This film will cover emotional reactions of infants less than one-year-old. No footage of reactions that are not typical is included in the study.
See footage of a natural birth and the infant's first reactions of anxiety. Rene Spitz and Katherine Wolf perform experiments on several infants to provoke a rage response. When infants lose their support, they become afraid.
After the first six months of life, infants develop a sense of discrimination in which they can distinguish friends from strangers. A child can become comfortable when allowed to take the initiative in an interaction. An infant displays a certain level of anxiety common in twins.
Credits: Its Phenomenology in the First Year of Life
