The affective world - with its particular phenomena: emotion, feeling and passion - is central to a person's maturity. Much is said about the affective illiteracy of some young people and its negative consequences. But affectivity cannot be separated from character.

Our proposal is to investigate the instructions of these processes in children and adolescents and to develop educational tools for preventive interventions from infancy onwards.
Within this line, the following initiatives have been developed to transfer the scientific knowledge developed in the research to families and teachers:
