Abstract: This mixed method study is made up of a narrative study carried out with children and an interview study with practitioner psychologists. The narrative study examined the effects of narrative types, namely a picture book story, a first person narrative and a third person narrative, and age, 7, 9 and 11, on children's use of emotion descriptive words. The lengths of the three story types were used as covariates. A 3*3 ANCOVA was carried out showing that neither the tasks, nor the children’s age, have an effect on children's performance. However, the results show a significant, though small, interaction between age and story type effects when the covariates were jointly controlled for. The limited nature of significant findings is explained. A thematic analysis was carried out with the interview study data. This part of the study inquired about the experience and expectations of practitioner psychologists working therapeutically with children. The focus was mainly on the emotional expression of their young clients. Three main themes emerged including an adultomorphic tendency, developmental uniformity and the importance of a therapeutic relationship.
