Crying and crying responses

chapter
posted on 08.08.2014 by Alexa Hepburn, Jonathan Potter
While psychological approaches to emotion start with experience or physiology, conversation analysis (often abbreviated to CA) starts with emotion as a public and communicable object. (us with crying, the initial focus is not on how it feels and how it is related to grief or loss but on how crying appears in human conduct and the elements that make it recognizable. How crying unfolds in interaction, and how it is responded to, becomes the focus for study. Analysis in this chapter will therefore highlight the profoundly public nature of such matters, how they can be recognized and normatively organized.
