Resumen

El creciente interés por la educación emocional en la infancia motivó este trabajo, que busca examinar los aportes de diversas investigaciones, a partir de una revisión sistemática de documentos indexados en Google Académico, Web of Science, Science Direct, Scielo y Dialnet. Se consideró un total de 204 documentos, los cuales se referencian en la construcción narrativa de este texto; sin embargo, con el ánimo de determinar su pertinencia y relevancia, se hizo uso de matrices de análisis de contenido documental, a partir de las cuales se dio prevalencia a 62 documentos (desde 1985 hasta 2021). Los resultados se presentan en 3 categorías de análisis, que a su vez guiaron la revisión: empatía y razonamiento moral, empatía y desarrollo infantil; empatía en el ámbito educativo. Dentro de las conclusiones, es posible afirmar que existe una tendencia a centrar esta clase de estudios en las conductas prosociales y disruptivas en el ámbito educativo, además de sus posibles acciones educativas; por otra parte, estos hallazgos permiten determinar futuras líneas de trabajo en torno a la educación emocional y la empatía en la infancia.
