Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Recognition of facial expressions of emotions (FEE) plays a crucial role in our pro-social behaviours (Cigna et al., 2015). The literature supports that sexual offenders display deficits in such behaviours (Marshall & Marshall, 2012). However, only few studies investigated the recognition of FEE among sexual offenders (Philipp-Weigmann et al., 2017). Our master thesis consisted of a meta-analysis on recognition of FEE based on the six basic emotions theory of Ekman between sexual offenders, non-sexual offenders and controls. Our hypotheses were that sexual offenders display greater deficits than the other groups. Following a literature review, our results supported the hypotheses. These findings are discussed given the heterogeneity in the results and the restricted number of studies. Despite these limitations, the study outlines the research which need to be undertaken on social cognition.
