Abstract : Emotions and new technologies often sound as an impossible association. However, in recent years, new Information and Communication Technologies (nICT) such as wearable sensors and software for activity recognition have enabled to assess emotions more accurately. This dissertation aimed at developing and testing various nICT-based tools allowing a better assessment and management of emotions, either at the behavioral, physiological or cognitive level. I started with a literature review of the existing nICT for the assessment and management of emotional disorders. I then gathered recommendations for the use of nICT from experts in the field, as well from interns in psychiatry and general practitioners (Study 1). Next, I developed a computerized test to assess impairments in emotional experience and emotion regulation at the physiological and cognitive level (Study 2). Study 3 consisted in developing a tool to manage emotional disorders at the physiological and cognitive level by means of a multisensory, virtual immersion, and assessing the effects of this immersion on the verbal ability of patients with and without cognitive impairment. Finally, in Study 4 I developed an automated platform for the assessment and management of emotional disorders at the behavioral level. In this context, I developed and evaluated the interest of employing activity recognition algorithms for the detection of behavioral emotional disorders, and I evaluated the effects of nonpharmacological solutions based on aromatherapy, music therapy and serious games for the management of these disorders.
