Children's Peer Relations: From Development to Intervention
Children's Peer Relations: From Development to Intervention is a compilation of virtually everything that is known about the association between children's peer relations and the development of peer rejection, aggression, and antisocial behavior. Looking beyond the peer rejection process, this volume also covers dyadic relationships, cliques, and associations with difference types of peers as well as the effects of family influences. It is comprehensive in covering the last three decades of research that connect the dynamical features of the social and emotional processes associated with peer problems in childhood and mediators of peer experiences.
The chapters, written by some of the best-known scientist-practitioners, will interest a wide range of academic scholars, researchers, and graduate students in the field of developmental psychology and child clinical psychology as well as those working in education, social work, public health, substance abuse, or criminology/sociology.
