An international group of researchers and clinicians review current theory, research and intervention strategies across a wide range of topics including: peer status, gender and ethnicity, disability, illness and loneliness. There is also critical examination of methods of intervention to improve children's relations with others in school, family and community.
Children's Peer Relations will provide social researchers, school counsellors, psychologists and students of child development with a comprehensive handbook on this crucial topic.
