Children's social networks and social supports
This new work integrates emerging ideas on children's social networks and supports with developmental theory and research. Researchers and clinicians, armed with new methodological tools, synthesize theoretical and clinical work and suggest implications for supportive interventions for children. The periods from infancy to adolescence are covered, considering social networks inside and outside of the child's household, institutional connections, and even pets.
