Although conflict in human affairs has fascinated theorists and researchers for centuries, this book is unique in focusing on the role of conflict in psychological and social development: the hows, whens, wheres, and whys of conflict in everyday life. Conflict is not always a negative, destructive event; research shows that it has many positive effects in the development of individuals and their interpersonal relationships. A major theme of Conflict in Child and Adolescent Development is how the management of conflict can enhance the psychological growth of individuals and strengthen relationships among people. Leading scholars present findings based on empirical research from psychology, anthropology, sociology, sociolinguistics, and family relations to provide an intriguing picture of what is known about conflict and to preview future research.

"Despite the plethora of research on childhood aggression and family conflict, efforts to design and implement effective interventions have not been as numerous. The book emphasizes that conflict intervention should help make conflict functional, rather than extinguish conflict altogether...a valuable resource for understanding the vital roles conflict and conflict resolution play in children's lives." Melissa Allen, Childhood Education "... emphasizes that conflict intervention should help make conflict functional, rather than extinguish conflict altogether...a valuable resource for understanding the vital roles conflict and conflict resolution play in children's lives." Melissa Allen, Childhood Education "The editors of this book have created a scholarly, yet eminently readable work that provides a comprehensive and comprehensible coverage of the current knowledge on conflict and development. This is not an ordinary 'review of literature' approach; the contributors of this volume have illuminated what is currently known about conflict and development by delineating what is especially important to learn in the future...Academicians and researchers as well as clinicians should benefit from this material whether it is used as a graduate level text or to provide researchers with hypotheses for studying the role of conflict in human development." Phyllis A. Heath, Child Development Abstracts & Bibliography
