Overview

Although conflict in human affairs has fascinated theorists and researchers for centuries, this is the first book that focuses on the role of conflict in psychological and social development. Leading scholars in developmental and clinical psychology present findings from psychology, anthropology, sociology, sociolinguistics, and family relations to provide an intriguing picture of what is known about conflict in development and a preview of future research. Conflict is not always a negative, destructive event; the 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.
