Anger and aggression within the peer context is particularly emphasized. The first section of the chapter focuses on the theory underlying anger and aggression in young children, and the second section examines current intervention approaches and their outcomes. The third section includes recommendations for future directions in intervention development, implementation, and evaluation.
