One Source of Childhood Aggression
This chapter describes how children's thinking about the world around them has been linked with an increased inclination to use aggressive behavior when interacting with other children. If a child is bumped hard from behind by a peer, predicting whether that child will turn around and throw a punch at a peer's head or look back to find out what is going on requires an understanding of how that child thinks about and interprets the behavior of other children. The chapter discusses attributions of intent; how bias works with memory; how memory and attributional bias support aggressive behavior; and a research-based program of behavior change.
