Summary note
"While both positive and negative peer interactions have long been a focus of scientific interest, much less attention has been given to children who tend to refrain from interacting with others. What are the causes of shyness and social withdrawal? How do they affect development? Do solitary preschoolers grow up to be anxious adolescents? Addressing these and other critical questions, this volume brings together leading experts to present the latest ideas, findings, and applications in this growing area of research."--BOOK JACKET.
