Psychologists mostly from the US, but some from Europe, explore the range of emotions children from preschoolers to adolescents feel during moral transgressions, how and why acts of victimization become emotionally charged, what the emotions can tell researchers about people who become routine victimizers and those who learn to inhibit victimizing behaviors, and whether victimization is primarily affective, or cognitive abilities also play a major role. They cover theoretical foundations; factors from neuroscience to culture that influence aggression and morality; and assessment, interventions, and clinical perspectives. Among specific topics are emotion in early conscience, callous-unemotional traits and aggression in youth, and a cognitive-emotional model for the etiology of youth violence.
