Bagwell (psychology, U. of Richmond) and Schmidt (psychology, Moravian College) explore the significance of friendship for social, emotional, and cognitive development in childhood and adolescence and how its context is significant for adjustment and well-being. Writing for developmental and clinical psychologists and professionals in related fields, they describe how friendship is a unique aspect of children's peer relations, how it is conceptualized by several disciplines, how it is considered as a developmental context from normative and individual differences perspectives, and strategies for assessment. They detail the normative experience of friendship in various stages of childhood, how they change as children age, and what developmental processes might contribute to them, as well as individual differences, the impact of the broader cultural context, cross-cultural similarities and differences, and interventions to help children who have trouble forming and maintaining friendships.
