Understanding and Responding to Violence in Young Children.
Genser, Lillian, Ed.
Presented are proceedings from a 1976 conference entitled "Understanding and Responding to Violence in Young Children" which was attended by over 600 students, teachers, child care workers, and parents. Following an introduction by L. Genser are entries with the following titles and authors: "The Course of the Development of Violence in Young Children" by E. Callard, "Socialization Processes Affecting Violence in Society--What are the Prospects for Change?" by W. Wattenberg, "Violence and the Social Order" by M. Ravitz, and "Workshop Report--Where Do We Go from Here?" by W. Innerd. Among conclusions offered by each contributor are that the research indicates that the infant is not born violent and there is no innate drive toward hostile aggression and that the reality of violence in our society is the major cause of violence in young children.
