Conflict Resolution between Friends during Middle Childhood
Joshi, Anupama
Journal of Genetic Psychology, v169 n2 p133-148 Jun 2008
The author interviewed 74 children (ages 8.5-11.5 years) in an exploratory study of interpersonal conflict resolution between children. Results suggest that children (a) most frequently used assertion and discussion as conflict resolution strategies, (b) used more than one strategy in a single conflict, and (c) used a strategy that corresponded to the strategy used by the other child in the conflict. The author discusses the implications of the findings and suggests areas for future research.
