This lecture discusses ongoing work in Dr. Dirks’ lab that examines how children respond to different types of peer aggression, how those responses are perceived by important people in their social worlds, and how the effectiveness of a given response may vary depending upon who is enacting it and when they do it. Implications for intervention programs targeting children’s social functioning will also be discussed.
