Adolescents and War

This chapter gives a full theoretical treatment to the often invoked, yet inadequately validated presumption that violence exposure leads to violent or aggressive development in children. It outlines the variety of potential child, family, and social factors that inform if and when aggression in war-exposed children is likely to develop. Suggestions for future research and interventions are provided; namely, that research and interventions among “war's children and adolescents” will benefit from integrative approaches that combine individual, familial, and social antecedents of aggression. Furthermore, interventions are more likely to be effective if they are developmentally tailored and focused comprehensively on addressing deficiencies in cognitive, emotional and psychophysiological processing of violent experiences.
