9781606235225: The Development of Shyness and Social Withdrawal (Social, Emotional, and Personality Development in Context)

While both positive and negative peer interactions have long been a focus of scientific interest, much less attention has been given to children who tend to refrain from interacting with peers. This volume brings together leading authorities to review progress in understanding the development, causes, and consequences of shyness and social withdrawal. Compelling topics include:

 

*The interplay of biological, psychological, family, and interpersonal processes in shyness and social withdrawal from infancy through adolescence.

*The impact on peer relationships and academic performance.

*Links among shyness, social withdrawal, and social anxiety disorder.

*The positive side of unsociability—when to "leave children alone."

*Implications for clinical practice and educational interventions.

Review:

"An excellent and needed summary of the evidence on the multifaceted concept of shyness. This volume will be of great value to investigators probing this domain, as well as to psychologists and psychiatrists who treat children. The book shows how shyness, social withdrawal, and social anxiety are distinct phenomena with distinct etiological pathways, even though the differences among them are often overlooked."--Jerome Kagan, PhD, Daniel and Amy Starch Research Professor of Psychology Emeritus, Harvard University "This is the definitive reference on shyness and social withdrawal, and a service to the field. Contributors have written accessible, up-to-date reviews on diverse aspects of the topic and also grapple with thorny theoretical issues. Even experienced scholars in the area will learn much of value from reading this volume. At the same time, the book is appropriate and accessible for practitioners and for graduate students interested in peer interactions, shyness and social withdrawal, and social anxiety and avoidance."--Nancy Eisenberg, PhD, Regents' Professor of Psychology, Arizona State University "This coherent volume provides an up-to-date review of a major aspect of socioemotional development. The editors begin with a masterly overview of conceptual approaches and relevant constructs. Chapters from highly regarded experts range from  biological moderators of withdrawal to contextual influences and clinical implications. This book is a 'must' for anyone interested in understanding the many faces of shyness."--Joan Stevenson-Hinde, PhD, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom

"Rubin and Coplan provide a rich literary buffet of current research in developmental aspects of shyness and related issues. Most of the contributors are recognize experts in their fields....The Development of Shyness and Social Withdrawal will be of interest to a wide audience, including developmental psychologists, social psychologists, psychotherapists, psychopathologists, and professionals in special education." (PsycCRITIQUES 2010-02-20)

"This volume answers many questions about shyness....The writing is uniformly clear throughout, which is admirable, given the multiple authors. This book will be valuable to many different audiences, from the more casual reader in need of a one-stop review, to the researcher seeking inspiration, to the clinician seeking guidance. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals." (Choice 2011-01-03)
