In response, the purpose of this study is to assess, within their respective ecological contexts, American and Northern Irish children's (n = 97) reported communication with their parents about war. The results provide support for the presence of developmental differences, wi...

The PTOPS is a measure of preschoolers' social competence across specific social contexts. Second, the psychometric properties of the PTOPS are examined using a clinical sample of maltreated children, a population that is frequently characterized by social incompetence. T...
