In The Friendship Factor he uses vivid case studies to differentiate normal development from potential problems and real distress, exploring how to:
  • Distinguish between a solitary child and a lonely child

  • Encourage the development of "popularity-as-likability," not "dominance"

  • Help an easily angered child be less aggressive

  • Increase a child's social ability with specific skills and strategies
