Special issue on Social Cognitions; bullying and victimization in Autism

A special issue of the European Journal of Developmental Psychology was published in honour of its founding editor, Willem Koops, who is stepping down as a dean of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences at Utrecht University. Willem was very pleasantly surprised when Carolien Rieffe handed him the issue at his goodbye dinner. The special  issue  on social cognitions was edited by Paul L. Harris, Carolien Rieffe and Marcel van Aken.  One of the papers in this special issue is on different bullying roles and shows that especially anger plays a dominant role in bullying and victimization for young adolescents with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
