A community intervention program, Expanding Children's Caring About Others (ECCAO), increased cooperation and reduced physical and verbal aggression in interactive play. Seven kindergarten cohorts vs. unexposed controls (those not exposed to trained school personnel and parents) showed sustained improvement in these measures. Findings were confirmed in children tracked longitudinally.
