This review focuses on the nature of individual differences in Theory of Mind (ToM) and examines evidence concerning the links between ToM and children's emotional and behavioural problems. An introduction to ToM is given, followed by a brief synopsis of what is known about the influences on individual differences in ToM. The review considers ToM in relation to peer rejection, attention and behavioural difficulties, bullying and emotional difficulties. Research in these areas is in its infancy and the review describes the difficulties intrinsic to this type of research (for example, measuring ToM) as well as drawing the reader to the importance and potential implications of ToM research in child development and the development of psychological difficulties. Ideas for further research are proposed.
