9780393124019: Developmental Psychology: The Growth of Mind and Behavior

Clear, compelling, and authoritative.

Frank Keil’s Developmental Psychology represents his vision of how psychology should be taught and is based on nearly four decades of teaching a lecture course in developmental psychology and conducting developmental research. With a cohesive narrative, clear art program, and carefully crafted pedagogy, the book guides students through material that is as rich as it is intriguing. Keil’s narrative reflects his passion for engaging students’ intellectual curiosity with an analytical approach that explores the big questions, links theory with evidence, and treats developmental psychology as a science. Developmental Psychology invites readers to celebrate the beauty and to understand the depth of psychological development.
