What is the unique mission of developmental psychology? How has it evolved historically? What are its current challenges? The chapters in this collection present the view that research, history and policy are essential and interlocking components of a mature developmental psychology. In sharp contrast with the view that science is value-neutral, developmental psychologists have from the outset pursued the betterment of children and families through educational, childcare and health initiatives.

Book Description:

This book presents state-of-the-art chapters written by leading scholars and policy analysts on topics of broad interest: child care, welfare reform, education, learning environments, child health, and cross-cultural studies. The book's unique emphasis is on connections between research, history, and policy. Most psychology books focus on only one of these components. Viewing developmental psychology in its historical context, we see that research and policies involving children are intimately intertwined.

About the Author:

David B. Pillemer is the Dr Samuel E. Paul Professor of Developmental Psychology at the University of New Hampshire. His research specialty is authobiographical memory across the life span. He has studied memory development in children, memories of adolescence, lashbulbmemories of momentous events and memories of educational experiences.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. What is the unique mission of developmental psychology? How has it evolved historically? What are its current challenges? The chapters in this collection present the view that research, history and policy are essential and interlocking components of a mature developmental psychology. Patterns of human development differ markedly across historical epochs, cultures and social circumstances. Major societal changes examined by contributing authors - the advent of universal compulsory schooling, the adoption of a one-child policy in China, US policy shifts in healthcare, welfare and childcare - present natural experiments in social design. Authors challenge the idea of a clear distinction between basic and applied developmental research. In sharp contrast with the view that science is value-neutral, developmental psychologists have from the outset pursued the betterment of children and families through educational, childcare and health initiatives. An historical perspective reveals the beneficial, if sometimes contentious, interplay between empirical research and social programs and policies. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521533607
