Though it is not well known, humanistic psychologists of various persuasions have been studying child development for over a century with very little recognition. The purpose of The Whole Child is to bring together Eugene M. DeRobertis’s most recent efforts to establish the foundations of an existential-humanistic approach to child development and further develop existential-humanistic self-development theory (EHSDT). The philosophical-anthropological foundations of the book reach back as far as Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas. Existential-humanistic child psychology is rooted in the works of individuals like Wilhelm Dilthey, Edmund Husserl, Alfred Adler, William Stern, Kurt Koffka, Heinz Werner, Kurt Lewin, Charlotte Bühler, D. W. Winnicott, Ernest Schachtel, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Karen Horney, Carl Rogers, M. J. Langeveld, Heinz Kohut, and others. Contemporary applications in the current volume include the role of the imagination in child development, embodiment, well-being research, dynamic systems approaches to child development, and the impact of consumer culture on self-development. This book is the follow-up volume to his Humanizing Child Developmental Theory: A Holistic Approach (2008).

From the Back Cover:

"The existential-humanistic tradition in child development is very important. Sadly, it is often ignored. DeRobertis has written a scholarly, readable book that suggests how some of the great thinking in this tradition points to exciting new possibilities." 

-William Crain, Professor of Psychology, The City College of New York,
author of Theories of Development: Concepts and Applications
"In this engaging and readable book, Dr. DeRobertis powerfully demonstrates how important humanistic and existential approaches are for a genuine understanding of children and their development. Drawing upon a wide range of thinkers, from Edmund Husserl to Carl Rogers, he addresses critical issues such as the nature of the self, the effect of a consumer culture on children, the importance of community, and the role of imagination in thinking about the world of children. DeRobertis is a creative and valuable guide to this area of psychology."

-Steen Halling, Professor of Psychology, Seattle University,
author of Intimacy, Transcendence, and Psychology:
Closeness and Openness in Everyday Life
