About this title


Childhood Social Development: The Essential Readings provides students with a selection of some of the key articles by key researchers in this core area of developmental psychology.

From the Back Cover:

This volume provides an authoritative and up-to-date overview of research and theory in childhood social development from pre-school age to the onset of adolescence. Chapters are contributed by experts in the field from Australasia, Europe and North America and cover 30 topics currently of importance in the field, in terms of research, applied research and policy.

The Handbook starts with an historical overview and follows with major sections. The first focusses on a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Following sections address influences on development, the family context, the peer group, social skills and social cognition, play, helping and moral reasoning, as well as cooperation, competition, aggression and bullying. These, in addition to the final section on children with special needs, make this volume appropriate for practitioners who deal with children as well as for college and university teachers, researchers, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Each chapter summarises existing knowledge in the field, synthesising the latest research in an accessible manner, whilst also highlighting areas of growing debate. Integration and coherence are provided by editorial commentaries prefacing each section.
