Description - Child Development: Thinking About Theories Texts in Developmental Psychology by Phillip T. Slee
Many areas of developmental psychology have witnessed much important research in recent years, challenging old assumptions and bringing new findings and perspectives to light. The "Texts in Developmental Psychology" series has been designed to embrace the emergence of new areas and developments in the field from a global perspective, providing state-of-the-art, higher level introductions to major topic areas. Each volume is written by specialists who combine empirical data and a synthesis of recent research to deliver cutting-edge science in a format accessible to both students and researchers. This text critically examines both modern and postmodern contributions to theoretical development in child and adolescent psychology. It has been written specifically taking into account the findings from a focus group of psychology students to include pedagogical features such as an overview of theories linking the various schools of thought, ideas for further study and links to selected websites, as well as recent developments in theoretical thinking including evolutionary theory, feminism and indigenous theory, and implications of theory for practice.
