Description - Childhood Studies by Dominic Wyse

This text introduces students to the key issues in the study of childhood, from infancy through to adulthood, from an interdisciplinary and multi-professional perspective. This is a broad-ranging introductory guide to key issues in the study of childhood. It approaches childhood studies from an interdisciplinary and multi-professional perspective. It presents the basics of psychology, social welfare, education, health, law, culture, rights, politics, and economics as they relate to children. For each discipline, the role of relevant professionals, such as social workers, nursery teachers, paediatric nurses and child lawyers, is also considered. Contributors have both practical and academic backgrounds in a range of specialist areas. Each chapter includes an independent learning activity, case studies, a glossary and annotated bibliography. It will inspire debate in the classroom about childhood issues.
