9780340808177: Child Development: Thinking About Theories

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 students and researchers alike.

Child Development: Thinking About Theories is one of the few texts to critically examine both modern and postmodern contributions to theoretical development in child and adolescent psychology. The text has been written specifically taking into account the findings from a focus group of Honours 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 the latest developments in theoretical thinking including evolutionary theory, feminism and indigenous theory, and implications of theory for practice. Drawing from a worldwide background of research, the text is unique in that it contains many examples from Australia and other Pacific nations.

This clear and concisely written text by two university lecturers in the field of child and adolescent psychology will prove a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate/Honours students of psychology and other closely related disciplines.

Book Description:

Clearly the authors have addressed the chief concerns that emerged from their focus group...I quote how one member of the focus group described his learning of developmental psychology:'...like going into a dark room with a torch - one only ever sees bits and pieces and cannot put the whole picture together'. He went on to hope '...that a book of this sort might be able to act like a switch to illuminate the whole room'. I would suggest that Phillip Slee and Rosalyn Shute have done a remarkably good job at acting as the switch and I would highly recommend this book to any higher-level undergraduate, postgraduate or lecturer in child development or related disciplines.
