Summary

Our child psychology course book is a superb first step for beginners and that valuable stride forward for teachers and workers with children who wish to deepen their skill base.

It is the perfect choice for anyone who suspects they might want to pursue in a career in child psychology but does not yet feel they are in complete possession of the facts of what the field entails.

Child psychology is the study of how a young person develops from birth up to adolescence: how he changes emotionally through that time, how his own identity is formed, and how he will eventually learn to be able to speak a language. It examines how a child evolves through the processes of information processing and cognitive development.

Behaviourally it looks at how a child begins to understand social behaviours and integrate accordingly. It investigates how motor skills develop, social skills and how identity is formed.

This comprehensive course gives you firm foundation knowledge into how a child develops and gives insights into why a child behaves the way he does.

very well-read

it was a very high-level overview. But it was well-read and the references to psychological theory or very well presented.
