Social and Emotional Development:
First EditionKaren Rosen©2016
From the moment we are born our relationships with others play a vital role in our development.
Have you ever wondered how an infant develops attachments? Or why these relationships influence a child's growing sense of self? Perhaps you're curious about the effect of early relationships and the self on social and emotional development?
In exploring questions like these, Karen Rosen guides you through the fascinating and interrelated themes of attachment and the self. Bringing together key theories and research in a unique integrative approach, this textbook is essential reading for students of developmental psychology as well as clinicians working in the field.
- The book is based on the author's own course which has been running for 10 years so she knows how to pitch the subject for the undergraduate level.
- This is a popular topic with both students and researchers.
