DESCRIPTION

Developmental Psychology combines the best of two worlds in an accessible, research-oriented new textbook, adapted from the popular US text by Parke and Gauvain. It brings an international outlook to the subject, providing broader coverage of topics and a range of practical learning features to help you engage with the subject. The book's topical approach allows for a sophisticated presentation of the theories that guide research in developmental psychology.
