Item description for Developmental Psychology by Derek Hook...
Providing a theory-driven approach to psychological development in the South African context, this book brings together three subdisciplines of developmental psychology for undergraduates. A series of practical thinking tasks, case studies, and applied exercises engage and challenge students, helping them relate the subject to everyday life. Topics include psychoanalytic thought, Freud and Jung's psychoanalytic accounts of development, theories of cognitive development, and psychological and sociopolitical contexts of development. Various interest boxes, numerous recommended readings, and extensive glossary terms encourage students to read beyond the text and develop a broad and diverse understanding of the discipline of developmental psychology.
