Developmental Psychology in Action
Developmental Psychology in Action pdf by Clare Wood, Karen Littleton and Kieron Sheehy
Developmental Psychology in Action looks at how psychologists contribute to the development and well-being of children in practical ways. The role of psychologists and psychological theory is considered with respect to specific topics which focus on child development in the context of social, educational and clinical issues.
A recurring theme in the chapters concerns the role of psychologists as ‘agents’ of society who intervene to improve children’s lives. Through their research and practice psychologists are also implicated in the construction of particular accounts and representations of the child and notions of competence.
The chapters thus demonstrate that developmental psychologists do not exist in isolation from the social contexts that they study and that it is in these contexts that they actively create their subject.
