Critical Psychology | Developmental Psychology (General)
Key chapters cover development across the lifespan, including the prenatal period, infancy, childhood, adolescence and adulthood, while activities help readers build the underpinning generic critical thinking and transferable skills they need to become independent learners, and to meet the requirements of their programme of study.
'It is light and inviting...and the text is provided in a student-friendy format.... this book is clearly written by someone with an enthusiasm and interest for how students today learn' -
Psychology Learning and Teaching
I would recommend that students purchase a copy of this book because it provides them with clear information on the expectations of typical children's development and how to link this to theory.
A good read for undergraduate learners!
A very useful book for reference and for learning the basics of the theories.
Includes some excellent critical thinking exercises
A simple to follow book, ideal for introducing students to developmental psychology. I shall recommend this book.
This Book provides comprehenmsive information and valuable teaching suggestions. It is good as it provides links to further reading so is a good introductory text to reseraching information
An excellent text, extremely insightful, well presented and a good text for health and social care students.
This book was sent to me, but I am not involved at the moment with this area.
This is a well written text that is accessible for undergraduates. I particularly liked the range of set activities that work well to get students thinking. As an introductory text slightly more topic coverage would be useful but the book would work really well as a companion reading to a main, perhaps more expansive, core text.
