The chapters in this outstanding volume describe the rich insights provided by classic studies in developmental science and, in describing the subsequent research the studies fostered, document the remarkable progress in the field over the past few decades. It should prove valuable to students and professionals alikeRobert V. KailDistinguished Professor of Psychological Sciences, Purdue University
I am really pleased to have found this text and will certainly recommend 'Developmental Psychology Revisiting the classic studies' to my Education Studies and Early Childhood Studies undergraduate students.
Written in an accessible and engaging way, this text does what it says on the tin.
Excellent textbook. Perfect for level one developmental psychology courses.
Highly interesting text that offers a useful introduction to the classic studies in developmental psychology. Whilst these are not all appropriate to counselling, and therefore the foundation degree in counselling we teach, enough of the studies are relatable to the subject and offer a broader context for more grounded understanding of the material.
This is a very useful book which I will recommend to students wishing to supplement the lectures on developmental psychology as part of the specialist practice module and applied sciences module. It revisits the classic developmental psychology research and discusses their influence on contemporary developmental psychology.
Useful background reading. Recommended for students who are interested in a particular area so that they can read more deeply about the original study (often described briefly in the lecture), and its impact on subsequent work. Very valuable resource, particularly for the more committed students, also for PhD students.
While I like the book, not enough material corresponds to this module's syllabus.
Excellent book. Very student friendly. Explains original studies and subsequent research.
This is a very useful book which provides an up-to-date revisiting of classic developmental psychology research. I enjoyed reading the chapters, and found details of how these studies influenced directions of contemporary developmental psychology fascinating.
