Peer relationships in child development
Contemporary Topics in Developmental Psychology Edited by Nancy Eisenberg Prominent developmentalists, biologists, social psychologists, and clinical psychologists discuss a broad range of developmental issues, as well as issues that are interrelated with social and clinical psychology. Separate sections are devoted to motor development and self-regulation, cognitive and perceptual development, social development, development of self worth, the social context, and life cycle development. The clinical implications of developmental research are discussed, and principles from social psychology are applied to an understanding of the effectiveness of various childrearing practices, the formation of social values, and the development of cognition related to self-perceptions and achievement. 1987 (0 471 82913-7) 464 pp. Moral Development Through Social Interaction Edited by William M.
