Child Development: Risk and Opportunity
CHILD DEVELOPMENT: RISK AND OPPORTUNITY is the first book of its kind for courses in Child Development. It takes an advocacy stance, providing at once a good reason and strong motivation for the study of developmental psychology. The title reflects the author's contention that anyone entrusted with the care or company of children is entrusted also with the task of creating environments, social, cultural, emotional, physical and cognitive, capable of maximizing the developmental potential of children.
