Developmental Psychology, second edition, provides a theory-driven approach to understanding development from two perspectives – psychoanalytic and cognitive. These two perspectives complement one another: a psychoanalytic focus is based on understandings of how the mind affects the development of personality, while a cognitive focus offers insight into the development of the mind. The third section of this book brings together thoughts on the South African context and how it impacts upon development. Developmental Psychology is a broad and integrative introduction to developmental psychology for undergraduates, postgraduates and health professionals.
