Emotional Development and Families
Socialization across the lifespan
|Publication Date||September 2017|
This lively and engaging book conducts a thorough review of the current research literature in developmental psychology and socialisation, and then clearly links theory to practical applications in both clinical and everyday situations.
Life’s first important lessons on how to handle emotions often emerge early on within family relationships, forming the foundation for emotional development over the life-span. Couples, siblings, parents and extended family members all have profound influences on each other's emotional lives as well as on the lives of the children they are socialising.
Emotional Development and Families:
- Provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to how emotional experiences, expressions, and regulation are socialised within families
- Takes an international and cross-cultural approach to a complex and nuanced topic
- Combines classic studies with contemporary evidence-based research to demonstrate how biology, the environment, and development interact.
Filled with a wealth of resources and suggestions for further reading, this book is ideal for students of developmental psychology, family studies, social work, counselling, education studies and clinical psychology.
