Welcome to the Kortext section on child and developmental psychology. Here, you can find a range of ebooks to help you in your psychology studies, research, or work. We’ve outlined what you can expect to find in this category below.
Developmental psychology looks at behavioural, social, emotional and mental development. A focus on childhood and adolescence is key to this area of work, and psychologists study stages of development individually, as well as how different aspects of development can affect one another.
Often, psychologists specialise in one specific area, such as autistic spectrum disorders in children, speech and language development, social anxiety, educational development, or overcoming trauma. Others prefer to research at how the stages of a child’s life contribute to their overall development and affect them in adulthood.
Ebooks in this section take the form of etextbooks, therapists guides on working with children, collections of articles, ebooks for parents, explanations of developmental theories, and much more.
These digital materials are aimed at many different audiences, so that whatever your level of understanding, there is an ebook to guide you. For example, you can find digital books aimed at parents who wish to find out more about the cognitive or behavioural development of their child at a certain age, right through to research findings aimed at academics in the field.
If you’ve had a look through the section and you’re still not quite sure what you’re looking for, why not search by title or author. We have over 500,000 digital books in our collection, so we’re sure you’ll find something you’ll love! Enjoy reading!
