Child and Adolescent Development introduces entry-level students of Developmental Psychology to the psychological aspects of a child's development with specific application to the South African environment featuring local case studies and examples, as well as South African research. The book adopts a socio-cultural perspective to development, deriving theoretically from the work of Vygotsky and Luria. This is particularly useful in the South African context as it focuses on how the socio-cultural context shapes (and is shaped by) the child's developing cognitive functions. Thebook also focuses on developing students' cognitive skills by building conceptual bridges and using accessible language.
Joanne Hardman is Senior Lecturer at the University of Cape Town.
