Social and Emotional Development in Infancy and Early ChildhoodEdited by
- Janette B. Benson
- Marshall Haith
Research is increasingly showing the effects of family, school, and culture on the social, emotional and personality development of children. Much of this research concentrates on grade school and above, but the most profound effects may occur much earlier, in the 0-3 age range. This volume consists of focused articles from the authoritative Encyclopedia of Infant and Early Childhood Development that specifically address this topic and collates research in this area in a way that isn't readily available in the existent literature, covering such areas as adoption, attachment, birth order, effects of day care, discipline and compliance, divorce, emotion regulation, family influences, preschool, routines, separation anxiety, shyness, socialization, effects of television, etc. This one volume reference provides an essential, affordable reference for researchers, graduate students and clinicians interested in social psychology and personality, as well as those involved with cultural psychology and developmental psychology.
Researchers interested in social psychology and personality, cultural psychology, and developmental psychology.

"The book is an argument, not an opinion piece or political manifesto. It presents a pile of research findings, and makes a case for what they tell usâ¦Iâm grateful for Lynn Waterhouseâs book and fervently hope it will help knock autism research out of a rut (not to mention help improve everyday thinking about autism)â¦ Rethinking Autism moves the conversation forward and I hope it will change our thinking for the better."-- Intellectualizing blog,December 17, 2013
