Barry Schneider explains the dynamics by which home, school, and culture may come to influence the emergence of the child's social competence. The theoretical foundations and scope of relevant research are depicted and criticized in a constructive way.
This series provides a showcase of original contributions of the highest quality as well as thorough reviews of existing theories suitable for advanced students and researchers.
Many will be useful as course texts for higher level study; applied topics are well represented and social psychology is defined broadly to include other psychological areas like social development, or the social psychology of abnormal behaviour.
A reflection of contemporary social psychology, the series is a rich source of information for dissertations, new research projects and seminars.
