Early Socialisation looks at sociability and attachment and how they relate to emotional and cognitive development. Topics covered include: bonding, attachment, deprivation, separation and privation, as well as enrichment. Social and cultural variations are considered, and theories of attachment and loss are described and evaluated.


'Will prove a godsend to students new to Psychology especially because of the care the author takes in carrying her readership with her at the right pace by means of frequent evaluation sections, summaries and conclusions.' - Professor Rudolf Shaffer (Strathclyde University)

'Lots of variety and levels of challenge. Excellent!' - Paul Humphreys (Revisor for A-Level Psychology)

About the Series

Routledge Modular Psychology

The Routledge Modular Psychology series is a completely new approach to introductory level psychology, tailor made to the new modular style of teaching.

The books have been written especially for those students new to higher level study, whether at school home, college or university.

They include specially designed features to help with technique, such as model essay at an average level with an examiners comments to show how extra marks can be gained. The authors are all examiners and teachers at introductory level.

The Routledge modular texts are all user friendly and accessible and include the following features:

  • Practice essays with specialist commentary to show how to achieve a higher grade
