Originally published in 1975, this book aimed to throw light on the practical use of psychology in children’s education, for the benefit of students, practising teachers, parents, or anyone concerned with education. Both educators and educated are considered, and particular attention is given to the behaviour of the whole person, both inside and outside the bounds of conventional teaching practice.
