Personality Development is a comprehensive overview of infant observation and personality development. It starts at inter-utero life and goes through to adulthood, focusing on the emotional tasks involved at each stage of development and the interplay of internal processes and external circumstances.
* intra-uterine life and the experience of birth
* babyhood: becoming a person in the family
* the toddler and the wider world
* the latency period.
Using clinical and observational material, it will be of interest to those teaching personality development courses, as well as mental health and child care professionals.
