Social Development

Social Development

October 1994 | 304 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Published in cooperation with the Society for Personality and Social Psychology To some degree, the issues raised by social psychologists and developmentalists overlap, each of them offering unique possibilities by which to explore questions of interest. Social Development addresses this issue and attempts to foster an awareness of the interesting research on the interface of social and developmental psychology. Written by a cast of leading researchers, this volume provides a multi-level perspective on the common boundaries between social and developmental psychology with an eye toward synthesizing research from many fields including personality, education, social work, and family studies. The contributors raise questions that are often not recognized by investigators due to their lack of knowledge of work and ideas outside their own discipline. Some of the specific subjects covered are individual differences in predicting others' thoughts and feelings, naturally occurring interpersonal expectancies, self-conceptions and their development, and social development and self-monitoring. Researchers and students involved in social psychology, developmental psychology, personality, social work, family studies, sociology, and adolescence will find Social Development to be a lucid, insightful, and interesting volume.
