"This is a textbook for the course in developmental psychology, or human growth and development, whether taught in the department of psychology, in the department or school of education, or in home economics. It presents the essential concepts, research findings, and interpretations upon which an objectively derived developmental psychology must be based. Using a broad, eclectic approach, this volume emphasizes personal and social adjustments of the individual at increasingly higher levels of development. It reviews recent findings and interpretations of physical, intellectual, emotional, moral, and social growth, with special attention to environmental influences of the home, school, and community. Stress is placed on the developing individual's interests, attitudes, and social activities. Selected quantitative materials and theoretical concepts dealing with such topics as emotion, intelligence, mental health, dynamic needs, personality, and the like, are included to provide breadth and comprehensiveness"--Preface.
