The most up-to-date edition of a leading resource on the research and theory of the social development of children

In the newly revised Third Edition of The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Childhood Social Development, a team of eminent researchers delivers a current and comprehensive discussion of the research and theory of childhood social development. With chapters written by an international collection of leaders in their respective fields, this edited volume offers robust coverage of a range of disciplinary perspectives, including psychological, sociological, anthropolgical, evolutionary, religious, cultural, ecological, athletic, and more 

The latest edition offers brand-new chapters on helping children with autism, the impact of social networking platforms on childhood social development, the influence of mass media, war and famine, the climate crisis, and the influence of the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

Containing authoritative explorations of child social development from pre-school to the onset of adolescence, The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Childhood Social Development also provides:

  • A thorough introduction to historical perspectives on the social development of children, including the conceptual and empirical precursors of contemporary social development research
  • Comprehensive explorations of various disciplinary perspectives, including behavioral genetics, the brain and social development in childhood, and evolutionary perspectives on social development
  • Practical discussions of the ecological contexts of childhood social development, including the relationship between the physical environment and social development
  • In-depth examinations of culture and immigration, including the social development of immigrant children with a focus on Europe, and on Asian and Latinx children in the US. 

Perfect for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of courses in child psychology, human development, or educational psychology, The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Childhood Social Development will also earn a place in the libraries of researchers seeking a one-stop, comprehensive resource for the social development of children.
