Psychology and Societal Development

Md. Firoz Akhtar (Author)

Developmental psychology examines the influences of nature and nurture and on the process of human development, and processes of change in context and across time. Many researchers are interested in the interaction between personal characteristics, the individual’s behaviour and environmental factors, including social context and the built environment. Ongoing debates include biological essentialism vs. neuroplasticity and stages of development vs. dynamic systems of development. Developmental psychology involves a range of fields, such as, educational psychology, child psychopathology, forensic developmental psychology, child development, cognitive psychology, ecological psychology, and cultural psychology. Influential developmental psychologists from the 20th century include Urie Bronfenbrenner, Erik Erikson, Sigmund Freud, Jean Piaget, Barbara Rogoff, Esther Thelen, and Lev Vygotsky. Sigmund Freud believed that well all has a conscious, preconscious, and unconscious level. In the conscious we are aware of our mental process. The preconscious involves information that, though not currently in our thoughts, can be brought into consciousness. Lastly, the unconscious includes mental processes we are unaware of. This book analyses various aspects of this subject. The book will be highly useful to students and teachers.
