This is the final book in a series of four which form part of the Open University course Child Development. The series provides a detailed and thorough undergraduate–level introduction to the central concepts, theories, current issues and research evidence in developmental psychology.

Developmental Psychology in Action looks at how psychologists contribute to the development and well–being of children in practical ways. The role of psychologists and psychological theory is considered with respect to specific topics which focus on child development in the context of social, educational and clinical issues. The chapters are authored by active researchers and practitioners in each field. Each chapter provides an introduction to the topic under discussion and aims to stimulate reflection and evaluation.
