Nurturing Personal, Social and Emotional Development in Early Childhood
A Practical Guide to Understanding Brain Development and Young Children's BehaviourBook - 2018
This direct guide supports practitioners in nurturing personal, social and emotional development (PSED) in young children by demystifying brain development research.
Condensing a wealth of recent research and theory around PSED into practical guidance, it gives professionals the knowledge and understanding they need to critically evaluate their own practice and find the best course of action to support PSED in young children. From the perspective of neuroscience, it explores what can help or hinder development, considers why some children bite and why toddlers have tantrums, and questions how well-intentioned actions, such as reward systems or putting new foods on a plate for children to 'just try', may be misguided.
