This volume explores the key developmental transitions that take place as 1- to 3-year-olds leave infancy behind and begin to develop the social and emotional knowledge, skills, and regulatory abilities of early childhood. Leading investigators examine the multiple interacting factors that lead to socioemotional competence in this pivotal period, covering both typical and atypical development. Presented is innovative research that has yielded compelling insights into toddlers' relationships, emotions, play, communication, prosocial behavior, self-control, autonomy, and attempts to understand themselves and others. The final chapter presents a systematic framework for socioemotional assessment. This book will be important reading for developmental psychologists; early childhood education researchers and professionals; students in these areas. Also of interest to mental health clinicians working with young children and their families. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level courses in social development or early childhood development.

Industry Reviews

"An extraordinary gift to the field. The book's clarifying, holistic vision of the toddler years, cutting-edge scholarship, expansive coverage, and readability make it an indispensable treasure trove of knowledge for researchers, teachers of early childhood courses, graduate students desiring to deepen their understanding of this vital period of change, and clinicians focusing on early prevention and treatment of developmental problems." - Laura E. Berk, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Illinois State University, USA "A 'must read.' Brownell and Kopp have assembled an international 'who's who' of eminent researchers to review such topics as the emerging self-system, self-regulatory processes, altruism and empathy, pretend play and peer interactions, and social communication. Of special interest are contributions on early toddler atypicality. This would be an excellent text for graduate-level seminars in early social, emotional, and personality development." - Kenneth H. Rubin, Director, Center for Children, Relationships, and Culture, Department of Human Development, University of Maryland, USA
