This new edition of the European adaptation of Anita Woolfolk’s market-leading US text, Educational Psychology, is essential reading for anyone studying or interested in education and learning from a psychology perspective.
The second edition includes new work in the areas of Assessment for Learning and Attachment Theory, as well as reflecting recent changes in Special Educational Needs provision. The text shows how information and ideas drawn from cutting-edge research in educational psychology can be applied to solve the everyday problems of teaching and child development.
'This wide-ranging and theoretically grounded text is set to become a classic in the psychology of education.'
Alec Webster, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Bristol
'This is an exceptionally strong book that explains the psychology in education in a clear and vivid way. I also appreciated the European approach of the book… I would certainly recommend educators to use this book.'
Sofie Loyens, Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands
