From Birth to One: The Year of Opportunity

Synopsis

"The first year of life is the year of opportunity. It is when the foundations of our emotional and social well-being together with our motivation and ability to learn begin to be laid down by an ongoing interplay of physical, neurological and psychological processes. Maria Robinson draws upon up to date research to illuminate this process and highlights the importance of understanding the meaning and influence of adult interactions, reactions and behaviour towards their child and the child's impact on the adult. She indicates how the outcomes of early experience can influence the direction of future development so providing insight into the potential reasons for children's behavioural responses. This fascinating book is a valuable resource for all early years practitioners including teachers, social workers and health visitors who wish to understand behaviour within a context of early developmental processes."
