Welcome to Developmental Psychology in Practice – a space for parents, teachers, and anyone with an interest in learning about child development to explore key psychological concepts and research.

The field of developmental psychology publishes a lot of very important and interesting information about the physical, cognitive, social, intellectual, and emotional changes that occur throughout our children’s lives, but most research findings rarely reach public awareness.

Developmental Psychology in Practice was created by researchers at Edinburgh Napier University in attempt to close this gap. The main purpose of this blog is to provide information about psychological research in clear and easily accessible way via blog posts and videos.
