Ecological Perspectives and Social Development

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapterpeer-review


This chapter will introduce the central components of ecological perspectives, and how they can be used to understand children’s social development. The roots of ecological approaches will be examined, along with some key perspectives that frequent literature in the field. Two areas of social development (parenting and attachment, and bullying) will be used to demonstrate how ecological positions can be applied. Implications for both research and intervention will be explored, along with challenges in the field.
