Eine Vielzahl von Faktoren wie Mobilität, Migration, Inklusion, berufliche Übergänge und Medien prägen heutige individuelle Entwicklungs- und Erziehungsprozesse. Das Handbuch gibt einen umfassenden Einblick in diese und andere zentrale Aspekte der individuellen Entwicklung und Erziehung über die gesamte Lebensspanne. Es führt dabei Grundlagenwissen mit Anwendungsperspektiven und Praxisbeispielen zusammen. Ein Schwerpunkt der Darstellung liegt auf den Kontexten individueller Entwicklungsverläufe in den verschiedenen Lebensphasen und der Erziehung. Hintergrund dafür ist, dass Stabilität und Veränderung der Person ohne deren Wechselwirkung mit Familie, Peers oder Bildungseinrichtungen nicht angemessen zu verstehen sind. Gleichzeitig werden auch die Bedingungen des heutigen gesellschaftlichen Umfelds in den Blick genommen. Ein Beispiel ist die zunehmende Diversität und die damit verbundene Frage nach einem erzieherischen Umgang mit Unterschiedlichkeit, der dem Individuum in seiner Entwicklung in förderlicher Weise gerecht wird. Das Handbuch ist ideal für angehende wie schon tätige Praktiker und Professionals in verschiedenen Anwendungsfeldern. Gleichzeitig bietet es Studierenden der Psychologie, der Erziehungswissenschaft und benachbarter Disziplinen einen verständlich aufbereiteten Überblick zu wichtigen und aktuellen Themen der ökologischen Entwicklungspsychologie.

A definitive reference on intra- and inter-group processes across a range of age and cultural contexts Children from infancy develop attachments to significant others in their immediate social environment, and over time become aware of other groups (e.g. gender, ethnicity, age, classroom, sports) that they do or do not belong to and why. Recent research shows that children’s attitudes, beliefs and behaviours are significantly influenced by these memberships and that the influence increases through childhood. This Handbook delivers the first comprehensive, international reference on this critical topic.
