About the Author

David Cohen is a psychologist, film maker and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine. His film on the Soham murders, When Holly Went Missing, was nominated for a BAFTA award.


"This book serves a number of varied audiences, including education professionals, academic audiences and all those connected with early years activities. It also provides a sound introduction for those working in health care contexts and would be ideal for individuals working in Children's Centres. The book is equally of use to all primary school teachers and all those working in early years contexts. For academic audiences, the book could be used as a foundation and undergraduate level text ." (Kagari Shibazaki, University of Huddersfield)

"David Cohen's readable and stimulating waltz through the history of child psychology provides anecdotes, exercises, and ideas for parents and educators alike. The author covers major controversies, theories and debates in a friendly and outspoken manner and, in doing so, shows us the broad range and also the limitations of the classic explanations of, and research into, children's mental development." (Dr Nicky Hayes, psychologist and author, University of the Highlands and Islands)
