What is included with this book?


The study of the self--and the processes associated with the self--are at the cutting edge of research on social and personality development. This volume brings together researchers from diverse theoretical perspectives to address a wide variety of issues associated with self processes including competence, autonomy, relatedness, and attachment. As such, the book provides a unique perspective on the role of self processes in child development and the importance of emotion as an organizing aspect of the self.
