About the Book

By merely looking at the contents herein one may easily have an idea about the extensive ground that has been attempted to cover in designing this work. So no reference appears to be necessary to the same. In explanations of various psychological concepts and ideas, both old and new, we have mainly depended upon the contentions of authorities in the field as evinced through their laboratory findings and interpretations. In this connection at several relevant places, illustrations from actual life situations of children in relation to their behaviour and responses with parents at home and with teachers in schools, have been given. This approach has been followed in order to make this work more readable, interesting and useful to all concerned. At the same time an attempt has also been made to indicate how the parents and teachers should perform their duties in relation to their children in their respective places, in order that the optimum development of children may be ensured. It is because of this style that it is felt that this work will be useful not only in universities and college but also to general parents at home and teachers in school. Students of educational psychology are also required to understand the application of elementary statistics for understanding the general trends of behavioural and mental growth of children. Hence, an independent chapter has been devoted to this subject also. Some psychological experiments are also prescribed for students of educational psychology. So towards the close of the book we have explained the basic elements of 15 experiments which the students are generally required to perform. Contents - Part 1 - Psychology and Education 1.
