Developmental Psychology Section

The Developmental Psychology Section promotes the scientific study of the cognitive, emotional, social, perceptual, and biological changes in humans that occur from before birth, through infancy, childhood, adolescence and into adulthood.

Since its inaugural meeting in 1972, the Developmental Psychology Section has had two primary missions.

The first is to encourage, and support the development of high quality research into all aspects of developmental psychology.

The second is to raise and promote the profile of British developmental research, on both a local and international level, with policy-makers, practitioners, and the general public.
