BLUEPRINT: How Our Childhood Makes Us Who We Are


BLUEPRINT: How Our Childhood Makes Us Who We Are

LUCY MADDOX    Book Number: 87166    Product format: Paperback

A nuanced book where there is no blame or judgement but rather information about how our early life can shape us but also the limitations of that, and how other factors are at play as well. 'Blueprint' marshals evidence from an enormous range of studies in a warm and relaxed style for easy reading. Chapters include Milestone-Spotting and Going Off Track, Epigenetic Colouring-In, Learning to See, How to Train A Person, Learning Right from Wrong, Thinking About Thinking, What Do Siblings Do To Us?, Playtime, Schooltime, Teenage Kicks and Fully Grown. From beginning to say simple words like 'Mama' and learning how to walk around unaided, to the first day of school and forming new friendships, everyone has been a child. The roots of our adult selves go right back to our first experiences - how we think, act and interact is influenced by our early years, yet most people don't know the key findings from the juiciest child development studies that can give us insight into ourselves. Dr Lucy Maddox weaves together cutting-edge research, everyday experience and clinical examples and she is a Senior Clinical Advisor for the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies. 312pp in paperback, diagrams.
