Wenger A.L. (Ed.) Psychological Lexicon, 2005
The dictionary “Developmental Psychology” covers concepts and categories relating to the widest range of mental development processes in ontogenesis and phylogenesis. Some of these concepts are specific to developmental psychology, while others are used in general psychology, but with respect to problems of mental development, they somewhat change their meaning or acquire an additional one. Much attention is paid to the applied areas of developmental psychology and concepts related to psychological practice.
