Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The kewpie doll effect is a term used in developmental psychology to help explain how a child's physical features, such as lengthened forehead and rounded features, said to be similar to a kewpie doll, motivate its caregiver to want to take care of it.Developmental psychology is the scientific study of systematic psychological changes, emotional changes, and perception changes that occur in human beings over the course of their life span. Originally concerned with infants and children, the field has expanded to include adolescence, adult development, aging, and the entire life span. This field examines change across a broad range of topics including motor skills and other psycho-physiological processes; cognitive development involving areas such as problem solving, moral understanding, and conceptual understanding; language acquisition; social, personality, and emotional development; and self-concept and identity formation.show more
