Child Development Research in Federal Republic of Germany: Search for International Cooperation.
Rauh, Hellgard; And Others
This symposium report on current child development research in Germany includes abstracts from papers presented at the biennial meeting of SRCD, April 1975, and a short overview of the history and present status of developmental research and training in Germany. According to this overview, developmental theory and empirical research, which had been the focus of attention in the early 20th century, experienced a complete decline during and after World War II, with a slow recovery during the 60's and 70's. Anglo-Saxon research and social demands have shaped this recovery, and today, German developmentalists appear to be especially sensitive to theoretical, methodological and meta theoretical issues. They also prefer to study more complex units of behavior within a broader scope than their American counterparts, considering this kind of research closer to socially and educationally relevant real-life situations.
