Four Social Psychological Lenses for Developmental Psychology
Zittoun, Tania; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly
European Journal of Psychology of Education, v24 n3 p387-403 Sep 2009
How can the advances of social and developmental psychology be integrated? This conceptual paper proposes to examine four basic theoretical models of social situations through which learning and development have been observed in the post-piagetian tradition: the psychosocial triangle, the frame, models of transfer and transitions, and models integrating the notion of cultural instrument. We show different dynamics highlighted by series of studies using these models. We finally discuss the notions of development and of the person emerging through such social developmental approaches.
