Place Attachment, Place Identity and the Development of the Child's Self-Identity: Searching the Literature to Develop an Hypothesis
Spencer, Christopher
International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, v14 n4 p305-309 Nov 2005
This is part of a campaign to encourage educational researchers, geographers in particular, to spread their literature searches beyond their immediate subject area. The question of place attachment and identity is reviewed through the psychologistal literature. The hypothesis is offered and supported, that place, in a geographical sense is also considered in several ways by the environmental psychologists. The case is argued that if geography teaching starts from children's own geographies, then geography teaching is important in the enhancement of personal well-being.
