In exploring the areas of socialization and the cognitive and emotional growth of children, this dictionary considers controversial issues such as IQ and the role of genetic inheritance and early experience in the growth of intelligence and in social and emotional development into adulthood. The roles of influential theorists are assessed and issues relating specifically to formal education are examined.

The Dictionary of Developmental and Educational Psychology is one of four dictionaries based on the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Psychology, published by The MIT Press in 1983 and cited by American Libraries as an "outstanding reference source" that "speaks to the specialist and nonspecialist alike." They update existing articles while offering many new entries.
