Developmental Forum Newsletter

The Developmental Psychology Section produces up to two newletters a year for their members titled Developmental Forum.

We always welcome suggestions and submissions for the newsletter at any time of the year. For example, you could write a review about a pertinent conference or recently-published book, write a ‘process article’ on some aspect of doing developmental psychology, place adverts for local developmental psychology events/seminars/meetings, or anything else you'd like us to consider! 

Please contact either Lorna Hamilton or Amy Pearson for more information or to submit your article.
