Book Description

Human Development II offers an overview of a wide range of contemporary issues in education and society, including emotional intelligence; various models of education; family, leadership; experiential learning; personal development; recreational activities; the arts; philosophy; music; and media.

These topics are all currently subject to research and debate, but have been prevalent throughout history, impacting on different fields, including education, communication, and health. It is vital to understand these topics in order to live in a society in which one must interact with other people and regulate one’s emotions.

All the contributors to this volume investigate and discuss how these issues affect society in general, reflecting on the causes of the functioning of the world. All chapters in this book provide a full and clear frame of reference for several problems, issues and disciplines discussed here, offering professional and experienced insights from a range of disciplines including psychology and arts. As such, this book represents a highly useful and contemporary manual for both students and the general public interested in the social sciences.
