Child Guidance in Britain, 1918–1955: The Dangerous Age of Childhood

John Stewart

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    Stewart presents a history of child guidance literature in Britain from its origins in the years after the First World War until the consolidation of the welfare state. Concepts widely used in this guidance also played a part in broader social and cultural perceptions of what constituted a child’s healthy emotional and psychological development. This is the first study of child guidance in this important period and makes a significant contribution to the historiography.
