Childhood in Turkey: Educational, Sociological, and Psychological Perspectives, edited by Hilal H. Şen, Helaine Selin (Retired)

This volume asks, what is it like to be a child in a country where 25% of the population is under the age of 14? Handling this question through a multidisciplinary lens, the book provides a rich and diverse analysis of different portrayals of childhood in Turkey. From children’s rights to transformation of childhood, from refugee children to host country children living in armed conflict areas, from cultural factors to gene-environment interaction, from parent-focused to child-focused programs, readers will find in-depth and up-to-date information about children living in Turkey from the perspectives of sociology, education, and psychology sciences
