Prominent educational psychologists such as Cyril Burt and Susan Isaacs, Herbert Russell Hamley and Philip E Vernon all spent time teaching at the Institute of Education. In 1948 a Research and Training Centre was opened to carry out research on the health and psychology of young children. In 1973, Jack Tizard, the first Professor of Child Development, set up the Thomas Coram Research Unit. Child psychology is still taught and researched today under the Faculty of Children and Health. This guide will provide a very brief introduction to child psychology, and an outline of relevant material available in the archives.
