The Child is a chronologically organized introduction to child and adolescent development and psychology. Designed for courses in psychology, human development, family studies, and education, this comprehensive text presents the research, theories and applications of child development in a well-written and accessible manner. Child development is presented around a framework that stresses the child’s active involvement with and adaptation to changing environments. This framework allows for alternative viewpoints and developmental influences such as environmental factors, the family, cultural background, gender related issues, and individual variability. Throughout the text, over 120 extended examples and vignettes, many drawn from biographical, autobiographical, and fiction sources, integrate and clarify abstract concepts into more concrete, experiential contexts. This text is also available in a briefer version that covers only the first twelve years.
