Description: This authoritative book presents an integrated perspective on child development that synthesizes biological, social, cultural, and socioeconomic influences. The combined features that distinguish the book from other titles can be summarized with an acronym: CARE (Cutting edge research, Applied developmental science, Readability, Essential knowledge). Written in an engaging manner by respected child development experts, it incorporates both classic and cutting-edge research—including extensive coverage of new research in developmental neuroscience, which has transformed the study of developmental psychology. At the same time, the authors emphasize the application of developmental psychology to real world problems, focusing on the ways in which knowledge of child development can inform social policy and practice in the fields of child care, education, mental health, and family life. Reflecting the authors' combined expertise, the broad array of real-life examples resonate with readers from different backgrounds and fields of study, and with different occupational goals in mind. With its distinctive and effective combination of cutting-edge research, applications, readability, and essential knowledge, this text helps readers understand and appreciate what today's scientists are discovering about child development, how they study the process, and how this knowledge can be used to improve the lives of infants, children, and adolescents around the world.
