Book Description :

Child Development: Theories and Critical Perspectives provides an engaging and perceptive overview of both well-established and recent theories in child and adolescent psychology. This unique summary of traditional scientific perspectives alongside critical post-modern thinking will provide readers with a sense of the historical development of different schools of thought. The authors also place theories of child development in philosophical and cultural contexts, explore links between them, and consider the implications of theory for practice in the light of the latest thinking and developments in implementation and translational science. Early chapters cover mainstream theories such as those of Piaget, Skinner, Freud, Maccoby and Vygotsky, whilst later chapters present interesting lesser-known theorists such as Sergei Rubinstein, and more recent influential theorists such as Esther Thelen. The book also addresses lifespan perspectives and systems theory, and describes the latest thinking in areas ranging from evolutionary theory and epigenetics, to feminism, the voice of the child and Indigenous theories. The new edition of Child Development has been extensively revised to include considerable recent advances in the field. As with the previous edition, the book has been written with the student in mind, and includes a number of useful pedagogical features including further reading, discussion questions, activities, and websites of interest. Child Development: Theories and Critical Perspectives will be essential reading for students on advanced courses in developmental psychology, education, social work and social policy, and the lucid style will also make it accessible to readers with little or no background in psychology.

Book Description :

Every child is born into a community, a society with a culture, in which he or she will live, grow and develop. Cultures lead to differences in children’s development, but equally important, culture is an essential component of every child’s psychological development. Child Development takes a chronological approach, from prenatal development to adolescence, in which social, cognitive, emotional and physical aspects of development are interwoven. Martin Packer integrates cross-cultural examples from different parts of the world to illustrate how culture plays a constitutive role in children’s development. This book includes an in-depth discussion of human evolution, the history of language and the human lifespan, as well as the theoretical perspectives of scientific research on children’s development. This textbook is essential reading for undergraduate students taking an introductory course in child development or developmental psychology.

Book Description :

Over the past 25 years, the intersection of developmental psychology and public policy has become an increasingly active and important domain for researchers, policymakers, children's rights advocates, and practitioners. At the forefront of the child development research and social policy movement is Edward Zigler, whose “knowledge for action” approach has revolutionized the way public policy is enacted to better serve vulnerable youth populations. Child Development and Social Policy: Knowledge for Action expands on Dr. Zigler's work in integrating the fields of child development and social policy, while using scientific knowledge for action as the model. Contributors discuss these key questions: What are the most powerful research insights of the last 30 years that promote effective action for children and families? What are the most powerful constraints or limits of our knowledge base to promote effective action for children and families? What are the primary components of short-term research agenda to make the most powerful difference for children and families? This edited volume focuses on both the influence of social policy on children's development and the unique perspective, insight, and skills that developmentalists bring to this policy and its formation. Programs to ensure good beginnings for all children are discussed, while the needs of those who are most vulnerable are also addressed. The volume celebrates the life and scholarship of Edward F. Zigler, founder of the Edward Zigler Center in Child Development and Social Policy and administrator of the Head Start program in Washington, DC. Dr. Zigler is both a pioneer and a leader in conducting rigorous, high-quality developmental and policy-relevant psychological research and has dedicated his work to improving the lives of American children and their families through informed social policy. His scholarly work spans the fields of cognitive and social–emotional competence of young children, mental retardation, psychopathology, intervention programs for economically disadvantaged children, and the effects of out-of-home care on the children of working parents.

Book Description :

Understanding child development is essential to ensuring a full and rounded psychological grounding, but given the complex nature of the topic it can be a real challenge. Child Development: Concepts and Theories takes a step back to focus just on the key concepts of child development that all students must learn. With this book, their first encounters with theories and their applications will mean that they can move on with a firm foundation in child development. Central to this, is understanding how these theories or concepts are applied in the real world and how psychologists engage with them in research. This book gives clear and detailed examples to bring the subject to life. Each chapter features case studies that run throughout the chapter and develop as the students' own understanding does. Written for undergraduates, the book will become essential to any student wanting a key to unlock the world of child development.

Five of the sections cover the developmental domains, and within each domain there are four chapters based on chronological age, from birth to 18 years. Each section consists of activities to foster engagement by allowing the reader tolearn through critical reflection and analysis. The final sixth section provides an overview of how to plan for schooling starting with early childhood education and ending with senior schooling, and draws together the learning techniques necessary to support children within different age ranges.Complete with examples that are research-focused, real-world and cross-cultural, students are provided with practical strategies to help them program and plan for learning and development.
