The text begins with a chapter that briefly describes the stages, domains, and patterns of child development, as well as traditional and contemporary theories. Subsequent chapters provide insight as to research methods and designs within the discipline and also discuss the various genetic and environmental influences that can affect development. The book then progresses chronologically, guiding readers from conception through adolescence, discussing the physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional changes that occur within each key stage of the lifespan. Throughout, Pan & Zoom sections emphasize key topics within each chapter, Tech & Media asides highlight the influences of technology and media on child and adolescent development, and Mentor Minutes provide readers with wisdom and advice through interviews with diverse professionals working in the field.
Featuring a unique approach and comprehensive coverage, Child and Adolescent Development is an ideal resource for courses that prepare students to enter the helping professions in service of children and adolescents, counseling, social justice, education, psychology, and social work.
