Infants, Children, and Adolescents (with Interactive Companion Website): United States EditionLaura E. Berk (author)
- Not available
Berk has updated this best-selling, chronologically organized child development text by paying close attention to the relationship between theory, research, and applications.
With a heightened emphasis on the interplay between biology and environment, and stronger focus on education (both at home and at school) and social policy as critical pieces of the dynamic system in which the child develops, Berk pays meticulous attention to the most recent scholarship in the field.
Creating stronger connections between domains of development, Berk has expanded her coverage of culture, enhanced attention to emotional development, and updated cognitive, biological, and social development.
In her signature storytelling style, Berk creates a "cast of characters" for each unit based on real children and families, artfully using their "stories" to illustrate the sequence and processes of child development and applications of theory and research.
This book is also available in an abridged paperbound version, Infants and Children: Prenatal Through Middle Childhood, comprised of Chapters 1-13.
