Description : Organized topically to realistically present the three overarching perspectives that guide today's researchers and practitioners of developmental psychology, David Bjorklund and Carlos Hernández Blasi's CHILD AND ADOLESCENT DEVELOPMENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH provides not only a truly ground-breaking integrated approach but also the most practical and up-to-date introduction to this vital subject. The authors emphasize applied issues and consistently show how the major perspectives on human development must be integrated -rather than presented as contrasting and sometimes contradictory ways of looking at development -in order to meaningfully understand infants, children, and adolescents as well as how they develop. High-interest boxes including the Biopsychology of Childhood, Evolution in Action, and Socioculturally Speaking appear in rotation throughout the chapters to add both depth and dimension to the presentation of the text's comprehensive core content and featured perspectives. A rich set of pedagogical resources in the text itself and throughout its dynamic suite of online and print supplements helps to ensure that this text engages, enlightens, and challenges students in unique ways. Take a look and see why pre-publication reviewers and class-testers have been raving about the exciting teaching and learning possibilities this new text offers.

From reviews of the First Edition: "[W]ell written with a clear focus on the undergraduate audience, it covers a wide range of relevant topics that undergraduates are interested in, it makes human development theories accessible to undergraduates, and it integrates multiple cultural lenses ... I absolutely love it compared to the other options on the market in this field ." -- Michelle Tichy, University of Northern Iowa "The writing style is excellent! ...The Introductory ‘What would you do’ scenarios are great for stimulating critical thinking at the beginning of the class discussions. . . . ‘Connecting with Children’ sections provide helpful guidelines for teachers, families and other professionals. . . . [The text makes an] intentional effort to cover diversity and culture." -- Winnie Mucherah, Ball State University "One of the reasons I changed to this text was the very clear and interesting writing style. I found myself absorbed in the information even though I have been using these types of texts for decades. The level is appropriate for the students. In addition, if a topic is introduced, it is presented in some depth. . . . There is a great deal of material on practical considerations related to parenting and teaching as well as to cross-cultural issues and diversity. Topics are covered thoroughly and related to one another. I also like the layout of the material in terms of how it appears on the page, ease of reading the print, etc." -- Sandra Twardosz, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Description : Unlike other child and adolescent development textbooks, Child and Adolescent Development for Educators by Judith Meece is written specifically for teacher education majors and for professionals in the field of education. It focuses entirely on the development of school-age children and youth, and provides deep coverage of those topics of most immediate concern to teachers such as cognitive development, social and emotional development, language development, literacy, individual differences in development, and children with special needs. Few texts provide this depth of coverage. The author is an expert in teacher education, having taught child and adolescent development to education majors for over fourteen years.Child and Adolescent Development for Educators also helps students to see how developmental research can be applied in educational settings. Each chapter discusses the implication of research for teaching, and the text includes pedagogical features focusing on teaching applications. It is the only development textbook that emphasizes applications to educational settings in this way. For the revision new material has been added throughout the text, including a completely new chapter on peers and families and the expansion of the content on personal, social and moral development into two chapters. By the end of the text, students will have a clear understanding of the important role of schools and teachers in children’s lives.
Description : Although conflict in human affairs has fascinated theorists and researchers for centuries, this book, was the first to focus on the role of conflict in psychological and social development: the hows, whens, wheres, and whys of conflict in everyday life. Conflict is not always a negative, destructive event; research shows that it has many positive effects in the development of individuals and their interpersonal relationships. A major theme of Conflict in Child and Adolescent Development is how the management of conflict can enhance the psychological growth of individuals and strengthen relationships among people. Leading scholars present findings based on empirical research from psychology, anthropology, sociology, sociolinguistics, and family relations to provide an intriguing picture of what is known about conflict and to preview future research.
