Laura E. Berk Development Through the Lifespan, 4e What reviewers are saying... ""This is the most engaging textbook I have reviewed or used... truly remarkable in its depth, research and professional, personable, and engaging writing style... This book sets a new standard of excellence....I especially liked the excellent applications-implications included... far superior to nearly all other texts I am familiar with." " -Dale Lund, University of Utah ""One of the strengths of this book is a sense that we are learning from someone who is both a great scholar and a very wise and experienced person. Berk has credibility on both a professional and personal level . . . [The text] also offers a sense that my students are getting exposure to the best research and ideas available in my field." -David Shwalb, Southeastern Louisiana University ""[I appreciate the] great use of concrete, real-life examples of the various concepts throughout the chapter. This is incredibly helpful for students' learning and retention of the material."" -Tracie Blumentritt, University of Wisconsin La Crosse "I especially like the way Dr. Berk addresses policy in this text... the Social Issues boxes are very useful in engaging students in topics of real-life importance that go beyond the individual." " -Ashley Maynard, University of Hawaii ""This is a high-quality text with wonderful pedagogical features."" -Laurie Gruntmeir, Redlands Community College ""One of the greatest strengths of any Berk book on human development is the quality of the research the author selects for inclusion. The timeliness and relevancy of the selected research goes a long way in enhancing the caliber of the information. The author has created a good blend of historic, classic, contemporary, and practical research, which is appropriate for the topics covered." " -Lanthan Camblin, University of Cincinnati ""Chapter 8 is outstanding . . . The discussion of the factors that influence social and emotional adaptation illustrates the complexity of development, but in a highly readable and understandable fashion." " -Byron Egeland, University of Minnesota ""Chapter 19 is extraordinary. Other textbooks pay lip service to the topic (of death, dying and bereavement) and have the tendency to gloss over the material. Berk has written a phenomenal chapter... it is thorough, sensitive, and well written." "-Cheryl Anagnopoulos, Black Hills State University

Self Esteem Across the Lifespan Book Excerpt:

As long as clinicians write “increase self-esteem” on treatment plans without knowing precisely what that means, there is a need for information on the construct of self-esteem and how its many components can have an effect on outcomes. This text defines self-esteem, describes its history and evolution, discusses its controversies, and presents information on intervention strategies that can make a difference when it receives clinical attention. Principles and concepts are applied to various clinical concerns faced by clients in each of the five developmental life stages: childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, midlife, and late life. Book chapters discuss a variety of specific issues– such as child trauma and abuse, ADHD, body image and eating disorders, at-risk adolescents, African American youth, sexuality in young adulthood, alcohol and other drugs issues, lesbians and gay men at midlife, career development, intergenerational conflict in Asian Americans, and loss in late life – and offer detailed strategies for the development and enhancement of self-esteem. Also included is an example of an 8-week self-esteem enhancement program.

Developmental Transitions across the Lifespan Book Excerpt:

Choice Recommended Read Leo B. Hendry is one of the foremost developmental psychologists of his generation. His diverse range of interests have included studies on young people’s involvement in competitive sports, investigations into teacher and pupil relations in school, adolescents’ leisure pursuits and their family relations, parenting styles, youth workers and mentoring, youth unemployment, adolescent health behaviours, and transition to early adulthood.

Underpinned by empirical research, this collection of journal articles and book chapters is linked by a contemporary commentary which not only contextualises each piece within today’s research climate, but builds to provides an unorthodox, comprehensive but above all compelling perspective on human development from childhood to old age. Leo B. Hendry’s research output has been significant and influential. This is an important book that will provide students and researchers in developmental psychology not only with an opportunity to view his contribution holistically, but in connecting his range of research interests, provides a new contribution to our understanding of lifespan development in its own right.

Development of Self Determination Through the Life Course Book Excerpt:

This volume examines the developmental aspects of the general psychological construct of self-determination. The term refers to self- (vs. other-) caused action—to people acting volitionally—as based on their own will. Research conducted in the fields of psychology and education shows the importance of self-determination to adolescent development and positive adult outcomes. The first part of this volume presents an overview of theories and historical antecedents of the construct. It looks at the role of self-determination in major theories of human agentic behavior and of adolescent development and individuation. The second part of the volume examines the developmental origins and the trajectory of self-determination in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, and looks as aging aspects. The next part presents studies on the evolutionary aspects, individual differences and healthy psychological development. The last part of the book covers the development of causal and agentic capability.
