Overview

Books on child development frequently present theory and research without reference to practice, while practice-oriented texts often deal with development superficially. This much-needed resource fills a crucial gap, focusing on how practitioners can apply the latest developmental knowledge to assessment and intervention with children and families. The book begins with a theoretical framework for understanding the transactions between individual development and the child's wider environments, examining the crucial roles of attachment and parenting and the ecology of risk and protective factors. Chapters then detail normal behavior and salient developmental tasks for infancy, toddlerhood, the preschool period, and middle childhood. Numerous case vignettes and observational examples bring the research to life and highlight special considerations for working with children with difficulties.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Renee Mehlinger, MEd, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a book about development from infancy to middle childhood. It is arranged into two basic sections: the contexts of development and the course of child development. There is a reference section and an index.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a foundation for practitioners who work with children by describing child development and how it can be applied to practice with children. The author meets the objectives through the presentation of theories of child development, assessment techniques, case examples, and interview strategies.
Audience: Written for practitioners who work with children, this book is a practical and theoretical guide that would benefit students and professionals in education, social work, and the mental health field. The integration of theoretical and real life applications make it a useful tool for teaching child development to pediatric and child psychiatry residents.
Features: A clear, concise, and well developed table of contents, a current reference section, and thorough index provide a well organized and thoughtful method for learning, integrating, and understanding the material. The organization also aids in the use of the book as a quick reference guide. The use of real children as case examples to illustrate developmental concepts enhances the overall quality that reinforces the learning process and consolidates theoretical information.
Assessment: This guide presents a useful, cogent, practical approach to understanding the complexities of development from infancy through childhood. The integration of theoretical, practical, and experiential knowledge provides a framework through which the interplay of family, environment, and the resiliency of the individual child can be understood.

Divided by developmental stage (infant, toddler, preschool, middle childhood/school-age), this book describes normal physical and social development as well as how this theoretical and factual information can be applied in observation, assessment, and intervention. Preliminary chapters introduce the transactional model of development and describe attachment and relationships with parents and risk and protective factors as contexts that influence the course of development.
