Overview

B> This book uses a chronological organization to teach principles of development and encourages readers to reflect on their own personal experience of development. The authors believe that development follows a transactional approach where the process of human development is shaped by the continuous interplay, or transactions, between individuals and their environments. The book stresses the dynamic role of the environment, as well as biology and culture, in the developmental context. The theme of the diversity is interwoven throughout. Critical thinking is also stressed. While the book is research based, the tone is warm and personal with plenty of examples to which readers can relate. The book is organized in seven parts, each consisting of two chapters: Part I covers the field of developmental psychology, including overviews of historical foundations, general theories, and the scientific method. Part II contains two chapters on the genetic and environmental bases for prenatal development, birth, and neonatal development. Parts III-VII each integrate a chapter on physical and cognitive development and a chapter on social and emotional development during specific stages of growth from infancy to late adolescence. For anyone interested in child and adolescent development.
