Edition after edition, Kathleen Stassen Berger's The Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence re-emerges as the ideal textbook for the chronologically-organized development course--a perennial bestseller that always provides an authoritative portrait of the field, carefully crafted learning tools, and a narrative style and emphasis on cultural contexts that make the material relevant to its broad student audience.
This book discusses in detail the person through their life span from birth through to their death.
This book is an authoritative, established text that engages students in the study of lifespan development from a chronological viewpoint.
This brief, original, 15-chapter textbook was created from page 1 to address the challenges teachers and students face when covering the entire life span in a semester (or even a quarter!). The hallmark Berger qualities are all here--the relatable presentation of research, the inclusive approach to world cultures, the study help that builds critical thinking and observational skills, the outstanding media and supplements--and all held together with Berger's skill in bringing students and the science together.
Every year, scientists discover and explain new concepts and present new research. The best of these are integrated into the text, including hundreds of new references on many topics--among them the genetics of delinquency, infant nutrition, bipolar and autistic spectrum disorders, high-stakes testing, drug use and drug addiction, the importance of attachment and brain development throughout childhood and into the last years of our lives. Cognizant of the interdisciplinary nature of human development, I reflect research in biology, sociology, education, anthropology, political science, and more--as well as in my home discipline, psychology.
