Bukatko/Daehler's CHILD DEVELOPMENT: A THEMATIC APPROACH provides a comprehensive, topically organized, up-to-date picture of development from conception to adolescence. Most important, it draws students' attention to the themes that replay themselves throughout the course of development, fundamental issues that resurface continually and that provide coherence to sometimes seemingly disparate research. The themes can serve as frameworks to help students further understand and remember the multitude of facts about child development. Bukatko/Daehler's sixth edition text draws on five themes, Nature and Nurture, Sociocultural Influence, Continuity/Discontinuity, Interaction among Domains, and Risk/Resilience. By drawing on these themes, the authors hope to stimulate readers to think about the process of development, or why it proceeds as it does. Through new For Your Review and Reflection sections, the authors also hope students will engage with the text and become more adept critical thinkers, who are more likely to appreciate the ramifications of theory and research for applied issues such as parenting practices, education, and social policy for children, which are ultimately concerns for us all.

This new chronological edition is based on the well-established topically organized text by Bukatko and Daehler, Child Development: A Thematic Approach, 5/e. Addressing physical, social, and emotional development in a linear fashion, this text starts with pre-natal development and progresses through birth and the newborn baby, infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence. Developed to accommodate the more applied focus of courses in nursing, parenthood, education, family studies, and human ecology, this text benefits from the authors' focus on research through an emphasis on developmental themes. Five themes on development are found in every chapter and are listed in the chapter opener, called out in the margin where the theme is addressed, and summarized in a Summary of Developmental Themes section at the end of the chapter. The five themes explore nature and nurture; sociocultural contexts; continuous vs. discontinuous development; the domains of development; and risk or resilience in development. Extensive "Contexts of Development" chapters for each development stage broaden the scope of the issues discussed by examining the child/adolescent within the context of family, peers, and community. Research Applied to Parenting/Education boxes provide practical advice based on research findings and cover such topics as reducing SIDS, monitoring TV viewing, reciprocal teaching, and reading to children. Atypical Development sections focus on topics related to non-normative development, including eating disorders, autism, attention deficit disorder, detecting hearing loss, depression, conduct disorders, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Summary Tables are two-page graphic timelines that summarize the various milestones of development and show the sequence of the child's development within a given domain (infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence). Chapter-Opening Vignettes draw students into real-life scenarios by applying and exploring concepts of development. Marginal features, See for Yourself and What Do You Think?, invite students to critically evaluate and explore further related material on the Online Study Center. Additional pedagogy includes section summaries within each chapter and comprehensive Chapter Recaps that feature a Summary of Developmental Themes, a Chapter Review, and a list of Key Terms and Concepts.

In a style that is clear, concise and nuanced, Routledge examines the theological significance of the various texts within their wider canonical context, noting unity and coherence while showing awareness of diversity. Readers looking for a substantial overview of the central issues and themes in Old Testament theology will find that in the main body of the text, and those with more specific interests will find more detailed discussion and references to further reading in the numerous and expansive footnotes.

The result of extensive scholarship and consultation with leading scholars, this classic text introduces students to twenty-four theorists and compares and contrasts their theories on how we develop as individuals. Emphasizing the theories that build upon the developmental tradition established by Rousseau, this text also covers theories in the environmental/learning tradition. New to this Edition: Research and citations have been updated throughout. Expansion of the chapter on ethology, reflecting the author's growing conviction that the study of animal behavior casts considerable light on human development. Several chapters give greater attention to children's play. In addition, the chapter on Vygotsky adds a description of the popular, play-oriented Tools of the Mind education program, and the chapter on ethology concludes with a discussion of the question, "Is the young child's urge to play innate?" Knowing that students want to discuss moral and philosophical issues as fully as possible, the 6th edition includes Kohlberg's speculations about the possibility of a seventh stage of spiritual development.

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.
