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

Recent decades have seen a growing emphasis, in a number of professional contexts, on acknowledging and acting on the views of children. This trend was given added weight by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, ratified in 1990. Today, seeking the perspective of the child has become an essential process in all sorts of tasks, from framing new legislation to regulating professions. This book answers the fundamental question of what it is that constitutes a ‘child perspective’, and how this might differ from the perspectives of children themselves. The answers to such questions have important implications for building progressive and developmental adult-child relationships. However, theoretical and empirical treatments of child perspectives and children’s perspectives are very diverse and idiosyncratic, and the standard reference work has yet to be written. Thus, this work is an attempt to fill the gap in the literature by searching for and defining key formulations of potential child perspectives within parts of the so-called ‘new child paradigm’. This has been derived from childhood sociology, contextual-relational developmental psychology, interpretative humanistic psychology and developmental pedagogy. The highly experienced authors develop a comprehensive professional child perspective paradigm that integrates recent theory and empirical child research. With its clear presentation of underlying theories and suggested applications, this book illustrates a child-oriented understanding of specific relevance to both child-care and preschool educational practice.

This is the only text to provide comprehensive coverage of human growth and development, a requirement mandated by the Council of Rehabilitation Education (CORE) for a master's degree in rehabilitation counseling and for Licensed Professional Counselor certification. Written by an eminent leader in the field of disability studies, this book reflects a significant change in perceptions of individuals with disabilities from being defined foremost by their disability to being viewed as normal individuals with a disability. It provides an understanding of traditional human growth and development that will enhance the practice of disability counseling by enabling an understanding of a client's childhood and prior life experiences. The book begins with a focus on developmental theories and tasks, followed by a discussion of cultural and ethical considerations in human development. It considers the major theories of human development as they relate to people with and without disabilities, and career theories with a focus on the concept of choice. The book addresses specific developmental stages including a description of developmental tasks, risks, disability applications, specific disabilities common to a particular stage, and cultural and ethical issues, all supported by case examples. Key Features: Fulfills the required CORE mandated course on human growth and development and the disability experience Addresses disability across the lifespan in relation to developmental stages Authored by highly a respected expert in disability studies
