This text uses a life-stage approach to present development across the life span, drawing on the psychosocial theory of Erik Erikson to provide a conceptual framework. The authors address physical, intellectual, social, and emotional growth in 11 life stages, from the prenatal period through elderhood, focusing on the idea that development results from the interdependence of individuals and their environments at every stage, and placing special emphasis on how optimal development may be fostered throughout life. They also provide many cases that show you how research and theories can be applied to contemporary issues, the diversity of experiences that are possible at a certain period of life, and how people cope with challenges they face at various points in life.

Disorders Of Childhood 3rd Edition

To provide you with a meaningful framework for learning and understanding, this text is written with the whole child in mind and presents disorders in the context of typical development and developmental pathways. Multiple themes recur throughout the text: the continuity between typical and atypical development; risk and resilience; complex models of psychopathology; children in relationships over time; children in larger social contexts (ethnic backgrounds, neighborhoods, cultures); and the holistic nature of development (thinking about the whole child and his or her abilities and strengths as well as his or her disorder or areas of struggle). This developmental psychopathology approach, which reflects the most up-to-date understanding of child and adolescent psychopathology, will teach you to think about disorders in terms of the individual children who are coping with distress and dysfunction.
