Child and Adolescent Development : Behavioral Systems Approach - 04 edition

Child and Adolescent Development : Behavioral Systems Approach (ISBN10: 0761926984; ISBN13: 9780761926986)
ISBN13: 978-0761926986
ISBN10: 0761926984

Summary: There are two fundamental questions in developmental psychology-what develops and how does it develop? The "what" is largely a question of developmental structure and describes development, while the "how" is primarily a question of function or process and explains development. Developmental psychology has become increasingly focused on the process aspect, but many texts do not provide readers with a clear perspective of how development actually o
ccurs.

Child and Adolescent Development: A Behavioral Systems Approach integrates the views of dynamical systems concepts with a behavioral view of development. This combination of perspectives is unique and from it something new emerges-"a behavioral systems approach" to development. It is an approach that incorporates both personal and environmental influences and the constant reciprocal interactions between nature and nurture.

The book emphasizes learning as the major process for change in development and the integration of environmental influences with genetic and historical factors. Authors Gary Novak and Martha Pelaez provide a coherent understanding of the learning process in childhood and adolescence and present successful interventions to minimize typical problematic behavior during this period.

Features of this text:
  • Unique. Connects development with learning concepts, a topic neglected in most developmental psychology books.
  • Concise. Provides a coherent framework for exploring selected features of development in greater depth and detail rather than an encyclopedic volume of facts, figures, and theories.
  • Accessible. Written in an engaging style that clearly conveys even sophisticated theoretical material and difficult, advanced topics.
  • Pedagogical. Includes highlight boxes, chapter-opening outlines, chapter summaries, key words, and an end-of-book glossary that enhance student understanding.
  • Child and Adolescent Development is an exceptional, process oriented textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking child development and developmental psychology courses in Psychology, Human Development & Family Studies, Education, and related fields
