Offering comprehensive content and a contemporary approach to teaching the subject, Laura Berk's Child Development remains an authority when it comes to books about children's growth and maturity. It is one of the best pedagogical tools in the market, providing current information and relevant updates from the field. The book focuses on the relationship between environment and biology, while discussing child development in the context of culture, education, social issues and health. The 8th revision continues the tradition of Berk's topical approach, offering excellent coverage of other important aspects of development that extends beyond the home, including schooling and peers, community and society, neighborhoods, and the media. This edition of Child Development was also released as a 20th anniversary edition and offers a complete supplements package to enhance pedagogy. Its best selling success can be attributed to the author's story-telling style, in depth research, and use of practical applications. Child Development (8th Edition) ISBN 9780205615599 offers refreshed discussions of essential topics like child development theories and research strategies, the basic foundations of development (physical and biological foundations), and cognitive and language development. Personality and social development are also in focus, especially in areas like emotional development, moral development, self and social understanding, and development of gender roles and sex differences. Important developmental contexts are discussed, including family, media, peers, and schooling. Author Laure Berk is a recognized scholar and professor teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in child and human development. She is a widely published author and researcher. Her works have appeared in a wide range of journals, including the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology and Child Development. Berk does active work for various children's causes in her home community, as well as the nonprofit organization Jumpstart, where she serves as a member of the national board of directors.
