The latest edition of the highly acclaimed book from renowned author Kathleen Stassen Berger, The Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence (ISBN 9781429216470) remains an authoritative reference in the developmental studies of growth. It allows students to think like real developmentalists, viewing child development interpretively and scientifically. This edition has likewise been updated with media tools specially designed for instructors. Sixteen chapters make up The Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence. The first provides an outline of the study of development, including a compelling case study. It also talks about the application of scientific method in the study of development. The rest of the book covers the basic theories of development (from classic to emergent), heredity and environment, genetic code, sex, fertility, and multiple births, genotypes, and phenotypes. This comprehensive reference also talks about prenatal development and birth, the biosocial, cognitive, and psychological development during the first two years of life, early childhood, school years, and adolescence. It provides a clear discussion of early bodily changes, sensorimotor intelligence development, and emotional development. Chapters devoted to early childhood focus on brain development, injuries and abuse, language, children's theories, and children with special needs. The section on ‘school years' talks about peer groups, teaching, and learning, and families. The final parts discuss puberty, adolescent thinking, identity and sexuality, relationships, sadness, and anger. The author also infuses her personal perspectives and offers case studies that help illustrate the concepts presented. A renowned author in this niche, Kathleen Stassen Berger has written all the preceding editions of The Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence, along with other publications such as The Developing Person Through the Lifespan and Invitation to the Life Span.
