  • The depth of coverage bypasses that of other life span texts though expanded coverage of research and through clearly linking theory to real world applications.
  • The integration of culture and gender discussions throughout the text helps to introduce students to the most recent findings involving cross-cultural and cross-gender differences.
  • Extensive counseling applications sections appear in every chapter and link counseling practices directly to developmental theories. These sections, which cover topics such as incorporating touch therapy with low birth-weight infants and promoting social competence of peer rejected children, show how the latest information on developmental science can impact and inform counseling techniques and treatment plans.
  • NEW! Expanded coverage of developmental psychopathology. Special boxes called “Focus on Developmental Psychopathology” accompany specific chapters and use new research to help readers understand how deviant developmental pathways emerge. Here, issues of etiology, symptoms, and prevention supplement chapter information about normal development at various stages in life. Topics covered in this feature include pervasive developmental disorders, mood disorders, conduct disorders, and anxiety disorders.

    NEW! Revised Case Studies and Discussion questions. Updated case studies and discussion questions present realistic scenarios related to chapter topics and allow students to practice resolving issues that arise for different populations in a variety of situations and help students think critically about the clinical implications of developmental facts and theories.

  • NEW!  Expanded emphasis on neuro-scientific findings related to development.  This up-to-date material incorporatesadvances in research on brain development and physiological processes that affect development.
