9780073382685: Child Psychology: A Contemporary View Point

This classic text once again provides a compelling topically-organized introduction to child development. Parke et al incorporate multiple perspectives in exploring the processes of child development. With recurring pedagogical features to ensure students see the interrelatedness of chapters and concepts and the chronological development of children, the authors have also taken care to further their student-friendly presentation by shortening the text in this edition. This has been accomplished without cutting the book’s highly-regarded child psychopathology chapter.

He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, and is well know for his early work on the effects of punishment, aggression, and child abuse and for his work on the father's role in infancy and early childhood. Parke's current work focuses on the links between family and peer social systems, ethnic variations in families, and the effects of the new reproductive technologies on families.
