Help students understand how culture impacts development - and why it matters.

 

Through current research and examples from around the world, Arnett/Maynard’s Child Development provides students with a more accurate and practical understanding of how development works in the real world.

From the Back Cover:

Abnormal Psychology is considered the most authoritative text in its field; it set the standard for the course. Butcher, Mineka, and Hooley are among the most preeminent and respected researchers in abnormal psychology today. Now their distinguished text is available in a briefer version for those who prefer to cover topics in less detail. 

 

This briefer version includes the same popular features as the more comprehensive book, as well as all-new end of chapter Practice Tests.

  • Special feature boxes — “Developments in Research,” “Developments in Thinking,” “Developments in Practice,” and “The World Around Us” — focus on applications of research to everyday life, as well as current events and the latest research methodologies, technologies, and findings.
  • Extensive case studies of individuals throughout the book bring material to life  while giving students a context in which to understand contemporary abnormal psychology.
New DSM-IV-TR boxes appear ineach chapter. The boxes summarize the essential criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders for the disorders discussed. This helpful study tool reflects current diagnostic practice and helps students understand disorders in a clinical context.
