Organized topically to realistically present the three overarching perspectives that guide today's researchers and practitioners of developmental psychology, David Bjorklund and Carlos Hernández-Blasi's CHILD AND ADOLESCENT DEVELOPMENT: AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH shows how the major perspectives on human development must be integrated--rather than presented as contrasting and sometimes contradictory ways of looking at development--in order to meaningfully understand infants, children, and adolescents as well as how they develop.
