From the Inside Flap:

What are the basic dimensions of temperament? How does temperament influence children's relationships to their physical and social worlds--and their behavior and adjustment across the lifespan? From preeminent researcher Mary Rothbart, this work comprehensively examines the role of temperament in the development of personality and psychopathology.

In a direct and accessible style, Rothbart elucidates both the underlying biological processes and social transactions that shape each child's unique identity. She presents innovative approaches to conceptualizing and measuring temperament's basic dimensions, and explains how these dimensions form the core of the developing personality. Incorporating important advances in neuroscience, the book explores the impact of temperament on the ways in which children: *Interact with parents and other caregivers.*Form an enduring sense of self.*Cope with challenges and adversity.*Learn to regulate their emotions.*Develop empathy and conscience.*Establish healthy or maladaptive patterns of behavior. Findings on stability and change in children's traits are thoroughly reviewed. Rothbart considers the crucial question of how to respect individual differences while at the same time fostering and supporting prosocial behavior. She offers new insights on "difficult" children and describes intervention programs that address temperamental factors in childhood problems. A major contribution from a leader in the field, this book belongs on the shelves of developmental psychologists and personality/social psychologists, as well as child clinical psychologists and other mental health practitioners. In addition, graduate students and advanced undergraduates will find it a compelling, highly readable text.

 

About the Author:

Mary K. Rothbart, PhD, is Distinguished Professor Emerita of Psychology at the University of Oregon. Her research has focused on temperament, attention, emotion, and social development, and she has developed several widely used measures of temperament, including parent and self-report questionnaires, home observations, and laboratory observations. Dr. Rothbart’s work with Michael Posner has explored the cognitive skills, attention networks, and attention genes that support effortful control in children. She has coauthored or coedited numerous books and has received numerous awards. Most recently, she received the Eleanor Maccoby Book Award from Division 7 (Developmental Psychology) of the American Psychological Association, for Becoming Who We Are. Dr. Rothbart has also received the Gold Medal Award for Life Achievement in the Science of Psychology from the American Psychological Foundation, the G. Stanley Hall Award for Distinguished Contribution to Developmental Psychology from the American Psychological Association, and the Award for Distinguished Scientific Contributions to Child Development from the Society for Research in Child Development. One of the offshoots of her early temperament research was the founding of Birth to Three, a parent support and education program that has reached thousands of families in the United States and abroad, and which recently celebrated its 30th birthday. Dr. Rothbart is most pleased to have received Birth to Three’s Champion of Children award.
