This updated version of a classic text incorporates the most significant research findings since the original publication of the Fifth edition. A textbook by respected authors E. Mavis Hetherington, Ross D. Parke and Virginia Otis-Locke, Child Psychology, 5e Update utilizes a topical organization to reflect research-based findings about the central processes that account for developmental shifts within different topical domains of development. A variety of theoretical viewpoints are examined to provide students with a well balanced view of a child’s developmental process. The most current studies and research available provide students with an understanding of the principal topics of child psychology as well as an up-to-date review of recent trends in socially relevant problem areas.
