A new edition of this book is available. `This is an admirable, modern textbook on child development, which is compact, beautifully organized and laid out and hence is easy to read and use. It also incorporates all the pedagogic methods which one expects in good textbooks nowadays, such as stating the aims of each chapter in bold at the beginning, together with a useful summary in a text-box and a glossary at the end of each chapter.... I was also very pleased to find that Keenan had included much of the modern thinking about child development which so many other university-level "introductions" seem, so far, to have neglected' - Young Minds `This book is well written, with a flowing narrative. It provides an excellent coverage of methods and theories in developmental psychology' - J Gavin Bremner, Department of Psychology, Lancaster University This outstanding textbook presents a comprehensive introduction to developmental psychology that is engaging, yet detailed and thorough. Covering all the major topics in child development, the book offers a grounding in the principles which govern research and theory in contemporary child development, and surveys the theories and research methods which are essential to developing a firm knowledge of the field. Key features include: · Coverage of the child's 'theory of mind' under the rubric of social development; · an introduction to 'emotion regulation' in the chapter on emotional development; · Coverage of some key theories such as 'dynamic systems theory' and 'evolutionary psychology'. Ideal for students taking a first course in child or lifespan development, the book assumes little or no background in the subject.

Understanding child development is essential to ensuring a full and rounded psychological grounding, but given the complex nature of the topic it can be a real challenge. Child Development: Concepts and Theories takes a step back to focus just on the key concepts of child development that all students must learn. With this book, their first encounters with theories and their applications will mean that they can move on with a firm foundation in child development. Central to this, is understanding how these theories or concepts are applied in the real world and how psychologists engage with them in research. This book gives clear and detailed examples to bring the subject to life. Each chapter features case studies that run throughout the chapter and develop as the students' own understanding does. Written for undergraduates, the book will become essential to any student wanting a key to unlock the world of child development. Jean Mercer is Professor Emerita of Psychology at Stockton University, New Jersey, and writes a blog, “Childmyths”, at http://childmyths.blogspot.com

Four types of HB and SE course outlines are presented and discussed with an eye toward strengthening foundation courses, along with an analysis of fourteen frequently used Human Behavior and Social Environment textbooks based on the Council on Social Work Education’s 2001 guidelines that also offers a framework for integrating content. The application of the transtheoretical model of behavioral change to the welfare to work transition with public housing residents is presented using both quantitative and qualitative data that has been closely analyzed.

Toddler Swimming builds on the concepts in on Ahrendt's Baby Swimming and focuses on swimming with children up to the age of 3. It is directed at interested parents and course instructors alike. Part one looks at the basic principles of child development and also provides us with the latest scientific information regarding parent-child swimming. A specially developed teaching concept is introduced in the more practice-oriented part two and is supplemented with numerous methodical didactic tips and creative ideas. Discovering water as an element of movement, gradually getting accustomed to water and finally feeling comfortable in it is certainly the most appropriate way of learning to swim at a preschool age without being afraid. Parents can accompany their child on this sometimes long and strenuous path, supporting him with familiar hands and being a good example. As a consequence their child develops his skills in the water on his own free will and with a lot of pleasure while also learning to estimate risks and personal limits.
