About the Authors
  • Incorporating the latest Australian, British and American research, this introduction to contemporary theory and issues in child and adolescent development is intended for students in several disciplines. A thematic linking of materials in the text allows both students and teachers to follow development either chronologically or thematically. A life cycle approach to topics as they arise is a very useful addition.

    •  A truly international book with recent research findings from North America, Britain and Australasia, but with a focus on the Australian student
    •  Life cycle approach is very well done both textually and visually
    • CD-ROM has a range of innovative extension material; also includes a child observation manual
    • Pricepoint will be lower than competition
