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.Read more
