Parent and Child Series Series Editor: David Cohen, Film maker and Psychologist, UK

Series

This series aims to bridge the gap in parents’ understanding of the issues that may affect their children from infancy to early adolescence. These scientifically grounded books will communicate the findings of psychologists and other developmental experts to parents in a user-friendly way. The books will be brief but comprehensive, accessible and intelligent. Topics will cover both normal development and problem areas, such as eating disorders, learning disabilities, aggressive children and conduct disorders, drugs and alcohol use, ADHD, childhood stress, sexuality and the Risk Debate. The books will be invaluable for all parents and parents-to-be.

New Titles in the Series: What Every Man Should Know About Being a Dad (2009) David Cohen (p.37 ) Parenting with Reason (2009) Esther Yoder Strahan, Wallace E. Dixon & Jerry Burton Banks (p.37)

relatively short, readable books on interesting topics to do with youth and society, the series makes people more aware of the relevance of the subject of adolescence to a wide range of social concerns. The books do not put forward any one theoretical viewpoint. The authors outline the most prominent theories in the field and include a balanced and critical assessment of each of these. Whilst some of the books may have a clinical or applied slant, the majority concentrate on normal development. The readership rests primarily in two major areas: the undergraduate market, particularly in the fields of psychology, sociology and education; and the professional training market, with particular emphasis on social work, clinical and educational psychology, counselling, youth work, nursing and teacher training.

Hendry, University of Glamorgan, Wales, and Emeritus Professor, University of Aberdeen, UK; Marion Kloep, University of Glamorgan, UK & Inge Seiffge-Krenke, University of Mainz, Germany This series is published in conjunction with the European Association for Research on Adolescence and is committed to publishing and promoting the highest quality of writing in the field of adolescent development. It aims to respond to the recent shifts in the social and ecological environment of adolescents and in the new theoretical perspectives within the social science by providing a range of books, each of which deals indepth with an aspect of current interest within the field of adolescent development. Each book focuses on a specific aspect of adolescence and provides either a clear picture of the research endeavours which are currently serving to extend the boundaries of our knowledge and understanding of the field, or an insightful theoretical perspective of adolescent development. The editors encourage publications which represent original contributions to the field.

Each volume in the series makes a conceptual contribution to the topic by reviewing and synthesizing the existing research literature, by advancing theory in the area, or by some combination of these missions. Authors in this series provide an overview of their own highly successful research program, but they also include an assessment of current knowledge and identification of possible future trends in research. Each book is a self-contained unit supplying the advanced reader with a coherent review of important research as well as its context, theoretical grounding and implications.

Fundamentals of Psychology Michael Eysenck Royal Holloway, University of London, UK “This must be surely one of the most comprehensive psychology textbooks in existence. It covers the diverse and multi-leveled discipline that psychology is and it does so in a highly sophisticated yet also readable and interesting way. I appreciated the historical perspective, and the focus on long-standing issues that perplexed and fascinated psychological scientists over the years, and found new framings with the introduction of new methods and techniques of inquiry.” – Arie W. Kruglanski, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland “Eysenck has written a thorough yet engaging introduction to the science of psychology. The book speaks with a unified voice, pulling in historical examples where they are important, yet still covering cutting-edge research of recent years. He does not shy away from controversial issues in the field, but covers them evenhandedly. The last three chapters on research methods are excellent; I strongly recommend this book.” – Henry Roediger III, Washington University in St. Louis “In my opinion Eysenck is the finest textbook author in the world at this level. The sheer breadth of material with which he is comfortable is most impressive, and he has a unique ability to communicate complex and contemporary material so as to make it accessible and interesting.” – Matt Jarvis,Visiting Tutor in Education, Southampton and Keele Universities Aimed at those new to the subject, Fundamentals of Psychology is a clear and reader-friendly full-color textbook that will help students explore and understand the essentials of psychology. This text offers a balanced and accurate representation of the discipline through a highly accessible synoptic approach, which

Third Edition Graham Richards Former Professor at Staffordshire University, UK The third edition of Putting Psychology in its Place builds on the previous two editions, introducing the history of psychology and placing the discipline within a historical context.

This new third edition contains two completely new chapters: Emotion: The Problem or the Whole Point? and Psychology, Money and Institutions. An expanded Epilogue has also been added which incorporates a discussion of the conceptual issues raised in the book and which corresponds with the new BPS requirements for undergraduate courses. Other chapters, including those on psychology and the brain, social psychology and the psychology of madness, as well those on gender, religion and race have also been substantially revised. Putting Psychology in its Place is imaginatively written and accessible to all. It is an invaluable introductory text for undergraduate students of the history of psychology and will also appeal to postgraduates, academics and anyone interested in psychology or the history of science.

Data generated from longitudinal studies allow researchers to better understand how context and experience interact with stable characteristics of the developing person over time. This book summarizes a landmark longitudinal study of 200 children, from the ages of 3 to 23. The Munich Longitudinal Study on the Ontogenesis of Individual Competencies (LOGIC) examined the development of individual differences over time and whether it is possible to predict later competencies from earlier ones. Offering a snapshot of theory and data on personality, social, motor, moral, and cognitive development, the contributors help us understand which individual differences can and cannot be altered through schooling and other experiences and how differences seen in the earliest stages are later reflected in adulthood. The results provide valuable insight into the strengths and limitations of early prediction of individual differences. This is the second volume to review the wealth of data generated by the study. The first volume (Weinert and Schneider, 1999) traced development from ages 3 to 12. This volume continues the story, integrating these early findings with the results from adolescence and young adulthood. Each of the chapters provides an overview of current research and addresses how the data help us understand the presence and developmental effects of individual differences. Among the findings are results on: • • • •

The relative stability of cognitive competencies The long term effects of shyness and aggression The relation between moral understanding and action, and The role of education in the development or maintenance of performance differences. Intended for researchers and advanced students in developmental, educational, personality, social, and cognitive psychology, this book will also appeal to educators, especially the chapters that focus on literacy development, educational context, scientific reasoning and mathematical reasoning.

Research in Human Development The official journal of the Society for the Study of Human Development

EDITOR Erin Phelps, Tufts University, USA William M. Kurtines, Florida International University, USA Research in Human Development (RHD) seeks to promote a shift away from research focused on development at particular stages (early childhood, adolescence, middle age, older adulthood) and from separate fields of inquiry to a more inclusive, integrative, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of human development across the entire life span. The integration of the person and his or her context across life is the focus of the scholarship promoted by this journal; as such, multilevel, multivariate, and integrative longitudinal study of personcontext relations is emphasized in these publications. Specifically, an interdisciplinary focus that integratively incorporates biological, psychological, sociological, anthropological, economic, and historical perspectives is stressed in the pages of RHD. To encompass such breadth, the publications incorporate a variety of research methods - from quantitative to qualitative. Moreover, the journal seeks to promote scholarship on the social, cultural, national, and global contexts of human development across diverse ethnic and racial groups employing multiple methods. Finally, RHD seeks to promote scholarship that informs and changes public policies and social programs that promote positive and healthy human development for all people. In short, by providing a forum for research that is life-span oriented, interdisciplinary, contextual, and methodologically diverse, the journal will significantly advance the field of human development.

Theories of Development Childhood Re-imagined Images and Narratives of Development in Analytical Psychology Shiho Main University of Essex, UK “Shiho Main has given us the most important Jungian work on childhood in recent years. Unlike other writers she manages to bridge the ‘developmental’ and the symbolic archetypal and bring the concept of the child up-to-date socially and politically. Seldom is Jungian writing so comprehensive and informing This is essential reading for psychotherapists, psychologists, trainees and everyone concerned with what ‘childhood’ means in our time.” - Christopher Hauke, IAAP Jungian analyst and senior lecturer at Goldsmiths College, University of London, Author of Jung and the Postmodern and Human Being Human. What can Jungian psychology contribute to understanding children and childhood? Childhood Re-imagined considers Carl Jung’s psychological approach to childhood and argues that his symbolic view deserves a place between the more traditional scientific and social-constructionist views of development. This book discusses how Jung’s view of development in terms of individuation is relevant to child development, particularly the notion of regression and Jung’s distinction between the child archetype and the actual child. It shows how Jung’s understanding of the historically controversial notion of recapitulation differs from that of other psychologists of his time and aligns him with contemporary, post-modern critiques of development. The book goes on to investigate Fordham’s notion of individuation in childhood, and the significance of this, together with Jung’s approach, to Jungian developmental psychology and to wider interdisciplinary issues such as children’s rights. Main also examines the plausibility and usefulness of both Jung’s and Fordham’s approaches as forms of qualitative psychology. Through its detailed scholarly examination of Jungian texts and concepts Childhood Re-Imagined clarifies the notion of development used within analytical psychology and stimulates discussion of further connections between analytical psychology and other contemporary discourses. It will be of particular interest to those involved in analytical psychology, Jungian studies and childhood studies. Contents Part 1. Jung on Development. Psychological Development. Regression.

Developmental Neuroscience Developmental Social Cognitive Neuroscience Philip David Zelazo, University of Minnesota, USA; Michael Chandler, University of British Columbia, Canada; Eveline Crone, University of Leiden, The Netherlands (Eds.) Jean Piaget Symposia Series This volume in the JPS Series is intended to help crystallize the emergence of a new field, “Developmental Social Cognitive Neuroscience”, aimed at elucidating the neural correlates of the development of socioemotional experience and behavior. No one any longer doubts that infants are born with a biologically based head start in accomplishing their important life tasks – genetic resources, if you will, that are exploited differently in different contexts. Nevertheless, it is also true that socially relevant neural functions develop slowly during childhood, and that this development is owed to complex interactions among genes, social and cultural environments, and children’s own behavior. A key challenge lies in finding appropriate ways of describing these complex interactions and the way in which they unfold in real developmental time. This is the challenge that motivates research in

developmental social cognitive neuroscience. The chapters in this book highlight the latest and best research in this emerging field, and they cover a range of topics, including the typical and atypical development of imitation, impulsivity, novelty seeking, risk taking, self and social awareness, emotion regulation, moral reasoning, and executive function. Also addressed are the potential limitations of a neuroscientific approach to the development of social cognition. Intended for researchers and advanced students in neuroscience and developmental, cognitive, and social psychology, this book is appropriate for graduate seminars and upper-level undergraduate courses on social cognitive neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, social development, and cognitive development.

The Learning Brain

Social Neuroscience features original empirical articles that examine how the brain mediates social cognition, interpersonal exchanges, affective/cognitive group interactions, and related topics that deal with social/personality psychology. The goal of the journal is to provide a place to publish empirical articles that intend to further our understanding of the role of the central nervous system in the development and maintenance of social behaviors.

“This volume is a tour de force. Goswami effortlessly interweaves contemporary research and theory on cognitive development with cutting edge work in both developmental neuroscience and cognitive psychology. The result is a lucid, accessible and always stimulating treatment of the field of cognitive development, which will be of great use to students and researchers alike. A superb piece of scholarship, this volume is also an excellent choice for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses in developmental psychology.” - Jeffrey J.

“The study of cognitive development has recently been transformed by new interchange with cognitive science, neuroscience, computer modeling, and studies of nonhuman animals. Conveying this situation to students is challenging. Usha Goswami has provided a valuable and thorough account of cognitive development as informed by both emerging and classic perspectives.” - Nora S. Newcombe, Professor of Psychology, Temple University “The book is both scholarly and exciting in the way it inter-weaves the most cutting edge research in cognitive neuroscience and connectionism with the traditional theories of Piaget and Vygotsky. It presents a clear and contemporary introduction to the field that will interest and inform both student and expert alike.” - Mark H. Johnson, Director of the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, University of London Cognitive Development: The Learning Brain is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the bestselling Cognition in Children. This fullcolor textbook has been re-written from the perspective of brain science and shows how new discoveries in cognitive neuroscience force us to reconsider traditional theories of cognitive development. Goswami considers the established base of cognitive developmental psychology and demonstrates how new data from brain science require a new theoretical framework based on learning. This book presents a new paradigm for teaching cognitive development, going beyond Piaget to learning and the brain. Conceptualizing cognitive development around three core domains of human knowledge – naïve physics, naïve biology and naïve psychology – the book considers the learning mechanisms available to the infant brain. Each chapter explores how these mechanisms affect different aspects of cognitive development. Starting with the development of these foundational domains in infancy, Goswami goes on to consider social cognition, language acquisition, causal learning and explanationbased reasoning, and theory of mind. Later chapters explore memory, reasoning, metacognition, executive functions, reading and numbers. The final chapter analyzes the contribution of more traditional theoretical

how researchers have demonstrated this understanding in four-yearolds. The book considers what leads to this understanding, including the role of pretend play, understanding of attention and eye direction, and other precursors to representational understanding of mind. The general relevance of theory of mind is demonstrated through coverage of the development of other mental state concepts, and the relationship between understanding mental representation and other representational media. The author also carefully summarizes current research on the relationship between theory of mind and concurrent developments in executive functioning, and the understanding of language. The book closes by considering autism. A major achievement of theory of mind research is the light it has helped throw on this puzzling developmental disorder. Providing a comprehensive overview of twenty-five years of research into theory of mind, the book will be of great interest to both students and researchers in psychology, philosophy and the cognitive sciences.

“Great read! This is an excellent introduction for students at all levels and for researchers wanting to brush up on recent developments. It is up to date, with an eye on theory and social relevance, and is amenable without shying away from difficult theoretical points.” - Josef Perner, Department of Psychology and Centre for Neurocognitive Research, University of Salzburg “For more than twenty years, “theory of mind” has been a fast-growing area of research in developmental psychology. Martin Doherty provides an up-to-the-minute summary of this now vast literature, including clear analysis of the various theoretical debates. This splendid book will prove invaluable to established researchers as well as newcomer students.” - Janet Wilde Astington, Institute of Child Study, University of Toronto Most of us are continually aware that others have thoughts and feelings – but are children? When? This book is a concise and readable review of the extensive research into children’s understanding of what other people think and feel, a central topic in developmental psychology known as “Theory of Mind”. The understanding of belief is central to this text, which explains in simple terms what representational theory of mind is all about, and shows

Examples span a rich and wide domain reflecting the author’s work in applying rule space to a wide array of assessments. ... The book will absolutely make a significant contribution to the field.” Gwyneth M. Boodoo, Ph.D., President, GMB Enterprises “This book reflects [Dr. K. Tatsuoka’s] accomplishments and contributions to educational assessment. It is remarkable in its extensiveness.” - Leona Aiken, Arizona State University “Dr. K. Tatsuoka’s Rule Space Methodology is innovative and illuminating in its ability to assess and delineate the underlying pattern of cognitive skills and knowledge for individuals from a set of test scores.” - Lisa Harlow, University of Rhode Island This book introduces a new methodology for the analysis of test results. Free from ambiguous interpretations, the results truly demonstrate an individual’s progress. The methodology is ideal for highlighting patterns derived from test scores used in evaluating progress. Dr. Tatsuoka introduces readers to the Rule Space Method (RSM), a technique that transforms unobservable knowledge and skill variables into observable and measurable attributes. RSM converts item response patterns into attribute mastery probabilities. RSM is the only up-to-date methodology that can handle large scale assessment for tests such as the SAT and PSAT. PSAT used the results from this methodology to create cognitively diagnostic scoring reports. In this capacity, RSM helps teachers understand what scores mean by helping them ascertain an individual’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses. For example, two students may have the exact same score, but for different reasons. One student might excel at processing grammatically complex texts but miss the main idea of the prose, while another excels at understanding the global message. Such knowledge helps teachers customize a student’s education to his or her cognitive abilities. RSM is also used for medical diagnoses, genetics research, and to help classify music into various states of emotions for treating mental problems. The book opens with an overview of cognitive assessment research

and nonparametric and parametric person–fit statistics. The Q-matrix theory is then introduced, followed by the Rule Space Method. Various properties of attribute mastery probabilities are then introduced along with the reliability theory of attributes and its connection to classical and item response theory. The book concludes with a discussion of how the construct validity of a test can be clarified with the Rule Space Method. Intended for researchers and graduate students in quantitative, educational, and cognitive psychology, this book also appeals to those in computer science, neuroscience, medicine, and mathematics. The book is appropriate for advanced courses on cognometrics, latent class structures, and advanced psychometrics as well as statistical pattern recognition and classification courses taught in statistics and/or math departments.

Human memory is not only the repository of our past but the essence of who we are. As such, it is of enduring fascination. We marvel at its resilience in some situations and its fragility in others. The origin of this extraordinary cognitive capacity in infancy and childhood is the focus of vigorous research and debate as we seek to understand the record of our earliest beginnings. The first edition of this volume, The Development of Memory in Childhood, documented the state-of-the-science of memory development a decade ago. This new edition provides a thorough update and expansion of the previous text and offers reviews of new research on significant themes and ideas that have emerged since then. Topics include basic memory processes in infants and toddlers, the cognitive neuroscience of memory development, the cognitive and social factors that underlie our memory for implicit and explicit events, autobiographical memory and infantile amnesia, working memory, the role of strategies and knowledge in driving memory development, and the impact of stress and emotion on these basic processes. The book also includes applications of basic memory processes to a variety of real world settings from the courtroom to the classroom. Including contributions from many of the best researchers in the field, this classic yet contemporary volume will appeal to senior undergraduate and graduate students of developmental and cognitive psychology as well as to developmental psychologists who want a compendium of current reviews on key topics in memory development.

Language & Reading Development Textbook - Coming Soon!

Talking the Talk Language, Psychology and Science Trevor A. Harley University of Dundee, UK Language makes us human, but how do we learn and use it? This book is an introduction to the psychology of language. Written for the reader with no background in the area or knowledge of psychology, it explains how we actually “do” language: how we speak, listen, and read. Talking the Talk provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to psycholinguistics, the study of the psychological processes involved in language. It shows how it’s possible to study language experimentally, and how psychologists use these studies to build models of language processing. The book covers the major current controversies in the area as well as all the main topics, including how children acquire language, how language is related to the brain, and what can go wrong – and what can be done when something does go wrong.

Textbook

Understanding Developmental Language Disorders From Theory to Practice Courtenay Frazier Norbury, speech-language pathologist, UK; J. Bruce Tomblin, University of Iowa, USA; Dorothy V.M. Bishop, University of Oxford, UK (Eds.) “This is a book that should be obligatory reading for everyone working in the field of developmental language disorders. There are contributions by many of the top experts in the field of DLD – from those involved in diagnostic and intervention research to those working in the field of genetics and imaging Together the individual contributors and the three editors have produced a clearly written, tightly structured and comprehensive volume that should become a true classic.” Patricia Howlin, Professor of Clinical Child Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London “This volume provides researchers and clinicians concerned with language and literacy disorders in children with a unique resource. This rare assembly of rigorous scientific studies applied to both the underlying processes and the approaches to remediation of these problems renders the volume an invaluable addition to the libraries of investigators and clinicians alike.” - Rhea Paul, Yale Child Study Center Developmental language disorders (DLD) occur when a child fails to develop his or her native language often for no apparent reason. Delayed development of speech and/or language is one of the most common reasons for parents of preschool children to seek the advice of their family doctor. Although some children rapidly improve, others have more persistent language difficulties. These long-term deficits can adversely affect academic progress, social relationships and mental well-being. Although DLDs are common, we are still a long way from understanding what causes them and how best to intervene. Understanding Developmental Language Disorders summarizes the recent research developments in genetics and neuroimaging studies, assessment techniques and treatment studies to provide an overview of all aspects of DLD. The book investigates the possible genetic and biological causes

of the disorder, how best to assess children’s language skills to identify when and where communication breakdown occurs, what the long-term outcomes are for children who grow up with DLD, overlaps between DLD and other childhood disorders such as dyslexia and autism and how best to treat children with the disorder. Each chapter is written by a leading authority in the field in a format accessible to researchers, clinicians and families alike. This book, with its focus on both theory and practice, will be invaluable to students and researchers of speech-language pathology, psychology, psychiatry, linguistics and education. It will also be of interest to practicing speech-language pathologists, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, educational psychologists, and teachers and parents of children with developmental language disorders.

Contemporary Perspectives on Reading and Spelling Clare Wood, University of Coventry, UK Vincent Connelly, Oxford Brookes University, UK (Eds.) EARLI New Perspectives Series With contributions from leading international researchers, Contemporary Perspectives on Reading and Spelling offers a critique of current thinking on the research literature into reading, reading comprehension and writing. Each paper in this volume provides an account of empirical research that challenges aspects of accepted models and widely accepted theories about reading and spelling. This book develops the argument for a need to incorporate less widely cited research into popular accounts of written language development and disability, challenging the idea that the

development of a universal theory of written language development is attainable. Opening up the existing debates, and incorporating psychological theory and the politics surrounding the teaching and learning of reading and spelling, this edited collection offers some challenging points for reflection about how the discipline of psychology as a whole approaches the study of written language skills.

Expository Discourse in Children, Adolescents, and Adults Development and Disorders Marilyn A. Nippold, University of Oregon, USA Cheryl M. Scott, Rush University Medical Center, USA (Eds.) New Directions in Communication Disorders Research Series School success in the 21st Century requires proficiency with expository discourse – the use and understanding of informative language in spoken and written modalities. This occurs, for example, when high school students read their textbooks and listen to their teacher’s lectures, and later are asked to demonstrate their knowledge of this complex topic through oral reports and essay examinations. Although many students are proficient with the expository genre, others struggle to meet these expectations. This book is designed to provide information on the use and understanding of expository discourse in school-age children, adolescents, and young adults. Recently, researchers from around the world have been investigating the development of this genre in typical students and in those with language disorders. Although many books have addressed the development of conversational and narrative discourse, by comparison, books devoted to the topic of expository discourse are sparse. This crossdisciplinary volume fills that gap in the literature and makes a unique contribution to the study of language development and disorders. It will be of interest to a range of professionals, including speech-language pathologists, teachers, linguists, and psychologists who are concerned with language development and disorders.

Routes to Language Studies in Honor of Melissa Bowerman Virginia C. Mueller Gathercole (Ed.) University of Wales at Bangor, UK Festschrifts Series This volume contains contributions from leaders in the field of child language in honor of one of the lights, Melissa Bowerman, who has had a profound, widespread, and enduring influence on research conducted for nearly forty years. In Part 1, on Learning Words, Dedre Gentner and Lera Boroditsky lay out their latest theorizing – and new data from Navajo – on the status of their complementary hypotheses, the Natural Partitions hypothesis and the Relational Relativity hypothesis. Esther Dromi provides a rich review of theories of word meaning and re-examines her own data from her daughter Keren’s acquisition of Hebrew to uncover the best components of theories that have evolved from early categorical views of children’s word meanings to more current dynamic systems and emergentist perspectives. In Part 2, on Crosslinguistic Patterning and Acquisition of Lexical Semantics, Lourdes de León explores children’s early sensitivity to language-specific verb meaning, through an examination of children’s acquisition of verbs for ‘fall’ and ‘eat’ in the Mayan language Tzotzil, and argues for early influence of both the input and cognition. Bhuvana Narasimhan and Penelope Brown further examine a “Semantic Specificity Hypothesis” by comparing children’s acquisition of Hindi and the Mayan language Tzeltal and find that the data are not consistent with the hypothesis. In Part 3, Crosslinguistic Patterning and Events, Paths, and Causes, William Croft addresses the nature of the causal-aspectual structure of events and proposes that a proper treatment requires two major components – aspectual structure and force-dynamic structure – as well as incorporation of multiple subevents. Soonja Choi explores speakers’ expression of PATH and CAUSE in Verb-framed and Satellite-framed languages and argues from English, Spanish, Korean, and Japanese data that PATH must be broken into two sub-types, “endpoint” paths and “trajectory” paths, as languages differ in their treatment of these two subtypes. Dan Slobin further examines whether PATH expression in motion verbs relates to paths of vision and argues, from English, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish data, that just as the structure of the language directs “thinking for speaking” about physical paths, it by extension also influences conceptualizations regarding paths of vision. In Part 4, Influences on Development, Eve Clark argues that adults “shape the way children speak” by offering terms and elaborations in the input and by providing feedback when children make errors. Ping Li examines the acquisition of meaning from a connectionist-emergentist perspective and argues that the child’s discovery of meaning emerges as a natural outgrowth of the processing of statistical probabilities – the frequency of co-occurrence of form-to-form, form-to-meaning, and

22

meaning-to-meaning mappings. Mabel Rice focuses on children with Specific Language Impairment and provides a rich analysis of the research while trying to solve a conundrum: How is that children with SLI can demonstrate deficits in learning some aspects of language, and yet show robust abilities in other areas of linguistic development? Virginia Mueller Gathercole traces the protracted development of a wide range of “scalar predicates” in English and argues that cognitive abilities and linguistic input work together to “invite” the child to move from rudimentary lexical-specific usage to complex usage.

Crosslinguistic Approaches to the Psychology of Language Jiansheng Guo, California State University, East Bay, USA; Elena Lieven, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany; Nancy Budwig, Clark University, USA; Susan Ervin-Tripp, University of California at Berkeley, USA; Kei Nakamura, Yale University, USA; Seyda Özçaliskan, University of Chicago, USA (Eds.) Festschrifts Series This volume covers state-of-the-art research in the field of crosslinguistic approaches to the psychology of language. The forty chapters cover a wide range of topics that represent the many research interests of a pioneer, Dan Isaac Slobin, who has been a major intellectual and creative force in the field of child language development, linguistics, and psycholinguistics for the past four decades. Slobin has insisted on a rigorous, crosslinguistic approach in his attempt to identify universal developmental patterns in language learning, to explore the effects of particular types of languages on psycholinguistic processes, to determine the extent to which universals of language and language behavior are determined by modality (vocal/auditory vs. manual/visual) and, finally, to investigate the relation between linguistic and cognitive processes. In this volume, researchers take up the challenge of the differences between languages to forward research in four major areas with which Slobin has been concerned throughout his career: language learning in crosslinguistic perspective (spoken and sign languages); the integration of language specific factors in narrative skill; theoretical issues in typology, language development and language change; and the relationship between language and cognition. All chapters are written by leading researchers currently working in these fields, who are Slobin’s colleagues, collaborators or former students in linguistics, psychology, anthropology, and cognitive science. Each section starts with an introductory chapter that connects the themes of the chapters and reviews Slobin’s contribution in the context of past research trends and future directions. The whole volume focuses squarely on the central argument: universals of human language and of its development are embodied and revealed in its diverse manifestations and utilization. Crosslinguistic Approaches to the Study of Language is a key resource for those interested in the range of differences between languages and how this impacts on learning, cognition and language change, and a tribute to Dan Slobin’s momentous contribution to the field.

Infant Pathways to Language Language & Reading Development

Methods, Models, and Research Directions John Colombo, University of Kansas, USA; Peggy McCardle, Lisa Freund, National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, Maryland, USA (Eds.) The enormous recent progress in cognitive neuroscience, and the importance of genetic factors and gene-environment interactions in shaping behavioral functions in early childhood, have both underscored the primacy of early experience and development on brain development and function. The contributors to this volume discuss different paradigms and approaches in infant language and cognition, pushing the frontiers of research by innovatively combining methods, introducing new measures, and demonstrating the use of technologies and measurement approaches that can inform the study of word learning and categorization, gaze, attention, gesture, and physiological functions. The volume offers a blend of theories and empirical evidence to support, refute, or modify them. Most chapters examine the link between theory and methodology, and their appearance together in a single volume serves to inform and engage multiple disciplines, to engage everyone to think across disciplines and paradigms, to embrace the integration of creativity and science as the field continues to study in greater depth and with innovative measures and approaches, the infant pathways to language This volume is derived from presentations and discussions from a workshop, sponsored jointly by the Merrill Advanced Studies Center, University of Kansas, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Bethesda, Maryland.

Handbook of Child Language Disorders Richard G. Schwartz (Ed.) City University of New York, USA “The Handbook of Child Language Disorders provides an exceptionally broad and comprehensive review of the state of research in children’s communication problems. It provides an accessible review of the major research approaches currently used to understand language development and its disorders in a wide range of syndromes and conditions. Authors from backgrounds including linguistics, cognitive and neuropsychology, genetics, and neuroscience contribute unique perspectives. This volume provides students, scholars, and practitioners with a readable compendium of information that will serve as an indispensable resource in understanding and managing children’s language disorders.” - Rhea Paul, Yale Child Study Center “This creatively conceived volume not only provides a cutting-edge exploration of our current understanding of language disorders in children, it also points to likely future developments through its description of emerging methods and theories. The impressive group of contributors cogently represent the wide range of disciplines with interests in this population. Their writing is provocative, yet accessible to readers at many levels of expertise and from many disciplines. In short, this is a book that I will buy for my own library, then thrust upon colleagues, students, and anyone else who studies or treats children with language disorders. It seems destined to become a classic.” - Rebecca McCauley, The University of Vermont The Handbook of Child Language Disorders provides an in-depth, comprehensive, and state-of-the-art review of current research concerning the nature, assessment, and remediation of language disorders in children. The book includes chapters focusing on specific groups of childhood disorders (SLI, autism, genetic syndromes, dyslexia, hearing impairment); the linguistic, perceptual, genetic, neurobiological, and cognitive bases of these disorders; and the context of language disorders (bilingual, across dialects, and across languages). To examine the nature of deficits, their assessment and remediation across populations, chapters address the main components of language (morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics) and related areas (processing, memory, attention, executive function such as reading and writing). Finally, even though there is extensive information regarding research and clinical methods in each chapter, there are individual chapters that focus directly on research methods. This Handbook is a comprehensive reference source for clinicians and researchers and can be used as a textbook for undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students in speech-language pathology, developmental psychology, special education, disabilities studies, neuropsychology and in other fields interested in children’s language disorders.

The Child as Social Person

Coming Soon!

The Development of Emotional Intelligence A Case Study Nadja Reissland, University of Aberdeen, UK Concepts in Developmental Psychology Series How do children learn about the expression and meaning of emotions – both happy and sad? This book will answer questions on the foundation of emotional intelligence and examine how children become emotionally literate as they are socialised into their family environment from birth to two years of age These early stages are vitally important in teaching children to understand themselves and others, as well as how to relate to people, and how to adapt to and cope with their immediate surroundings.

Sara Meadows University of Bristol, UK Questions about how children grow up in their social worlds are of enormous significance for parents, teachers, and society at large, as well as for children themselves. Clearly children are shaped by the social world that surrounds them but they also shape the social worlds that they, and those significant to them, encounter. But exactly how does this happen, and what can we do to ensure that it produces happy outcomes? This book provides a critical review of the psychological literature on the development of personality, social cognition, social skills, social relations and social outcomes from birth to early adulthood. It evaluates evidence on both normal and abnormal social development, prosocial and antisocial behaviour, and across cultures. As well as outlining the theory, the book addresses applied issues such as delinquency, school failure, and social exclusion.

In order to examine the development of emotional intelligence the authors present a case study of the first use and development of “emotion words” from both the baby’s and the parent’s point of view. The data, based on daily tape-recorded “conversations” between a baby daughter and her father, demonstrates how over a two-year period a child learns to express and understand emotions in social interaction. This capacity to reason with emotion will be examined through four areas: perceiving emotion, integrating emotion, understanding emotion and managing emotion.

Using a coherent theoretical structure, The Child as Social Person examines material from across the biological and social sciences to present an integrated account of what we do and do not know about the development of the child as a social actor.

The Development of Emotional Intelligence adds a new perspective to the theoretical debate on emotions and how they develop. It will be of great interest to psychologists and any professionals dealing with families. It will also be helpful reading for parents.

The Child as Social Person provides an integrated overview of the exciting field of developmental social psychology, and as such will be essential reading for advanced undergraduate students in psychology, education and social work, as well as postgraduates and researchers in these disciplines.

The Development and Structure of Conscience Willem Koops, Daniel Brugman, Utrecht University, The Netherlands; Tamara J. Ferguson, Utah State University, USA; Andries F. Sanders, Free University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and RWTH, Aachen, Germany (Eds.) This book focuses on the structure and development of conscience, a subject that has been dominant in developmental psychology since the 18th Century. International experts in the field contribute to this broad overview of the relevant research on the development of moral emotions and on the Kohlbergian-originated cognitive aspects of moral development. The first section of the book focuses on the cultural conditions that create the context for the development of conscience, such as moral philosophy, religion, and media violence. Building on the theory and research on emotion, other chapters cover issues including the development of shame, self-regulation and moral conduct, social cognition and models of guilt. The book also covers moral reasoning, moral identity, moral atmosphere and moral behaviour, and discusses subjects such as lying, how to measure moral development, and issues surrounding gender and aggression. The Development and Structure of Conscience will be ideal reading for researchers and students of developmental and educational psychology.

Development and Prevention of Behaviour Problems From Genes to Social Policy Richard E. Tremblay, University of Quebec at Montreal, Canada; Marcel A.G. van Aken, Willem Koops, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands (Eds.) “This book is a must-read for the new generation of interdisciplinary researchers. World-class scientists join in debating the causes of a broad class of problem behaviours, from the role of environments in gene expression to new preventions and policy implications. This research has profoundly changed our views on the nature of aggression.” - Rainer K. Silbereisen, Chair of Developmental Psychology and Director of the Center for Applied Developmental Science, University of Jena Development and Prevention of Behaviour Problems: From Genes to Social Policy brings together world leading researchers from diverse fields to explore the potential causes of the development of behaviour problems. The book presents theories that hope to influence public health, education and social policy in the prevention of the costly social troubles that behaviour problems can cause.

Featuring contributions from researchers in professional backgrounds that range from the social and behavioural sciences to economics, the varied chapters contain research that assesses the potential role of geneenvironment interactions, biological factors and gender differences in the development of behaviour problems. It includes a review of studies that attempt to understand why antisocial behaviour is concentrated in families, and concludes with three chapters which link developmental research directly with policy issues. The book provides a framework for students, scientists, educators and care givers to understand where frontier research on behaviour problems is going and how it can be applied in the social, educational and health services. This collection will interest all students of behavioural psychology and the behavioural sciences as well as those with an interest in public policy, sociology, abnormal psychology, psychopathology and personality disorders.

His ground-breaking principles of early learning and teaching are unpicked here using everyday language, and critical links between his fascinating ideas are revealed. Introducing Vygotsky is an invaluable companion for anyone involved with children in the early years. The introduction of Vygotsky’s key concepts is followed by discussion of the implications of these for teaching and learning. Each chapter also includes a useful


glossary of terms.

Vygotsky at Work and Play Lois Holzman East Side Institute for Group and Short Term Psychotherapy, USA “Educationalists and Psychologists and all those interested in learning and development in a humane and caring society need to know about this kind of approach. This is a readable and accessible account of many years of interesting work in this tradition.” - Brahm Norwich, University of Exeter Vygotsky at Work and Play relates the discoveries and insights of Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky to ordinary people and their communities. The author – working with her intellectual partner Fred Newman – has advanced a unique performance-based methodology of development and learning that draws upon a fresh and in some ways unconventional reading of Vygotsky. In this book, Holzman shows this methodology at work in key learning environments: psychotherapy, classrooms, out-of-school youth programs, and the workplace. The book vividly describes Vygotskian-inspired programs involving thousands of people from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, ages and occupations. Interwoven in each chapter are discussions of Vygotsky’s understandings of play, speaking, thinking, the zone of proximal development, the individual and the group. Holzman brings practice and theory together to provide a way forward for those who wish to liberate human development and learning from the confines of the social scientific paradigm, the institutional location of educational and psychological research, and the practices that derive from them. Vygotsky at Work and Play presents a challenge to the underlying distinctions and boundaries of psychology, most significantly to the presumption of a cognitive-emotive divide, the notion of fixed identity, the privileging of the individual over the group, and the instrumental nature of play and performance. The book is essential reading for researchers and professionals in educational and developmental psychology, psychotherapy, cultural historical activity, social science, performance studies and education.

Social and Emotional Development William M. Bukowski, Concordia University, Canada; Brett Laursen, Florida Atlantic University, USA; Kenneth H. Rubin, University of Maryland, USA (Eds.) Critical Concepts in Psychology Series Social and Emotional Development, a new four-volume collection, brings together the most influential and fundamental research in the area, providing readers with a vital overview of the basic theory and the empirical database regarding social and emotional development. The collection editors present a general developmental picture of the state-of the-art in each area of social and emotional development. They have also written integrative commentaries (appearing as an introduction at the start of each volume) to situate the collected research topics in their historical and intellectual context, and to provide a snapshot of current issues in the field. This new Major Work constitutes a ‘mini library’ on the history of, and current debates in, social and emotional development. The collection is an ideal introduction to the area for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, and serves as an important reference for instructors. Indeed, teachers who are planning courses intended for advanced undergraduates and graduate students find these volumes to be an ideal way of providing a comprehensive and in-depth coverage of research on social and emotional development. The chronological organization of three of the four volumes allows instructors to use all three or to choose the book that best fits the needs of their course. The models-and-methods volume can be used in a similarly flexible or focused manner. Three of the volumes represent particular periods of the infancy-toadolescence lifespan. The first is devoted to research on infancy and early childhood, the second includes articles on development during the schoolage years, and the third focuses on adolescence. For each of these age periods the volume editors have selected the research that represents critical changes in the study of social and emotional development and that has most clearly revealed critical findings or advances in knowledge. Within each volume there is a diverse set of journal articles covering development within the family with parents and siblings, outside the family with peers, in social contexts such as nurseries and schools, and the formation of one’s view of the social world. The fourth volume collects material about ‘methods and models’. This includes the major theoretical papers that have shaped or redirected the study of social and emotional development. Fundamental papers on statistical techniques and research designs associated with the study of development or change are also included. The material selected on methods and procedures does not consist of technical papers crammed with formulae and mathematical reasoning; instead, it provides readers with a rich introduction to the purposes and basic methods of studying development. Each volume includes papers related to interpersonal relationships, contextual influences on development, the development of the self, social cognitive development, and atypical adjustment.

Social & Emotional Development

Emotional Memory Across the Adult Lifespan Elizabeth A. Kensinger Boston College, USA Essays in Cognitive Psychology Series Though many factors can influence the likelihood that we remember a past experience, one critical determinant is whether the experience caused us to have an emotional response. Emotional experiences are more likely to be remembered than nonemotional ones, and over the past couple of decades there has been an increased interest in understanding how emotion conveys this memory benefit. This book begins with a broad overview of emotion, memory, and the neural underpinnings of each, providing the reader with an appreciation of the complex interplay between emotion and memory. It then examines how emotion influences young adults’ abilities to store information temporarily, or over the long term. It explains emotion’s influence on the memory processes that young adults use consciously and on the processes that guide young adults’ preferences and actions without their awareness. This book then moves on to describe how each of these influences of emotion are affected by the aging process, and by age-related disease, providing the reader with a lifespan perspective of emotional memory. Within each of the domains covered, the book integrates research from cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and neuropsychological perspectives, examining both the behavioral and thought processes that lead to emotion’s effects on memory and also the underlying brain processes that guide those influences of emotion. This book will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in memory, emotion, and aging, working in the fields of cognitive psychology, cognitive or affective neuroscience, and developmental or lifespan psychology. Contents Part 1. Introduction and Background. 1. Emotion, Memory, and Their Interactions. 2. The Neurobiology of Emotion and Memory. 3. Methods for Investigating Emotion-Memory Interactions. Part 2.

Judith E. Owen Blakemore, Indiana University - Purdue University, USA; Sheri A. Berenbaum, Lynn S. Liben, Pennsylvania State University, USA “This is a terrific text! The book fills a gap in the literature and does so beautifully. ... It was a real pleasure to read. I will require this text for my courses on gender role attitudes and behavior.” - Rebecca S. Bigler, University of Texas at Austin “I believe that the... book will significantly contribute to the field of child development and gender role development. This is a field that has grown much in the past decades and an updated text on this topic will be very useful. ... I would certainly adopt it for my course on gender role development.” - Yvonne Caldera, Texas Tech University This new text offers a unique developmental focus on gender. Gender development is examined from infancy through adolescence, integrating biological, socialization, and cognitive perspectives. The book’s current empirical focus is complemented by a lively and readable style that includes anecdotes about children’s everyday experiences. The book’s accessibility is further enhanced with the use of bold face to highlight key terms when first introduced along with a complete glossary of these terms. All three of the authors are respected researchers in divergent areas of children’s gender role development and each of them teaches a course on the topic. The book’s primary focus is on gender role behaviors – how they develop and the roles biological and experiential factors play in their development. The first section of the text introduces the field and outlines its history. Part 2 focuses on the differences between the sexes, including the biology of sex and the latest research on behavioral sex differences, including motor and cognitive behaviors and personality and social behaviors. Contemporary theoretical perspectives on gender development – biological, social and environmental, and cognitive approaches – are explored in Part 3 along with the research supporting these models. The social agents of gender development, including children themselves, family, peers, the media, and schools are addressed in the final part. Cutting-edge and comprehensive, this the perfect text for those who have been searching for an advanced undergraduate and/or graduate book for courses in gender development, the psychology of sex roles and/or gender and/or women or men, taught in departments of psychology, human development, and educational psychology.

Adolescence Coming Soon!

Divergent Perspectives on Emerging Adulthood Stage or Process? Jeffrey Arnett, Clark University, USA; Marion Kloep, Leo B. Hendry, University of Glamorgan, UK; Jennifer Tanner, Rutgers University, USA Studies in Adolescent Development Series Recent social and economic global changes have extended the period of transition to early adulthood for many young people. Some researchers and writers, and in particular, Jeffrey Arnett, have labelled this period as a new life stage of ‘emerging adulthood’, characterised by the postponement of commitments to stable romantic relationships, career and lifestyle, opportunities for exploration, instability, self-focus and feelings of being ‘in-between’ adolescence and adulthood. This theoretical approach is contested by Hendry and Kloep, who propose the need to discard stages and examine interactive mechanisms and processes of change, if social scientists are to understand development. Divergent Perspectives on Emerging Adulthood: Stage or Process? critically examines young people’s transitions from adolescence to early adulthood, and debates these two different theoretical approaches to understanding this phase of the lifespan. It reflects whether a paradigm shift is required towards a more systemic, inter-disciplinary approach, or if age-defined stages are still relevant for understanding human development. In conclusion, it integrates perspectives to offer an interactive, inter-disciplinary framework from which future research and policy making can develop. The book also demonstrates the values of an ‘adversarial’, though friendly, debate in gaining theoretical insights into a contemporary and controversial topic. As such this book will be of interest not only to those involved in youth research but also psychology, sociology, social work and education.

Moving Out, Moving On Young People’s Pathways In and Through Homelessness Shelley Mallet, Doreen A. Rosenthal, Deb Keys, The University of Melbourne, Australia; Roger Averill, Freelance writer, researcher and editor, Australia Adolescence and Society Series Based on one of the largest ever longitudinal studies of homeless young people, this book examines the factors that impact on homeless young people’s long-term outcomes. Whilst telling the personal stories of young people’s experiences, the book refers to the wider research and policy literature, engaging with key debates about the causes and meanings of homelessness in western societies. The book addresses important issues such as employment and education, engagement with services, social support, connection to family and friends, as well as personal factors including physical and mental health, sexual practices and drug use. Homeless young people are typically portrayed as leading chaotic, risky lives, trapped in a downward spiral of drug use, mental and other health problems, and long-term homelessness. This book challenges this stereotype and demonstrates young people’s capacity to move out of homelessness and make satisfactory lives for themselves. While based on a study of Australian young people, research findings are positioned in the context of a broader international literature on youth homelessness. It is this, and the priority that the book gives to young people’s life stories, that makes Moving Out, Moving On important reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of psychology, sociology, youth and social work as well as researchers, policy makers and service providers in all western cultures.

Mental Health and Emerging Adulthood among Homeless Young People Les B. Whitbeck University of Nebraska, Lincoln, USA

Adolescence

“A ground-breaking longitudinal study. ... Students would find it fascinating. ... It would be adopted in sociology, social work, and psychology courses at the graduate and undergraduate level. It would also be valuable to researchers, agency workers and policy experts. ... An important part of any scholar’s knowledge on adolescence and emerging adulthood.” - Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, Clark University “The results are compelling, and, at times, very surprising. ... The data ... underscores ... the extent of mental health and substance abuse problems among homeless and runaway adolescents [and] the ... long-term consequences. ... It is ... likely to become a text for courses on the homeless. ... It should be of much interest to researchers ... human service workers, mental health providers, law enforcement, juvenile justice personnel, policy makers and legislators.” - Luis A. Vargas, University of New Mexico School of Medicine “The design of the study ... is simply unique. ... I am deeply impressed with the breadth of coverage. ... This title may be used ... at both the (upper) undergraduate and graduate level ... in courses on sociology, social work, and psychology.” - Luc Goossens, Catholic University of Leuven What happens to homeless and runaway adolescents when they become adults? This is the first study that follows homeless youth into young adulthood and reviews the mental health consequences of runaway episodes and street life. The adolescents were interviewed every three months for three years from their mid teens to their early twenties. The study documents the psychological consequences associated with becoming adults when missing the critical developmental tasks of adolescence. The authors report high levels of psychological problems associated with victimization prior to and after running away. These victimization experiences shape the behaviors of these young people affecting their relationships with others and their chances of conventional adjustment. Across time, the more successful their adaptation to street life and the street economy, the more barriers to conventional adult life emerge. The distress among this population including self-mutilation and suicidal behaviors is examined as well as the impact street life has on future relationships, education, and employment. Nutritional and health problems are also explored along with the social and economic impact of this population on society. As such the book provides insight about why the current prevention and treatment programs are failing in an effort to help policy makers modify approaches to adolescent runaways. Intended as a supplementary text for undergraduate and/or graduate courses on homelessness, high risk youth, social deviance, adolescence and/or emerging adulthood taught in departments of psychology, human development, sociology, social work, and public health, this compelling new book will also appeal to anyone who works with homeless adolescents.

This new edition has been completely rewritten and includes chapters that address key topics in diversity and aging: research methods, psychological aging; health beliefs, behaviors, and services; health disparities; informal and formal care for older persons; work and retirement; religious affiliation and spirituality; and death, dying, and bereavement. Taking a broad view of diversity, Mehrotra and Wagner discuss elements of diversity such as gender, race or ethnicity, religious affiliation, social class, rural-urban community location, and sexual orientation. Including these elements allows them to convey some of the rich complexities of our diverse culture – complexities that provide both challenges to meet the needs of diverse population and opportunities to learn how to live in a pluralistic society. Throughout the book, Mehrotra and Wagner present up-to-date knowledge and scholarship in a way that engages readers in active learning. Rather than simply transmitting information, the authors place ongoing emphasis on developing readers’ knowledge and skills, fostering higher order thinking and encouraging exploration of personal values and attitudes. Distinctive features of the book include: • Opening vignettes for each chapter that present a sampling of how the issues to be discussed apply to diverse elders • Active learning experiences that invite readers to interview diverse elders, conduct internet searches, and give an analysis of a case study • Quizzes at the end of the chapters help readers ascertain the extent to which they have learned the material; the key for each quiz includes details about correct and incorrect responses so that additional learning can occur • Aging and Diversity Online boxes interspersed throughout the book provide internet resources that readers may use to find new research and publications. Suggested readings and audiovisual resources given at the end of each chapter serve as a guide to additional information on topics covered in the chapter. This approach of presenting the material will help the readers understand and apply key concepts and principles in ways that will not only improve the lives of older people they serve, but will also enhance their own aging experience.

“I have used this text in teaching an introductory family processes course and plan to continue using it. ... It is interesting and applicable to the lives of undergraduate students. ... The coverage of basic family processes is extremely well done as is the use of stories throughout the text. ... This book would be most appropriate for an introductory (freshman/sophomore) class on family processes ... for sociology, education, human development, psychology, and social work classes.” - Denise Ann Bodman, School of Social and Family Dynamics, Arizona State University “Day’s writing style is clear and easy to read. ... I love ... the two new chapters. ... Including trends in dating, falling in love, living together, breaking up ... is so interesting for ... college students. ... The author does an excellent job of covering most aspects of family life and family interaction through the life course. ... I love the ... journal thoughts and exercises ... [and] the examples. ... I currently use the fourth edition. ... The next edition will be even better!” - Julie James, Department of Applied Health Science, Indiana University “Day’s text is really the only option ... for family process texts ... for undergraduates. ... The family process focus is rare but very exciting in an undergraduate classroom.” - Kathleen Ramos, California State University Fresno

What goes on “behind closed doors” in families is examined in this text. Through an engaging, story telling style, Randy Day introduces readers to the family processes approach – the strategies and behavior patterns families use to achieve goals. The emphasis is on how families work, think, and interact rather than on the psychological, sociological, or economic processes. It examines emotions in families, communication, relationship formation and dissolution, family rituals and secrets, ideological concerns, and power and conflict. The goal is to help readers increase the positive aspects of family live, avoid the undesirable parts, and effectively manage the inevitable challenges. Significantly updated with many new references and examples, the new edition features: • A new chapter, How We Study Families, that introduces the discipline’s methodology • A new chapter (7) with the latest research on partner selection around the world, falling in love, commitment, sexuality, passion, and intimacy • A new design reformatted to tie in the book’s website that contains the Chapter Activity Questions that reinforce writing and critical thinking skills, the Journal Activities that strengthen students' personal connection to the material, and the Web Links that encourage further investigation into the material on-line • An Instructor’s Web Resource with small group and in-class excercises, lecture outlines, topics for debate, suggested films, PowerPoint presentations, and multiple-choice, true/false, matching, and essay questions • More on families from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and the impact of work and technology on the family (Ch. 6), the changing


Written for undergraduate courses on family processes/studies, the family, marriage and family interaction/relations, and family dynamics taught in family studies, human development, psychology, sociology, social work, education, consumer sciences, home economics, health, and nursing departments, this book also appeals to those who want to maximize the positive parts of family life.

Parenting with Reason Evidence-Based Approaches to Parenting Dilemmas Esther Yoder Strahan, Clinical Neuropsychological Services Inc., Ohio, USA; Wallace E. Dixon, East Tennessee State University, USA; Jerry Burton Banks, Medical Practitioner, USA Parent and Child Series Parenting with Reason cuts through the masses of often confusing and contradictory advice found in parenting self-help books to provide a rich common-sense manual on “evidence-based parenting”. Grounded in the best research available, it provides parents with the evidence to back up the “tough parenting decisions” that they face. The authors, who are parents themselves, bring together their expert knowledge in such areas as child intellectual and language development, childhood psychological problems and child temperament development, to look at such pressing questions as: “What should I do when my child acts out? ”, “How can I get my baby to sleep through the night?” and “What can I do to stimulate my child’s brain development?” The authors de-bunk common myths about parenting, such as the notion that a healthy baby needs to be able to breastfeed at will throughout the night, or the idea that children who are adopted need specialised counselling. They also examine such issues as how media violence affects children’s behaviour, how a parent’s emotional disorder affects a child, what the scientific evidence is for and against circumcision of young boys,

and how divorce and adoption affect a child’s development. Written in an accessible, entertaining tone, the book is ideal reading for new or prospective parents. The research is grounded in objective, scientific evidence which paediatricians and family health providers will also be able to utilize and endorse. At the end of each chapter, the authors include a section called the “bottom line” which offers the reader a helpful quick reference for the topic. Contents 1. The History of Child-rearing Advice and Science. 2. The Big Sleep Controversies. 3. Breastfeeding versus Bottle Feeding. 4. The “Mozart Effect” and Einstein’s Babies. 5.

What Every Man Should Know About Being a Dad David Cohen Writer, psychologist and film-maker, UK Parent and Child Series When a man becomes a father, it can be a very daunting time. He is suddenly thrust into a new and emotional world. He can feel unprepared (despite the preceding nine months of buildup), useless (despite all the “uses” the mother of his child could offer him), and apprehensive. However, the new father is about to embark upon the most exciting and rewarding experience of his life. But let’s face it, no one teaches men exactly how to become fathers. So, what does being a dad in the 21st Century mean? Dads today, more than ever, want to play an active role in their children’s lives and development. To do this, fathers need to know how children grow up so that they can learn to cope with, play with, control, and love their kids in an intelligent way. This book provides a guide for men on how to be a good dad and a supportive partner. Dealing directly with the key issues and the many stresses that fathers can face, it looks at the psychological research on child development, parenting, and fathering in particular. It examines such thorny topics as step-fatherhood, the changing relationship between partners, and sex after babies. It also offers valuable advice on problems all dads will face – how to bond, how to provide sensible discipline, learning to play, and managing teenage tantrums and traumas. The author, David Cohen, is a psychologist, and a father and step-father. In a quirky and anecdotal style, and drawing on eclectic material, this book tells men everything they need to know about being a dad.

Child Abuse Textbook

Child Abuse and Neglect Monica L. McCoy, Converse College, USA Stefanie M. Keen, University of South Carolina Upstate, USA

Carr

“In this highly readable and engaging book, McCoy and Keen have provided something quite valuable to students. Spanning chapters from the history of child maltreatment to modern diagnostic pitfalls, Child Abuse and Neglect will enhance any course dealing with this topic, from social work, to child development.” - Stephen J. Ceci, Helen L. Professor of Developmental Psychology, Cornell University

“Finally, a research based text about child maltreatment that is a good read. My students will love it.” - Narina Nuñez, University of Wyoming “The author writes as if she was having a conversation with the reader. ... The legal cases bring to life some of the controversial issues. ... [It] paints a clear picture of the child protection system and what actually transpires when an incident is reported and the roles and functions of the caseworkers.” - Alice Yick Flanagan, Capella University

This book examines the latest research in child abuse and neglect, what it entails, and how to recognize and report it. Federal law mandates the reporting of suspected child maltreatment by many professionals. This book will appeal to those who one day find themselves in the role of a mandated reporter. Engaging learning tools are sprinkled throughout: • Focus on Research boxes provide an in-depth look at research or methodologies • Case Examples encourage debate about the gray areas in the field • Legal Examples and Focus on Law sections explain judicial rulings including guides for locating relevant state statutes • Discussion questions promote dialogue and deepen understanding of the material • Bold faced key terms defined when first introduced also appear in the book’s glossary. The book opens with the background on child maltreatment including its history, an overview of the research, and the risk factors. Details about mandated reporting are also explored. Different forms of maltreatment – physical abuse, neglect, psychological maltreatment, sexual abuse, fetal abuse, and Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome – are then examined. Incidence estimates and consequences for each type of maltreatment are provided. Legal issues including forensic interviewing are then reviewed. The book concludes with an example of what happens to a child after a report is filed along with suggestions for preventing child maltreatment. Intended as a text for courses in Child Abuse and Neglect taught in departments of psychology, human development, education, social work, and medicine, this book will also be an invaluable resource to workers who are mandated reporters of child maltreatment and/or anyone interested in the problem.

A Lifespan Perspective Vicki Anderson, University of Melbourne, Australia; Rani Jacobs, Royal Children’s Hospital, Victoria, Australia; Peter Anderson, University of Melbourne, Australia (Eds.) Studies on Neuropsychology, Neurology and Cognition Series This volume has as its primary aim the examination of issues concerning executive function and frontal lobe development. While many texts have addressed these issues, this is the first to do so within a specifically developmental framework. This area of cognitive function has received increasing attention over the past decade, and it is now established that the frontal lobes, and associated executive functions, are critical for efficient functioning in daily life. It is also clear, and of particular relevance to this text, that these functions develop gradually through childhood, and then deteriorate during old age. These developmental trajectories, and the impact of any interruption to them, are the focus of this volume. Contents Part 1. A Developmental-Theoretical Framework for Executive Function. P.J.

EDITOR Claudia Dalbert Martin Luther University, Germany The International Journal of Psychology (IJP) is the journal of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS) and is published under the auspices of the Union. IJP seeks to support the IUPsyS in fostering the development of international psychological science. It aims to strengthen the dialog within psychology around the world and to facilitate communication among different areas of psychology and among psychologists from different cultural backgrounds. IJP is the outlet for empirical basic and applied studies and for reviews that either (a) incorporate perspectives from different areas or domains within psychology or across different disciplines, (b) test the culture-dependent validity of psychological theories, or (c) integrate literature from different regions in the world. IJP does not publish technical articles, validations of questionnaires and tests, or clinical case studies. Special topical issues or sections are published two or three times a year. All articles include a detailed abstract in English, French and Spanish. IJP Special Section issues In an ongoing initiative from 2007, certain issues of IJP are now designated as Special Section issues, where a number of articles concentrate on a single topic. These issues are sent to subscribers as usual, and are also available to buy individually from the IJP website. As of early 2009, seven Special Section issues have been published on a wide variety of topics, representing some of the leading thought in their respective
