In this bestselling textbook, contributors describe theories of
normal human development advanced by such pioneers as Sigmund
Freud, Anna Freud, Jean Piaget, Nancy Chodorow, Daniel Levinson,
Erik Erikson, and Margaret Mahler. Beginning with infancy,
toddlerhood, and preschool, each chapter examines corresponding
ideologies concerning maturation and development in middle
childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age, while acknowledging
that no one theory can encompass all aspects of human development.
In-depth analyses of the psychology and sociology of development
provide educators and practitioners with insights into the specific
social contexts of human behavior and help identify variables and
deviations. This second edition features up-to-date empirical
information, including additional studies on diverse populations,
and a new chapter on attachment theory, a growing area of interest
for today's clinicians.
Subjects: Sociology, Psychology
