A topically organized, scientific, research-based introduction to child development, Child Psychology presents a variety of theoretical viewpoints to provide students with a well balanced view of a child's developmental process. The most current studies and research available provide students with an understanding of the principal topics of child psychology as well as an up-to-date review of recent trends in socially relevant problem areas. In Child Psychology, authors Ross D. Parke and Virginia Otis Locke have incorporated extensive updates, new coverage in many hot areas and new pedagogy throughout.
