Child Development covers all ages through adolescence, focusing on a distinct domain of developmental psychology in every chapter and emphasizing theory and research. In order to help students think like researchers, the authors present a thematic approach that consistently ties findings to the six themes underlying the study of human development—the role of nature and nurture; the influence of sociocultural context; the active role of the child; continuous vs. stage-like development; the interaction of various domains of development; and the prominence of individual differences in development.
