What is included with this book?


Pathways of Human Development uses theoretical perspectives from development, social, and behavioral sciences to examine the ways that individuals, families, and communities intersect and interface. Focusing on the impact of change on human development, including its antecedents, processes, and consequences, the chapters examine a range of topics such as health and adaptation; social anxiety disorder; protective factors and risk behaviors; parent-child relationships; adolescent sexuality; intergenerational relationships; family stress and adaptation; and community resilience. By extending human development theory across these pivotal life-changing issues, this volume offers a comprehensive map of the trajectories of development among individuals, families, and communities.
