Summary

An expansive, topical approach to how culture impacts development
Revel™ Child Development Worldwide presents a topical examination of all stages of development — from prenatal development through middle childhood, adolescence, and emerging adulthood — through the engaging lens of culture. Cross-cultural examples integrated throughout the narrative reveal the impact of cultural factors both in the US and around the world. Authors Lene Arnett Jensen and Jeffrey Jensen Arnett emphasize culture to foster a thorough, balanced view of development that prepares students to face challenges in our diverse and globalized world — whether they travel the globe or remain in their hometowns.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.


Author Biography

Lene Arnett Jensen is Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. She received her Ph.D. in developmental psychology in 1994 from the University of Chicago, and did a one-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California — Berkeley. Prior to coming to Clark University, she taught at the University of Missouri and Catholic University of America.

She aims through scholarship and professional collaboration to move the discipline of psychology toward understanding development both in terms of what is universal and what is cultural. She terms this a “cultural-developmental approach.” Her research addresses moral development and cultural identity formation. Together with her students, she has conducted research in countries such as Denmark, India, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States. Her publications include New Horizons in Developmental Theory and Research (2005, with Reed Larson, Jossey-Bass/Wiley), Immigrant Civic Engagement: New Translations (2008, with Constance Flanagan, Taylor-Francis), Bridging Cultural and Developmental Psychology: New Syntheses for Theory, Research and Policy (2011, Oxford University Press), the Oxford Handbook of Human Development and Culture (2015, Oxford University Press), Moral Development in a Global World: Research from a Cultural-Developmental Perspective (2015, Cambridge University Press), and the O xford Handbook of Moral Development (forthcoming, Oxford University Press).

From 2004 to 2015, she was editor-in-chief for the journal New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development (with Reed Larson). She served as program chair for the 2012 biennial conference of the Society for Research on Adolescence (with Xinyin Chen), and recently served on awards committees for the Society for Research on Child Development (SRCD) and the Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA). For additional information, please see her website.

Jeffrey Jensen Arnett is a Research Professor in the Department of Psychology at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. He received his Ph.D. in developmental psychology in 1986 from the University of Virginia, and did three years of postdoctoral work at the University of Chicago. From 1992–1998 he was Associate Professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Missouri, where he taught a 300-student lifespan human development course every semester. In the fall of 2005, he was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
His primary scholarly interest for the past 20 years has been in emerging adulthood. He coined the term, and he has conducted research on emerging adults concerning a wide variety of topics, involving several different ethnic groups in American society. He is the Founding President and Executive Director of the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood (SSEA; www.ssea.org). From 2005 to 2014 he was the editor of the Journal of Adolescent Research, and currently he is on the Editorial Board of JAR and five other journals. He has published many theoretical and research papers on emerging adulthood in peer-reviewed journals, as well as the books Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood: A Cultural Approach (2018, 6th edition, Pearson), and Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens Through the Twenties (2015, 2nd edition, Oxford University Press). For more information on Dr. Arnett and his research, see his website.

Lene and Jeff live in Worcester, Massachusetts with their twins, Miles and Paris.
