The essential reference on human development, updated and reconceptualized

The Handbook of Child Psychology and Developmental Science, a four-volume reference, is the most comprehensive, authoritative text in the field. First published in 1946, and now in its Seventh Edition, the Handbook has long been considered the definitive guide to the field of developmental science.

With contributions from the major thought leaders in their respective specialties, this four-volume set provides comprehensive coverage of developmental science, including detailed explanations of major theories and methods. This new seventh edition has been completely revised to reflect significant advances in the field, including reconceptions of theory, cultural concerns, and applications in each succinct chapter, with information presented clearly enough to provide readers of all backgrounds a quick education in the subfields of human development. Available in book, ebook, and electronic reference form, this definitive reference is a must-read for anyone involved in psychology, sociology, anthropology, and neuroscience.
Examine the theories and methods surrounding developmental systems
Gain insight into the development of cognitive systems within the relational context
Investigate the socioemotional processes throughout developmental stages
Discover how ecological settings and processes shape child development

The scholarship across the four volumes of this edition illustrate that developmental science is in the midst of a very exciting period. There is a paradigm shift that involves increasingly greater understanding of how to describe, explain, and optimize the course of human life for diverse individuals living within diverse contexts. This Handbook is the definitive reference for educators, policy-makers, researchers, students, and practitioners in human development, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and neuroscience.
