This comprehensive textbook provides an in-depth presentation of developmental psychology across a broad range of key issues which are at the forefront of current research. Written by an international team of experts, it gives an authoritative yet accessible account of the subject. It considers child development from infancy to adolescence, and adopts a topic based approach within a broadly chronological sequence. The chapters are grouped into five sections: Life Processes and Infancy; Cognitive and Representational Growth; Atypical Development; Interpersonal Processes; and, Towards Adulthood. This organisation of chapters allows the book to be read in any order without missing essential groundwork, depending on the needs and emphasis of the course being taught.

Review quote

This text is highly recommended to anyone who wants their students to walk away from their developmental psychology course knowledgeable about the core issues in cognitive and social development and more confident about approaching the literature on developmental neuroscience...Discussion points throughout the chapters are well thought out and will be helpful to instructors who may not be experts in developmental psychology themselves. -- Child Psychology and Psychiatry
