A Century of developmental psychology by Ross D Parke( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developmental psychology has a long but somewhat neglected history. This volume seeks to address that omission by examining the legacy of the most influential pioneers in our field and the current relevance of their thinking. /// The recent 100th anniversary of the founding of the APA [American Psychological Association] provided a unique opportunity for developmentalists to take stock of the progress of the field. . . . This book [includes] a historical overview chapter that traces not only thematic changes over the past 100 years but also shifts in theoretical, developmental, and methodological assumptions.

Children in time and place : developmental and historical insights by Glen H Elder( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each generation of American children across the tumultuous twentieth century has come of age in a very different world. How do major historical events - such as war or the depression - influence children's development? Children in Time and Place brings together social historians and developmentalists to explore the implications of a changing society for children's growth and life chances. Transitions provide a central theme, from historical transitions to the social transitions of children and their developmental experiences." "The book has two stories to tell, one about children growing up and coming of age in various times and places, and another about how collaboration worked across the disciplines of history and psychology. Children in Time and Place begins with studies that link historical and life transitions in children's lives, with an emphasis on wartime experience. It turns to studies of historical variation in the effect of life transitions, from the onset of sexual experience in girls' lives to the transition to fatherhood in boys', and it concludes by introducing the reader to the collaborative efforts involved in the workshop that led to the volume."--BOOK JACKET

Fatherhood by Ross D Parke( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dramatic changes in society over the past several decades have reconfigured the nuclear family and redefined the role of fathers. More women now work outside the home; fewer families can depend on relatives for help with childcare; more divorced fathers assume or share custody of their children. Fathers have become partners in parenthood, wielding a more direct influence on their children's development. In this new book, Parke demonstrates that men enact their fatherhood in a variety of ways in response to their particular social and cultural circumstances. And while it is becoming clear that fathers play an important role in their children's lives, it is also becoming clear that fathering is good for men

Exploring family relationships with other social contexts by Ross D Parke( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1990s it is no longer ""news"" that families do not operate independently from other social organizations and institutions. Instead, it is generally recognized that families are embedded in a complex set of relationships with other institutions and contexts outside the family. In spite of this recognition, a great deal remains to be discovered about the ways in which families are influenced by these outside agencies or how families influence the functioning of children and adults in these extra-familial settings--school, work, day-care, or peer group contexts. Moreover, little is known
