Development during middle childhood : the years from six to twelve by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

16 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 1,851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time, a report focuses specifically on middle childhood--a discrete, pivotal period of development.

Relationship pathways : from adolescence to young adulthood by Brett Paul Laursen( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Research on adolescent relationships has rapidly expanded during the past decade. Keeping apace with research advances is a difficult challenge. Harder still is integrating the literature into a coherent whole. This volume is designed to guide the reader through the research on close relationships before, during, and after adolescence. We are fortunate that some of the world's foremost experts on adolescent relationships agreed to summarize what is known in their respective fields of expertise. The volume begins with a section on developmental pathways and processes. This section defines relationships processes and describes individual and contextual factors that influence them. The next section is devoted to family relationships. Separate chapters are devoted to sibling relationships and parent-child relationships during the transition into adolescence and during the transition into young adulthood. The final two sections concern peer relationships"--

The Effects of early social-emotional and relationship experience on the development of young orphanage children by St. Petersburg-USA Orpahnage Research Team( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Undertaken at orphanages in Russia, this study tests the role of early social and emotion experience in the development of children. Children were exposed to either multiple caregivers who performed routine duties in a perfunctory manner with minimal interaction or fewer caregivers who were trained to engage in warm, responsive, and developmentally appropriate interactions during routine care. Engaged and responsive caregivers were associated with substantial improvements in child development and these findings provide a rationale for making similar improvements in other institutions, programs, and organizations.

Development according to parents : the nature, sources, and consequences of parents' ideas by Jacqueline J Goodnow( Book )

22 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To their everyday life with children, parents bring a number of ideas about development and about parenting. Some of these ideas are about their own children and about themselves as parents. Others are more general: ideas, for instance, about what babies are like, how children change with age, what kinds of affection and control they need, the responsibilities of mothers and fathers, or the degree of influence each parent has over the way a child develops. Moreover, the ideas that parents hold, shape their actions with children and the way they assess both their children and their own performance as parents. With the recognition of parental thinking as a powerful factor in family life, research has turned to the study of this èveryday' or ìnformal' psychology. Some of the studies deal with the nature of parents' ideas: What ideas are held? Which are most widely shared? How do these ideas differ from one another? Some deal with the sources of parents' ideas: with the factors that give rise to differences among parents from different backgrounds (different cultures, different economic groups, different degrees of experience with children). Others concentrate on the consequences of parents' ideas for themselves and for children. This monograph summarizes the research with an eye to several audiences (researchers, clinicians, educators) and with an emphasis on the questions that remain. A major goal is to point not only to significant gaps, but also to some specific ways in which they might be addressed by further research

"The definitive work on a groundbreaking longitudinal study, this volume provides a coherent picture of the nature of development from birth to adulthood. Explained are both the methodology of the Minnesota Study and its far-reaching contributions to understanding how we become who we are. Shedding new light on both positive development and maladaptation, the book is written by the researchers themselves. It is provocative, insightful, and informative reading for anyone studying or working with infants, children, and families."--Jacket
