73 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) was a large-scale, interdisciplinary study of how families, schools, and neighborhoods affect child and adolescent development. One component of the PHDCN was the Longitudinal Cohort Study, which was a series of coordinated longitudinal studies that followed over 6,000 randomly selected children, adolescents, and young adults, and their primary caregivers over time to examine the changing circumstances of their lives, as well as the personal characteristics, that might lead them toward or away from a variety of antisocial behaviors. Numerous measures were administered to respondents to gauge various aspects of human development, including individual differences, as well as family, peer, and school influences. The primary caregiver version of the Generalized Anxiety Disorder instrument was administered to subjects' primary caregivers for Cohorts 3, 6, and 9. The instrument was adapted from the Anxiety module of the Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children (DISC 4) and obtained information regarding subjects' worrying and anxiety ...

The Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) was a large-scale, interdisciplinary study of how families, schools, and neighborhoods affect child and adolescent development. One component of the PHDCN was the Longitudinal Cohort Study, which was a series of coordinated longitudinal studies that followed over 6,000 randomly selected children, adolescents, and young adults, and their primary caregivers over time to examine the changing circumstances of their lives, as well as the personal characteristics, that might lead them toward or away from a variety of antisocial behaviors. Numerous measures were administered to respondents to gauge various aspects of human development, including individual differences, as well as family, peer, and school influences. The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) was a general test of intelligence, which David Wechsler, the test's author, defined as "the global capacity of the individual to act purposefully, to think rationally, and to deal effectively with his environment." In keeping with this definition of intelligence as an aggregate of mental aptitudes or abilities, the WISC-R has traditionally consisted of 13 subtests divided into two parts, verbal and performance. For this study, the WISC-R included definitions of words only. It was administered to Cohorts 6, 9, 12, and 15 ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR13604

Traditionally, the Stanford-Binet (SB) Intelligence Scale was a wide-range individual test, assessing intelligence from age two through the superior adult level. It was an age scale, requiring subjects to solve problems, give definitions, memorize new material, and use some visual-motor skills at various age levels. For this study, the SB included a vocabulary subtest consisting of providing both names of pictures and definitions of words. It was only administered to Cohort 3 ...

Women in midlife by Grace K Baruch( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Study of Women In Midlife GRACE K. BARUCH AND JEANNE BROOKS-GUNN To describe the middle years-that relatively long span when one is neither young nor old-as a neglected period may no longer be accurate, given current scientific and popular interest in adult development and aging. But midlife is still too often seen merely as a kind of staging area on the way to old age, when one gathers one's forces and tries to stock up on assets-health, money, relationships-that will be needed for the rigors of the last phase of life. The middle years have been characterized more as a transition period than as a time of growth, satisfaction, and creativity. As this volume will show, although midlife is not without its difficulties, it is, for many women, a time of unexpected pleasure, even power. MAJOR THEMES A central theme of this volume is the impact of social change. The influence of economic conditions, of ideology, of the normative timing of such life events as age of marriage and childbearing, are addressed in many chapters from hlany different perspectives. Social changes are shown to have both negative and positive consequences. On the nega tive side, for example, the sex differential in life expectancy is a biosocial phenomenon that greatly restricts the availability of sexual partners-or, more precisely, heterosexual partners-for older women
Escape from poverty : what makes a difference for children? by P. Lindsay Chase-Lansdale( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poverty rate for children in the United States exceeds that of all other Western, industrialized nations except Australia. Moreover, poverty among children has increased substantially since 1970, affecting more than one-fifth of U.S. children. These persistent high rates require new ideas in both research and public policy. This volume presents such ideas. Four arenas of possible change are addressed: mothers' employment, child care, fathers' involvement, and access to health care. These four types of change have each been brought under the umbrella of the Family Support Act of 1988, after several years of debate over welfare reform. The goal of this landmark legislation is to enable poor families to escape poverty by requiring education, employment training opportunities for mothers, and improving child support by noncustodial fathers. Escape from Poverty is designed to examine the implications of these new policy-driven changes for children. The editors have developed an interdisciplinary perspective, involving demographers, developmental psychologists, economists, health experts, historians, and sociologists - a framework essential for addressing the complexities inherent in the links between the lives of poor adults and children in our society. This book will appeal to both researchers and policy makers
Transitions through adolescence : interpersonal domains and context( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on development during adolescence has flourished in the past decade, as scholars from many disciplines focused their attention on phenomena of maturation within different social contexts. This volume includes approaches from a variety of social science disciplines investigating adolescent transitions in three domains: the peer system, the family system, and school and work contexts. Different modes of investigation (e.g., survey research and ethnographic studies) and varieties of transitions that different adolescents experience add to the richness of the research tapestry presented. In addition to their focus on research, the chapters reflect recent advances in how adolescent transitions are conceptualized, strategies for interventions, and policy implications

First-year maternal employment and child development in the first 7 years by Jeanne Brooks-Gunn( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using data from the first two phases of the NICHD Study of Early Child Care, the links between maternal employment in the first 12 months of life and cognitive, social, and emotional outcomes for children at age 3, age 4.5, and first grade are examined. Families in which mothers worked full time (55%), part time (23%) or did not work in the first year (22%) are compared. Most families involved non-Hispanic White children although some analyses did involve African-American children. Structural equation modeling results indicated that, on average, the associations between first-year maternal employment and later cognitive, social, and emotional outcomes are neutral because negative effects, where present, are offset by positive effects. The results confirmed that maternal employment in the first year of life may confer both advantages and disadvantages and that for the average non-Hispanic White child those effects balance each other

Neighborhood poverty by Jeanne Brooks-Gunn( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the most alarming phenomenon in American cities has been the transformation of many neighborhoods into isolated ghettos where poverty is the norm and violent crime, drug use, out-of-wedlock births, and soaring school dropout rates are rampant. Public concern over these destitute areas has focused on their most vulnerable inhabitants--children and adolescents. How profoundly does neighborhood poverty endanger their well-being and development? Is the influence of neighborhood more powerful than that of the family? 'Neighborhood poverty' approaches these questions with an insightful and wide-ranging investigation into the effect of community poverty on children's physical health, cognitive and verbal abilities, educational attainment, and social adjustment. This two-volume set offers the most current research and analysis from experts in the fields of child development, social psychology, sociology and economics. ... 'Volume II' incorporates empirical data on neighborhood poverty into discussions of policy and program development. The contributors point to promising community initiatives and suggest methods to strengthen neighborhood-based service programs for children. Several essays analyze the conceptual and methodological issues surrounding the measurement of neighborhood characteristics. These essays focus on the need to expand scientific insight into urban poverty by drawing on broader pools of ethnographic, epidemiological, and quantitative data. 'Volume II' explores the possibilities for a richer and more well-rounded understanding of neighborhood and poverty issues. To grasp the human cost of poverty, we must clearly understand how living in distressed neighborhoods impairs children's ability to function at every level. 'Neighborhood poverty' explores the multiple and complex paths between community, family, and childhood development. These two volumes provide and indispensable guide for social policy and demonstrate the power of interdisciplinary social science to probe complex social issues."--JSTOR website (viewed January 24, 2017)
