The Role of the father in child development by Michael E Lamb( Book )

87 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 4,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this third edition of Dr. Michael Lamb's remarkable Role of the Father in Child Development, a team of leading experts provides a complete and up-to-date summary of the current scholarship on fathers and fatherhood, father-child relationships, and the influence of the father on the development of the child. This edition is characterized by a broader view of the social context within which these relationships take place, including ethnicity, marital quality, and the operation of particular ideals of fatherhood." "The book begins with an overview of the father's role, a look at paternal imagery in psychology and religion, and a historical review of the changing ideals of fatherhood. This is followed by an examination of the marital context in which fatherhood conventionally takes place and the different levels, sources, and consequences of paternal involvement with the child. The next four chapters examine the father-child relationship at different stages of the child's development and, taken together, constitute a study in the evolution of this relationship and its effects (both direct and indirect) on child development. The book concludes with explorations of nonconventional or particularly difficult relationships, including those experienced by divorced fathers, stepfathers, gay fathers, adolescent fathers, abusive fathers, and fathers of children with disabilities." "For developmental, family, and clinical psychologists, child psychiatrists, researchers, social workers, and anyone involved in developmental psychology or child custody issues, this book offers rich detail, authoritative analysis, and profound insight into one of the most important relationships that any child will ever have."--Jacket

Conceptualizing and measuring father involvement by Randal D Day( )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the result of an invited conference of scholars studying father involvement who were asked to reflect on the conceptualization and measurement of father involvement within the academic and policymaking communities. The central motivation for organizing the workshop and the resulting volume was a belief that family scholars and policymakers could enhance their insight and impact, respectively, if they achieved greater conceptual clarity and developed more refined measures of men's roles in family life

This reviews the latest research on fathering from every continent, from cultures representing over 50 per cent of the world's population. International experts on 14 societies and regions discuss cultural and historical influences, variations between and within cultures, and socio economic conditions and policies that impact fathering. Contributors from several disciplines provide reviews of the empirical data to help us gain an understanding of fathering worldwide. Over 1,000 studies on fathering published in languages other than English are made accessible to readers around the world. The cultures were selected based on availability of substantial research on fathering; representation of worldwide geography; a balance between large, middle, and small populations; and significance for a global understanding of fathering. Each chapter features personal case stories, photos, and maps to help readers create an engaging picture for each culture. Empirical evidence is blended with the authors' expert opinions providing a comprehensive view of what it is like to be a father in each culture. The book opens by explaining theoretical and methodological underpinnings of research on fathers. The main chapters are then organized by world regions including Asia and the Middle East, Africa, North and South America, Europe, and Australia. The conclusions chapter integrates and compares all the chapters and makes suggestions for future research

""Developmental Science: An Advanced Textbook is the most complete and cutting-edge introduction to the field available today.

This edition is no exception, as it continues to underscore the dynamic and exciting status of contemporary developmental science. In this Seventh Edition, Marc H. Bornstein and Michael E. Lamb once again invite international experts to prepare original, comprehensive, and topical treatments of the major areas of developmental science, which are masterfully woven into a single coherent volume. Some chapters in this edition are new, and those carried forward from the sixth edition have been extensively revised. This volume represents faithfully the current status of scholarly efforts in all aspects of developmental science.""--Publisher's description."

Tell me what happened : structured investigative interviews of child victims and witnesses by Michael E Lamb( Book )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intense professional and popular interest in child sexual abuse has been fed by dramatic increases in the numbers of reported cases and by awareness that many instances of abuse might go unrecognised because the only possible sources of information - the victims - give little useful information to investigators." "Interviewers and researchers have thus made considerable efforts to understand how to make children's testimony as useful and reliable as possible. At the same time, highly publicised cases in the United States, Norway, New Zealand, the UK, and Italy, have drawn attention to the counterproductive ways in which many alleged victims of sexual abuse are interviewed."--Jacket
