"Michael Rutter sets out in layman's terms what genetic science has discovered to date, explaining exactly what genes do, how much is nature and how much is nurture. He argues that nature and nurture are not truly separate, giving powerful illustrations of how the two interact to determine our behavior. He also considers the implications of genetic findings for policy and practice. This account will inform public debate about the implications of the Human Genome Project and, more broadly, the field of genetic science."--Jacket

Psychosocial disturbances in young people : challenges for prevention( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the time of the Second World War, there has been a marked rise in all sorts of psychosocial problems in young people - criminal activities, suicidal behavior, alcohol and drug abuse, depression, and eating disorders. The rise has been striking because during this same time period, the physical health of people and their living conditions have improved in most developed countries. Why have psychosocial disorders in adolescents increased and what can be done to prevent the disorders or at least to reduce their adverse impact? In Psychosocial Disturbances in Young People: Challenges for Prevention, top experts provide an overview of adolescent problems, ranging from delinquency to depression, addressing these key questions: To what extent is the problem meaningfully separate from other disorders occurring in the same age group? What are the respective influences of individual, family, and societal factors in the etiology of such problems? To what extent are there similarities or differences in the presentation and cause of these problems in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood? To what extent are there continuities between childhood and adulthood, and what are the risk factors and protective factors? The contributors examine ways that problems might be prevented through schools, youth organizations, and other mechanisms for coping with stress. The volume successfully integrates various perspectives, with a summary chapter framing the issue of psychosocial problems in adolescence

Deprivation-specific psychological patterns : effects of institutional deprivation by Michael Rutter( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English and Romanian Adoptees (ERA) study constituted an invaluable natural experiment in which there was a rapid, easily-timed transition from a profoundly depriving environment in Romanian institutions to generally well-functioning adoptive families in England. Multimodal methods of assessment were used throughout the assessments at 4, 6, 11, and 15 years of age. Four key findings were particularly striking. First, institutional deprivation was associated with an apparently deprivation-specific pattern of combinations of quasiautism, disinhibited attachment, cognitive impairment, and inattention/overactivity. Second, longitudinal growth curves showed a relative deceleration of growth between 11 and 15 years (possibly due to early puberty). Third, institutional deprivation without subnutrition was associated with a major impairment in head growth. Fourth, the effects of institutional deprivation were as strong at 15 years as they had been earlier in childhood. From publisher description

Developing minds : challenge and continuity across the life span by Michael Rutter( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most models of human development end abruptly with adolescence. But, according to the internationally renowned theorist and researcher Michael Rutter, we continue to mature throughout our life span. In this volume, Michael Rutter and Marjorie Rutter chart out in nontechnical language a comprehensive and vivid map of human growth from cradle to grave. Arguing that there are discontinuities as well as continuities to the growth process, they trace how basic aspects of psychological functioning (such as emotion and cognition) change over the course of life. The volume is organized around themes - anger and aggression, social relationships, intelligence and language - rather than specific age periods. Thus we see the parallels between life crises and challenges at different times of life (such as adolescence and old age). This original approach also reveals the full significance of both resilient and maladaptive responses to stress and adversity. The authors thoroughly mine decades of developmental research to transmute findings into brilliant nuggets of clinical wisdom. Covering all factors - genetic, social, historical, cognitive, biological - that shape human development, this pioneering book explores and explains not only the universal aspects of maturation but also how we each end up on our individual paths

Ethnicity and causal mechanisms by Michael Rutter( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research clearly indicates that ethnic groups differ significantly on levels of mental and physical health, antisocial behavior, and educational attainment. This book explains these variations among ethnic groups with respect to their psychological and social functioning and tests competing hypotheses about the mechanisms that might cause the functioning to be better, worse, or different in pattern from other groups. Attention is paid to educational attainments, antisocial behavior, schizophrenia and suicide, and to the complex and changing patterns of ethnic identity. The book also focuses on evidence on risk and protective factors that is used systematically to ask whether such factors might account for the differences in both migration histories and ethnic mixture. It concludes with a discussion of the multiple meanings of ethnicity, the major variations among ethnic groups, and the policy implications of the findings discussed in the book
