Applied child study : a developmental approach by Anthony D Pellegrini( )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

False-memory creation in children and adults : theory, research, and implications by David F Bjorklund( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an attempt to cut through the undergrowth and get at the truth of the "recovered memory - false-memory creation" puzzle. The contributors - all prominent scholars studying the phenomenon in children or adults - review seminal research and provide the theory and critical interpretation necessary to translate theory into practice. Basic and applied memory researchers, clinical and social psychologists, and other professionals working within the helping and legal professions, will find this book a valuable addition to their libraries."--Back cover
The origins of human nature : evolutionary developmental psychology by David F Bjorklund( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The origins of human nature offers readers the first book-length attempt to define the field of evolutionary developmental psychology -- the application of the principle of natural selection to explain contemporary human development. The authors point out that an evolutionary -- developmental perspective allows one to view gene -- environment interactions, the significance of individual differences, and the role of behavior and development in evolution in much greater depth. The authors also focus on how an evolutionary perspective can foster a better understanding of human development and how developmental processes may have influenced the course of human evolution. Of particular interest are chapters that explore factors influencing parenting and other aspects of family life; the role of play; and the interacting roles of an extended juvenile period, a big brain, and a complex social structure in human cognitive evolution. The authors present a hybrid approach to evolution and development, pointing out that though underlying assumptions held by evolutionary and developmental psychologists have been at odds, each field has much to offer the other
Why youth is not wasted on the young : immaturity in human development by David F Bjorklund( Book )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and Dutch and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Humans take longer to reach maturity than most other species on earth. We are the "Peter Pans of the Animal Kingdom." In this look at the nature of childhood, developmental psychologist David Bjorklund applies more than thirty years of research and writing experience to understanding not only why humans have evolved this way, but what role this period of immaturity plays in the social, emotional, and educational needs of today's children. Challenging common perceptions of children as simply "adults in training, " Why Youth is Not Wasted on the Young urges readers to re-examine childhood through an evolutionary lens, seeing it as an essential stage of development with its own unique purposes, separate from those of adulthood; a time of growth and discovery that should not be rushed."--Jacket
Children's thinking : developmental function and individual differences by David F Bjorklund( Book )

35 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in English and Turkish and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Origins of the social mind : evolutionary psychology and child development( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important volume brings together an array of prominent developmental scientists whose work is explicitly driven by evolutionary concerns. Presenting sophisticated new models for understanding basic questions of nature and nurture, the authors demonstrate how evolutionary knowledge can enhance our understanding of key aspects of social, personality, and cognitive development." "Synthesizing disparate areas of research to provide innovative perspectives on both normal and maladaptive development, this authoritative book will build the knowledge base and fuel further investigation among researchers and students in developmental, social, and evolutionary psychology. It will serve as a uniquely informative text in graduate-level courses."--Jacket
Children's strategies : contemporary views of cognitive development by David F Bjorklund( Book )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the issues central to both classic and contemporary theories of cognitive development is children's goal-directed behavior, which is typically investigated in terms of strategies. This book brings together in one volume the latest research and theory regarding the development of children's strategies for a variety of cognitive tasks. Opening with a history of strategy development research and concluding with a chapter that integrates the diversity of ideas expressed by the contributors, Children's Strategies offers intervening chapters that examine strategy development for attention, analogical reasoning, mathematics, memory, reading, and problem solving in infancy. Although there is much common ground shared by the various contributors to this volume, there is no consensus concerning what exactly a strategy is. This mixture of consensus and disagreement reflects both the explosion of research in this area since the late 1960's and the complexity of the issues involved. It also reflects the fact that this is a topic that is very much alive in cognitive circles, one that will continue to stimulate research for years to come. The papers in this volume describe current research and theory concerning the development of children's strategies for handling a variety of cognitive tasks. After providing a historical view of the concept of strategies in cognitive development, the book highlights many of the issues of concern to contemporary developmental psychologists interested in strategies. The issues discussed include problem solving in infancy, memory, selective attention, mathematics, analogical reasoning, and reading

36 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sixth Edition of the topically organized Children's Thinking presents a current, comprehensive, and dynamic examination of cognitive development. The book covers individual children and their developmental journeys while also following the general paths of overall cognitive development in children. This unique and effective approach gives readers a holistic view of children's cognitive development, acknowledging that while no two children are exactly alike, they tend to follow similar developmental patterns. Supported by the latest research studies and data, the Sixth Edition provides valuable insights for readers to better understand and work with children."--Page 4 de la couverture

The handbook of evolutionary psychology by David M Buss( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The foundations of practice and the most recent discoveries in the intriguing new field of evolutionary psychology: Why is the mind designed the way it is? How does input from the environment interact with the mind to produce behavior? By taking aim at such questions, the science of evolutionary psychology has emerged as a vibrant new discipline producing groundbreaking insights. In The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology, leading contributors discuss the foundations of the field as well as recent discoveries currently shaping this burgeoning area of psychology. Guided by an editorial board made up of such luminaries as Leda Cosmides, John Tooby, Don Symons, Steve Pinker, Martin Daly, Margo Wilson, and Helena Cronin, the text's chapters delve into a comprehensive range of topics, covering the full range of the discipline: *Foundations of evolutionary psychology * Survival * Mating * Parenting and kinship * Group living * Interfaces with traditional disciplines of evolutionary psychology * And interfaces across disciplines. In addition to an in-depth survey of the theory and practice of evolutionary psychology, the text also features an enlightening discussion of this discipline in the context of the law, medicine, and culture. An Afterword by Richard Dawkins provides some final thoughts from the renowned writer and exponent of evolutionary theory. Designed to set the standard for handbooks in the field, The Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology is an indispensable reference tool for every evolutionary psychologist and student
