Infant behavior; its genesis and growth by Arnold Gesell( Book )

35 editions published between 1934 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication is based upon periodic developmental examinations of normative infants throughout the first year of life. The volume deals mainly with findings and genetic interpretations derived from naturalistic observation. The results of the normative survey are reported in six chapters and sixty sections. Chapter Three, which constitutes the core of the book, summarizes the behavior characteristics displayed in twenty-five different situations, instituted at fifteen age levels from four through fifty-six weeks. The newborn infant was not included in our systematic observations. We have not, however, been unmindful of the importance of the neonatal period and (in Chapter Four) have indicated its genetic relations to the fetal and later postnatal period. The book focuses on these basic categories: Postural Behavior; Locomotion; Perceptual Behavior; Prehension; Adaptive Behavior; Language Behavior; and Social Behavior"--Chapter.

The psychology of early growth, including norms of infant behavior and a method of genetic analysis by Arnold Gesell( Book )

20 editions published between 1937 and 1978 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Yale studies of infancy which began a score of years ago were first published by The Macmillan Company under the somewhat extensive title, The Mental Growth of the Preschool Child. A Psychological Outline of Normal Development from Birth to the Sixth Year, Including a System of Developmental Diagnosis. This volume, which enjoyed several reprintings, is now out of print. The present volume represents a continuation and elaboration of the earlier studies and is based upon ten years of subsequent collaborative research in the Yale Clinic of Child Development. The present volume deals particularly with the biometric aspects of the normative investigation. These three publications are organically related to each other. It is hoped that the systematic and objective methods used will bring the study of infant development into closer alignment with biological and medical sciences. We believe that the growth processes which mold the body and the behavior of the human infant are in essence comparable with those which are being successfully analyzed by experimental embryology.
