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

19 editions published between 1934 and 1976 in English and held by 432 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( )

12 editions published between 1937 and 1970 in English and held by 147 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.

The visual material in this film, compiled over a twenty-year period, is taken from the photographic records of the Yale Clinic of Child Development, Arnold Gesell, M.D., director. The film illustrates the increasing command a baby has over his muscular system as he grows. His adaptive movements become more and more complex and controlled. At four weeks he is shown fixing his eyes on a person. At sixteen weeks a baby is shown holding his head steady, reaching out for blocksplaced in front of him, but unable to pick them up. At twenty-eight weeks the baby is shown grasping blocks with both hands and transferring them from hand to hand. At forty weeks the baby is filmed poking at objects and picking them up with thumb and forefinger opposed. At fifty-two weeks the baby is shown grasping and releasing blocks and putting blocks one on top of the other. He picks up a pellet with thumb and forefinger. At eighteen months the baby is shown building athree-block tower, putting small pellets into a bottle, and making marks with a crayon. At two years he is seen building a taller tower and imitating crayon strokes. At three years the child is filmed building a ten-block tower, a three-block bridge, and imitating simple drawings. The children filmed at four and five years of age exhibit increasing grace and skill in handling objects. At the end of the film, a number of drawings of a man, all done by different four-year-olds, is presented. They range from aimless scribble to fairly realistic, detailed sketches, reflecting the maturity, ability, and intelligence of the children who drew them
