Briefly surveys the principles governing human development, and argues that policies in art education must take into account cultural values, development level, and individual differences
To understand the way children develop, Bronfenbrenner believes that it is necessary to observe their behavior in natural settings, while they are interacting with familiar adults over prolonged periods of time. His book offers an important blueprint for constructing a new and ecologically valid psychology of development.
This book is a magisterial treatment of the wide spectrum of psychological aspects of growing in grace as a spiritual creature, while also developing as a human being. For the author 'being human' is physical, psychological, and spiritual. The integration of all three is for him a possibility both to be desired and worked toward, not a paradox. As a teacher of teachers, Imoda has been commited to transmitting to his students a way to teach novices and laymen how growing in the love of God is a logical development from increasing the grasp of their emotional bases. For teachers this book is a 'vade mecum' which gives them a structure within which people can be encouraged to explore their emotional underpinnings, so that they may grow out of their psychological and spiritual immaturity.
Social work engages with people across the life course, and social workers are expected to work with groups of people at very different stages of their life. This book helps students gain a thorough understanding of human growth as it is a central part of their qualifying social work training and practice.
Based on research and made personal through anecdotes and real-life examples, this introduction to human development offers a combination of topical/chronological approach, an eclectic theoretical perspective, and a focus on contemporary issues and concerns.
Part of the authoritative four-volume reference that spans the entire field of child development and has set the standard against which all other scholarly references are compared. Updated and revised to reflect the new developments in the field, the Handbook of Child Psychology, Sixth Edition contains new chapters on such topics as spirituality, social understanding, and non-verbal communication. Volume 1: Theoretical Models of Human Development, edited by Richard M. Lerner, Tufts University, explores a variety of theoretical approaches, including life-span/life-course theories, socio-culture theories, structural theories, object-relations theories, and diversity and development theories. New chapters cover phenomenology and ecological systems theory, positive youth development, and religious and spiritual development.
Employing psychoanalytic theories of development, this book reveals the interplay between physical, emotional and psychological factors that contribute to the individual patterns of development. This book covers the major milestones of life, including adolescence, work, parenthood and old age.
