Overview

Child Development offers a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering basic theories and research findings as well as highlighting current applications outside the laboratory. Covering childhood and adolescence chronologically, author Robert Feldman seeks to excite you about the field, to draw you into its way of looking at the world, and to mold your understanding of developmental issues.

In order to help you relate the subject matter to your world, the 9th Edition includes coverage of the coronavirus pandemic and the profound effect it has had on the world. The author also highlights discussions of diversity, equity and social justice issues as they relate to developmental issues. Updated chapter prologues and epilogues explain the real-world implications of topics, illustrating how you can apply what you're learning to real-world situations.
