Child, Adolescent and Family Development is a comprehensive study of human development in the context of the family. Incorporating the latest Australian, British and American research it is an introduction to contemporary theory and issues in the study of child and adolescent development. Heavily illustrated and with a clear design, this sensitively written text is highly readable for students in several disciplines. Modelled on a highly successful first edition published in 1993, the text has been totally reconceptualised. A more thematic linking of materials in the text will allow both students and teachers to follow development either chronologically or thematically. Also, a life cycle approach to topics as they arise will be a very useful addition for many students. The text has an array of useful features, including definitions in the margins, a glossary, discussion questions and activities. Free online support is available, including multiple choice questions, a child observation manual, an easy student guide to research design and techniques, and worksheets. Please note the book no longer comes with a CD; all the CD content is now available via the Website.
