This popular, topically organized, and thoroughly updated child and adolescent development text presents students with the best theories, research, and practical advice that developmentalists have to offer today. Authors David R. Shaffer and Katherine Kipp provide students with a current and comprehensive overview of child and adolescent development, written in clear, concise language that talks "to" students rather than "at" them. The authors also focus on applications that show students how theories and research apply to real-life settings. As a result, students gain an understanding of developmental principles that will help them in their roles as parents, teachers, nurses, day-care workers, pediatricians, psychologists, or in any other capacity by which they may one day influence the lives of developing persons.

"This is an excellent textbook that takes a topical rather than a chronological approach to child and adolescent development. This topical approach makes it much more effective in fitting it into a single semester, with the idea of covering one topic each week throughout the semester. The coverage is detailed and provides sufficient depth that students can really get a basic understanding of the key concepts for the course. Also, the built-in Concept Checks throughout the text help students determine whether or not they have mastered key concepts from one section before they move onto the next section of the material."
