About Child and Adolescent Development in Context

 

Like children themselves, development is dynamic. In the chronologically organized Child and Adolescent Development in Context, award-winning author Tara L. Kuther frames development research in real-life contexts, including gender, race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and more. Kuther presents highly relatable examples, vivid cross-cultural stories, and Lives in Context video case studies of real individuals, consistently prompting students to reflect on chapter content with What do you think? questions. The book emphasizes three core themes: the centrality of context, the importance of research, and the applied value of developmental science; students will come away with an understanding of these themes that they will immediately be able to apply to their own lives and future careers.

KEY FEATURES OF CHILD AND ADOLESCENT DEVELOPMENT IN CONTEXT

 

  • Lives in Context video cases build on the contextual examples that the author includes in the text, looking at the ways in which biological, cultural, community, family, racial / ethnic, and socioeconomic factors influence development. The videos include expert interviews, news clips, and observational studies that show children performing tasks at various stages of development.
  • A Lives in Context box program illustrates contexts drawn from the real world and their connections to one another, including international adoption and child outcomes, exposure to war and terrorism and children’s development, the effects of neighborhood on development, HIV infection in newborns, and the impact of family stress on health.
    • Lives in Context: Biological Influences boxes tied to each chapter’s learning objectives cover cutting-edge biological topics and prompt students to think critically about each concept. 
    • Lives in Context: Community Context boxes raise issues related to the context of community and push students to consider real world implications of concepts connected to chapter learning objectives.
    • Lives in Context: Cultural Context boxes ask students to consider traditions from the cultural context and then to think critically about how culture affects development.
    • Lives in Context: Family and Peer Context boxes discuss the family context related to each chapter and challenge learners to apply chapter content to the real world. 
    • Lives in Context: Media and Technology boxes address media and technology and their effects on development at each stage. Learners are prompted to synthesize chapter learning and apply knowledge to real world examples.
  • What do you think? questions appearing after Lives in Context boxes help students connect their own experiences to concepts as they read.
  • Intersectional Influences on Development examine the ways in which constructs of race, gender, socioeconomic level, and other variables interact and influence development.
  • Applying Developmental Science boxes illustrate current research in developmental science and how it may be applied. Examples include the effects of post-partum depression, infant sign language, autism and theory of mind, and children’s suggestibility.
  • Chapter-opening vignettes describe a child and his/her circumstances. Throughout the chapter, questions embedded in the Thinking in Context boxes ask students to consider how the material applies to the child’s circumstances and development.
  • Thinking in Context questions encourage readers to compare concepts, apply theoretical perspectives, and consider applications of research findings presented. In addition, each boxed feature concludes with critical thinking questions that challenge students to assess and evaluate the issues highlighted in that feature. 
  • Chapter-opening learning objectives, end-of-chapter summaries, and end-of-chapter review questions that return to learning objectives recap the key concepts presented in the chapter. 
  • Apply Your Knowledge sections ask students to apply their understanding to address a particular situation or problem.
