Integrating current research findings with foundational, classic theory and research, the second edition presents a comprehensive yet concise introduction to the field, exploring the diverse contexts that shape human development, including gender, race and ethnicity and socioeconomic status,. The text is organized around overviews brought to life in Dr. Kuther?s Chalk Talks, a series of whiteboard-style animations that feature brief, captivating videos. Lively feature boxes and critical thinking questions encourage students to compare concepts, apply theoretical perspectives, and consider applications of research findings in their own lives and future careers.

The new edition features:

  • A streamlined organization for improved readability while retaining and enhancing coverage of major findings in developmental science

  • New and current research reflecting over 1,400 references published since 2016, including nearly 900 published in 2017 and 2018, in addition to discussions of classic research
