Human Growth and Development in Children and Young People Summary

Human Growth and Development in Children and Young People: Theoretical and Practice Perspectives by Stephen Cowden

Unparalleled in its coverage of concepts and themes, this textbook uses insights from across sociology, psychology, criminology and other areas of expertise to show how children and young people negotiate crucial challenges and transitions in their lives. It considers a wide range of theories, issues and practice dimensions and clearly shows how they connect, with fresh insights on topics including mental health, bereavement and disability in children. Foregrounding cultural diversity as a crucial dimension of sensitive practice and placing an emphasis on thinking critically and practicing reflectively throughout, this book also: * includes helpful chapter introductions, summaries and annotated further readings; * features a range of case studies, linking theory to practice; * provides active learning exercises, enabling you to apply and consolidate learning. With a companion volume that addresses human growth and development in adults, this is an invaluable tool for students as well as a useful refresher resource for experienced practitioners.
