Child and Adolescent Development: A Social Justice Approach features portraits of development at each stage interwoven with the findings of developmental science research on how inequitable resources and opportunities, which are influenced by social, economic, and political factors, can impact development. The text also presents findings on how such data can be used to reduce inequities for children and their families, thereby optimizing development and allowing individuals to reach their full potential no matter who they are.

The text begins with a chapter that briefly describes the stages, domains, and patterns of child and adolescent development, as well as traditional and contemporary theories. Subsequent chapters provide insight into the research methods of developmental science and explain how epigenetic influences affect development. The book then progresses chronologically, discussing the physical, cognitive, and emotional changes that occur within each stage, guiding readers through a tapestry of development from conception through adolescence.

Throughout, Pan & Zoom sections supply both big-picture and microscopic understandings of development, Tech & Media asides highlight the influences that technology and media can have on child and adolescent development, and Mentor Minutes provide readers with practical wisdom through interviews with diverse professionals working in the field.

Featuring a timely and much-needed perspective on development, Child and Adolescent Development: A Social Justice Approach is an ideal resource for courses in psychology, education, counseling, human services, and social work.
