Janet Belsky’s Experiencing Childhood and Adolescence reflects a scientist’s understanding of key research, a psychologist’s understanding of people, and a teacher’s understanding of students. This new, brief text for child and adolescent development features significant new findings, a broad-based global perspective, and enhanced media offerings. With all of this, the book itself is at just the right length and level of coverage to fit comfortably in a single-term course.
