The NEW Online Case Study Resource - Tangled Webs
Now you and your students can explore key issues and themes raised in the book and develop the skill of linking theory to practice with free access to a new online case study resource. By following the lives of people living in the fictional London Borough of Bexford, this series of interlinked and extended case studies will allow your students to explore complex situations, much as they might do as practitioners in their working lives, and consider what ideas about Human Growth and Development might inform their thinking and practice.
Despite being from another discipline, the text is rich with applicable theories that can be applied to students' research areas.
Very informative and a good basis to start researching growth and development
The 4th edition keeps the accessibility and captivation of the previous editions while broadening and updating the examples and application of both traditional and newer developmental research theory. I recommend this for people re-engaging with human development as well as those new to the topic area.
