The authoritative, multi-volume reference work on child and adolescent development and psychology

The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Development presents the major theories, key concepts, disorders, and evidence-based practices of the field. Covering infancy through adolescence and emerging adulthood, this important work outlines major areas of research and examines specific topics, ongoing controversies, and current work being done by leaders in the field. The first work on the topic of its scale, the Encyclopedia offers scholarly, authoritative information from an international team of experts that spans ten volumes.

The content of the encyclopedia is organized in two main parts—Child and Adolescent—and ten subparts. The first six volumes focus on topics of growth, behavior, cognition, emotion, family, and community in child development. The final four volumes explore the history, theory, and culture of adolescent development, biology and cognition, social contexts, and of the development of the self in adolescence and emerging adulthood. Each entry contains an accessible introduction to basic concepts as well as sophisticated debates in contentious areas and ongoing research on each topic. Designed to be the first and principal resource for students, researchers and practitioners in the field, this unique work:

  • Presents the largest, most up-to-date reference work focused on child and adolescent development presently available
  • Provides comprehensive coverage of major topics rather than a very large number of briefer entries and more trivial topics
  • Covers mental health disorders that are defined by the current DSM-5
  • Examines concepts related to the historical and social context of child and adolescent development
  • Addresses culture and its effect on child and adolescent development
  • Emphasizes evidence-based practices 

The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Development is an indispensable work for students and practitioners in fields such as psychology, sociology, social work, human development, medicine and biological sciences, education, law, and history, as well as general readers with interest in the field.
