Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Development

Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Development 

Dr. Jeremy Jewell is Co-Editor-in-Chief of Ten Volume Encyclopedia 

The first work on the topic of its scale, The Encyclopedia of Child and Adolescent Development is a ten volume piece – offering major theories, key concepts, discoveries, and evidence-based practices of the field.

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
