Introduction To Human Development And Family Studies

RRP $508.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Introduction to Human Development and Family Studies is the first text to introduce human development and family studies (HDFS) as inextricably linked areas of study, giving students a complex yet realistic view of individuals and families. Pioneers of research paradigms have acknowledged that the family is one setting in which human development occurs. Moreover, in many academic programs, the lines of these two disciplines blur and much work is inherently multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary. This book helps to fortify an understanding of HDFS and subareas within it.

Vignettes from current HDFS students as well as new professionals, an overview of the lifespan stage(s) within the family context, a wide description of research methods and applications, current policy issues relevant to the area, and discussions of practice/careers coupled with strategies for pursuing specializations or careers in the area are hallmarks of this textbook. Introduction to Human Development and Family Studies is essential reading for students new to the major and minor wanting to know:

  • what is human development and family studies?,
  • who are the people involved in human development and family studies?,
  • why is human development and family studies important?,
  • how does theory and research inform work in human development and family studies?,
  • what the pursuit of being an ethical professional requires?,
  • what are the key areas in human development and family studies?

Incredibly user-friendly both on the page and online, the text also features the following resources:

  • Chapter Summaries where the main points of each chapter are pinpointed at the end of every chapter for review and study.
  • Key Terms listed and defined within the margins of every chapter, a complete Glossary at the end of the text, and Flashcards online for additional review and study.
  • Challenge: Integration sections at the end of each chapter that underscore concepts from the chapter and draws connections between content presented in other chapters.
  • Journal Questions to encourage reflection about the content and encourage thinking about some of the content coupled with students' own experiences.
  • Suggested Resources that lists relevant websites, books, articles, and video links for further study.
  • Applied Experiences Appendix outlines the internship process and shows how the internship experience can be meaningful and useful, and a Consuming Research Appendix that focuses on what it means to be a consumer of research, the knowledge and skills consumers need, and considerations for transitioning from a consumer of research to a producer of research.

* Organization and coverage. Modular organization allows flexibility for the instructor. McLeod emphasizes the entire cycle with more coverage of the phases that follow analysis and design including construction, installation and post implementation activity.
* Project management emphasis. The text is ideal for courses that assign real client projects. Students have the responsibility of managing their projects, and the text describes the planning and control mechanism used for PM, covering tools such as Gantt charts, network diagrams (CPM, PERT), and milestone charts. A "PM Toolbox" feature is integrated into each chapter, as well.
* Knowledge, tools, skills approach. The combination of chapter topics with supporting technical modules provide students with what they need to know in developing software-based systems. Real forms and templates are provided for students to use with their clients.
* Integrated case (Advanced Systems Technology Associates or ASTA) throughout the book helps students apply every concept. For courses where students do not work with real clients, the extended case introduces students to the project management issues, tools and techniques.
* Equal coverage of both structured and object-oriented programming gives instructors the flexibility to choose which methodology to emphasize.
* Coverage of web-based system design.

Arresting Developments - Lena Diaz

Somewhere over the Everglades, the airplane's engine failed and Dex Lassiter plummeted into the swamp's murky depths. Amber Callahan didn't expect to find any survivors in the wreckage, but Dex was about as tough as they came. And too smart not to dig into why a woman like her had run away to settle in remote Mystic Glades. Or why a killer circled their every move.

As floodwaters rose, deputising Dex was just what this lawless small town needed. Because escape wasn't possible. And the only thing Dex did better than starting things was defending them.

Trusting A Stranger - Melinda Di Lorenzo

Wanted for murder, Graham Calloway has hidden for years in a remote mountain cabin, desperate to find the killer who framed him. Keira Niles, too, is running from her shattered life when, during a blizzard, a mysterious, silent stranger pulls her from her wrecked car. Their sizzling attraction is instant; mutual trust is not. While Keira doubts Graham's innocence, Graham fears she'll expose him.

Instead it's an unforeseen betrayal that threatens Keira, causing Graham to risk exposure - and his life - to rescue her and redeem himself. For the first time he wants a future...but will the killer let him have one?
