The Deepest Well
Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity
Paperback      ISBN: 132850266x
Adverse childhood experiences—like abuse, neglect, parental addiction, mental illness, and divorce—can have lasting effects on human health. But the stunning news of Nadine Burke Harris’s research is how, and how deeply, our bodies can be changed, imprinted for life by these ACEs. From stress responses to growth rates to diabetes, asthma, heart disease, and more, we are all a product of our childhood environments. Through powerful storytelling and fascinating scientific insight, Burke Harris illuminates her journey of discovery, from research labs nationwide to her own pediatric practice in San Francisco’s Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood. For anyone who has faced a difficult childhood, or who cares about the millions of children who do, the innovative and acclaimed health interventions outlined in The Deepest Well represent vitally important hope for preventing lifelong illness for those we love and for generations to come.

The Development of Sensory, Motor and Cognitive Capacities in Early Infancy: From Sensation to Cognition
The Development of Sensory, Motor and Cognitive Capacities in Early Infancy
From Sensation to Cognition
Paperback      ISBN: 1138883026
Research on the development of human infants has revealed remarkable capacities in recent years. Instead of stressing the limitations of the newborn, the modern approach is now more optimistically based on an assessment of the adaptive capabilities of the infant. Innate endowment, coupled with interaction with the physical and social environment, enables a developmental transition from processes deeply rooted in early perception and action to the cognitive and language abilities typical of the toddler.; This book reviews a number of issues in early human development. It includes a reconceptualization of the role of perception at the origins of development, a reconciliation of psychophysical and ecological approaches to early face perception, and building bridges between biological and psychological aspects of development in terms of brain structure and function. Topics covered include basic exploratory processes of early visual systems in early perception and action; face perception in newborns, species typical aspects of human communication, imitation, perception of the phonetic structure of speech, origins of the pointing gesture, handedness origins and development, theoretical contributions on perception and cognition, implicit and explicit knowledge in babies; sensory-motor coordination and cognition, information processing and cognition, perception, habituation and the development of intelligence from infancy.

1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 0857027581

It engages critically with the studies in order to reveal new ways of thinking both about them and about the ideas they explore.

Developmental Transitions Across the Lifespan: Selected Works of Leo B. Hendry
Developmental Transitions Across the Lifespan
Selected Works of Leo B. Hendry
Hardcover      ISBN: 1848722796
"Leo B. Hendry is one of the foremost developmental psychologists of his generation. His diverse range of interests have included studies on young people's involvement in competitive sports, investigations into teacher and pupil relations in school, adolescents' leisure pursuits and their family relations, parenting styles, youth workers and mentoring, youth unemployment, and adolescent health behaviours. His research interests now include work on ageing and retirement. Development Transitions across theLifespan is the first collection of Hendry's works, and essentially joins the dots to provide an overarching perspective on lifespan development through a dynamic systems theory approach. Underpinned by empirical research, this collection of journal articles and book chapters is linked by a contemporary commentary which not only contextualises each piece within today's research climate, but builds to provides an unorthodox, comprehensive but above all compelling perspective on human development from childhood to old age. Leo B. Hendry's research output has been significant and influential. This is an important book that will provide students and researchers in developmental psychology not only with an opportunity to view his contribution holistically, but in connecting his range of research interests, provides a new contribution to our understanding of lifespan development in its own right"--
