Developmental Health and the Wealth of Nations: Social, Biological, and Educational Dynamics
Daniel P. Keating, Clyde Hertzman
Guilford Publications, Jul 1, 1999 - Psychology - 406 pages
Probing the effects of the social environment upon human development, this volume asks how we can best support the health and well-being of infants and children in an era of rapid economic and technological change. The book presents cogent findings on human development as both an individual and a population phenomenon. Topics covered include links between socioeconomic status, achievement, and health; the impact of early experience upon brain and behavioral development; and how schools and communities can develop new kinds of learning environments to enhance adaptation and foster intellectual growth. Synthesizing developmental, biological, and social perspectives, this volume will appeal to a broad interdisciplinary audience.
