Childhood, 2nd Australasian edition explores the physical, cognitive and social development of children within Australian and New Zealand context. The text's comprehensive theory coverage includes the latest local and international research in this ever evolving field, and is perfectly complemented by numerous physical and mental health applications within local psychological, educational and allied health settings.

A key strength of the text and its extensive accompanying online resources is its integrated coverage of cross-cultural and indigenous issues unique to the multicultural societies of Australia and New Zealand. It is an ideal resource offering for undergraduate students in both countries in order to enhance understanding of child development, from conception through to adolescence.
