This volume presents a collection of twenty-seven contributions, covering the whole of the research area in human growth and development. It is highly international in the provenance of both authors and subjects, from Kathmandu to Caracas, Oaxaca to Alice Springs. There are papers on the history of the study of human growth, on the modelling of individual growth curves, the construction of population growth reference curves, growth as a measure of population well-being, secular trend, and the much neglected subject of the relation between mental and physical development.

What is it that determines what sort of person we become? Is a child’s future personality already determined at birth, or is a newborn baby like a blank sheet, waiting to be written on by life? Is our personality determined by anything, or do we choose for ourselves who we are, create ourselves out of nothing? This bestselling introduction to emotional, psychological, intellectual and social development throughout the lifespan will help you explore these questions and many more. Written for students training for careers in the helping professions, including nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, teachers and counsellors, the book covers topics which are central to understanding people whether they are clients, service users, patients or pupils. Following the shape of a human life, beginning with birth and ending with death, it combines theoretical concepts and reflective learning to help you develop an understanding of what makes human beings grow and change over their lives to inform your decisions and professional practice.

In order to gain an understanding of the dynamics of human individual and average growth patterns it is essential that the right methods are selected. There are a variety of methods available to analyse individual growth patterns, to estimate variation in different growth measures in populations and to relate genetic and environmental factors to individual and average growth. This volume provides an overview of modern techniques for the assessment and collection of growth data and methods of analysis for individual and population growth data. The book contains the basic mathematical and statistical tools required to understand the concepts of the methods under discussion and worked examples of analyses, but it is neither a mathematical treatise, nor a recipe book for growth data analysis. Aimed at junior and senior researchers involved in the analysis of human growth data, this book will be an essential reference for anthropologists, auxologists and paediatricians.
