(Child Psychology and Mental Health) James E. Levine - Learning from Behavior_ How to Understand and Help Challenging Children in School-Praeger (2007)


The twentieth century closed with a decade devoted to the study of brain structure, function, and development that in parallel with studies of the human genome has revealed the extraordinary plasticity of bio-behavioral organization and development. The twenty-first century opens with a decade focusing on behavior, but the linkages between brain and behavior are as dynamic as the linkages between parents and children, and children and their environments.


The Child Psychology and Mental Health series is designed to capture much of this dynamic interplay by advocating for strengthening the science of child development and linking that science to issues related to mental health, child care, parenting, education, and public policy.
The series focuses primarily on individual monographs, each dealing with a subject that advances knowledge related to the interplay between normal developmental processes and life-course circumstances that deviate children away from normative developmental pathways. Occasionally, volumes emphasizing broad topics of interest will appear with authors selected to represent the breadth of research, application, and policy issues.


The books are intended to reflect the diverse methodologies and content areas encompassed by an age period ranging from conception to late adolescence. Topics of contemporary interest include studies of socio-emotional development, behavioral under control, aggression, attachment disorders, substance abuse, and the diverse contextual settings within which development occurs.
