In The Beginning
Student Manual

November 1992 | 248 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Designed to supplement In the Beginning, Second Edition, this handy manual includes new sections on: student projects and exam preparation questions. Most chapters have a discussion of a pertinent ethical or social issue to expand what's in the text; and each chapter has a section on implications of the material in that chapter for parenting, and, where appropriate, a section on implications for nursing. Each chapter also discusses a theoretical issue pertinent to research reported in the chapter, but relevant to others as well. For those students wanting the best study guide available, the Student Manual is it. "The manual thoroughly covers the material addressed in the text and provides study questions and suggestions for projects. I feel these suggestions would be very useful for students in an undergraduate psychology course, particularly if they had no previous clinical experience with infants. Utilizing this manual would make the text more meaningful for these students." --Diane Holditch-Davis, Ph.D., R.N., University of North Carolina
