Laura E Berk Publisher: The author encourages students to relate what they read to their own lives. Stories and vignettes of real individuals, a Berk signature feature, open each chapter and continue throughout the text to illustrate developmental principles and teach through engaging narrative.
Appealing and Meaningful Applications Integrated throughout the text, these applications show students how their learning relates to real-world situations. Applications are relevant to students pursuing a variety of fields, including psychology, education, nursing and other health professions, sociology, anthropology, family studies, and social services. The Look and Listen feature promotes active learning, asking students to observe what real individuals say and do, speak with or observe parents, teachers, or other professionals, and inquire into community programs and practices that influence children, adolescents, and adults.
Applying What We Know tables provide practical real-life applications based on theory and research findings. Berk speaks directly to students, as parents or future parents and to those pursuing different careers and areas of study, such as health care, teaching, social work, or counseling.

Exceptional Integration of Culture and Diversity Multicultural and cross-cultural material is presented not only in the text's research and in many positive and diverse examples, but also through rich photos and figures, which enhance student interest and understanding.
Cultural Influences boxes deepen the attention to culture threaded throughout the text and accentuate both multicultural and cross-cultural variations in development.
Milestones tables summarize major physical, cognitive, language, emotional, and social attainments of each age period. In addition to offering an overview of change, each entry is page-referenced to provide the student with a convenient tool for review. Ask Yourself critical thinking questions have been thoroughly revised and expanded into a unique pedagogical feature. Three types of questions prompt students to think about human development in diverse ways: Connect questions help students build an image of the whole person by integrating what they have learned across age periods and domains of development.

Apply questions encourage application of knowledge to controversial issues and problems faced by children, adolescents, adults, and professionals who work with them. Reflect questions personalize the study of human development by asking students to reflect on their own development, life experiences, and values.
Four Types of Thematic Boxes Biology and Environment boxes highlight the growing attention to the complex, bidirectional relationship between biology and environment. Social Issues boxes discuss the impact of social conditions on children, adolescents, and adults, and emphasize the need for sensitive social and public policies to ensure their well-being.
They are divided into two types: Social Issues: Health boxes address values and practices relevant to physical and mental health, while Social Issues: Education boxes focus on home, school, and community influences on learning.
