Careers in Child and Adolescent Development : A Student's Guide to Working in the Field, Paperback / softback Book

Careers in Child and Adolescent Development : A Student's Guide to Working in the Field Paperback / softback


Child and Adolescent Development is a rich and continuously evolving field that offers a wealth of career opportunities.

Careers in Child and Adolescent Development is the first textbook to guide students along each step of the career path-from the levels of academic degrees and programs available, to preparations for the professional world.

It presents a brief description of the field, explores a broad array of career paths available to students, and offers some practical ideas for constructing a career plan.

Students are provided with practical, up-to-date information about career opportunities, combined with real-life vignettes to illustrate the challenges and rewards these careers hold.

The book presents traditional career paths in fields such as child and adolescent development, elementary education, educational leadership, and school counseling, as well as non-traditional or emerging career paths in child life and behavior analysis, research, academia, non-profit work, children's ministry, and family law.

It will serve as a go-to reference for students, and can be used in a fieldwork class, a service learning class, a professional development class, or a capstone class.
