Most widely held works by Theodore D Wachs
Temperament in context ( file )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 841 libraries worldwide
"Reflecting the editors' view that the interface between temperament and context is a bi-directional phenomenon, the volume focuses on three broad issues: how individual differences in temperament act to influence the proximal context within which the individual functions; how individual differences in proximal context act to influence both individual temperament and changes in temperament over time; and how our ability to predict developmental outcomes as a function of individual variability in temperament depends, in part, on the nature of the individual's context." "This book is recommended for use by scholars and practitioners involved in the developmental science and family studies areas."--BOOK JACKET
Temperament : individual differences at the interface of biology and behavior by John E Bates( Book )
18 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 699 libraries worldwide
This book brings together leading examples of the recent research on the biological origins of temperament-related behavior. The book was intended to be useful not only for behaviorally oriented researchers who have found it difficult to keep up with the exciting developments in neuroscience, but also for biologically oriented researchers who might gain a greater appreciation for how their skills and knowledge might be creatively applied to the socially and scientifically important questions emerging from research on human individual differences. The chapters presented here describe advances in the description and understanding of the brain processes associated with temperament-like behavioral events and more molar individual difference patterns. At the same time, they suggest alternatives to the traditional ways in which one thinks about and designs research on temperament. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
Necessary but not sufficient : the respective roles of single and multiple influences on individual development by Theodore D Wachs( Book )
14 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 608 libraries worldwide
This book uses a body of evidence to demonstrate that the variability of an individual's behavior is best understood as the result of influences from multiple domains operating over time. These domains of influence are evolution, genetics, neurology, biomedicine, nutrition, individual characteristics of the child such as temperament and intelligence, proximal environmental influences, parental beliefs and the home and school environment, and distal environmental influences such as the local and national culture. The author describes the operating processes that all of these have in common and explains how these processes meet the criteria for a fully fledged system. The book concludes with the practical implications of this approach, including the need to improve research design and create more effective assessment and intervention for children whose health development is at risk.

Measuring environment across the life span : emerging methods and concepts ( Book )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 548 libraries worldwide
"Psychologists have long understood that laboratory settings only approximate genuine human environments. Yet, how can the influence of the real world, with all its complexity and variability, be measured? This edited volume deals with this question by providing theoretical models and testing methods for quantifying physical and social environments that serve as contexts of human development." "This volume represents the state of the art in environmental assessment procedures and will be a welcome resource for psychologists specializing in assessment, methodology, and development."--BOOK JACKET

Chaos and its influence on children's development : an ecological perspective by Gary W Evans( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 454 libraries worldwide
This book explores how, why and at what level chaos at the familial and societal level affects children. It uses Urie Bronfenbrenner's bioecological theory of human development as the means to understand the nature of relations between chaos and development
The Nature of Nurture by Theodore D Wachs( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 428 libraries worldwide
Current knowledge about the nature of environmental influences upon children's development is synthesized in this volume. Wachs explores such issues as individual differences in response to stress, medical treatment, parenting styles and teaching approaches, and examines such questions as whether there are certain periods in children's development when they may be more sensitive to specific environmental influences than at other times, and whether girls are more sensitive than boys to parental maltreatment
Conceptualization and measurement of organism-environment interaction ( Book )
19 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
A book examining the paradox that organism-environment interaction has been well documented for a variety of developmental outcomes but that this interaction has been difficult to demonstrate in behavioral research studies, the "Conceptualization and Measurement of Organism-Environment Interaction" is now off press. Examples of conceptual and methodological factors that have blocked researchers' abilities to identify existing organism-environment interactions are discussed. Some of these factors include studies with insufficient power to detect interactions, studies that oversimplify the processes of interactions, statistical analyses that are insensitive to certain interactions, research strategies that are marred by a poor choice of groups or measures, and a lack of the theory-driven research that is most likely to reveal interactions. By clarifying these shortcomings, the authors aim to promote more and better research on the developmental effects of organism-environment interactions.

Chaos and its influence on children's development : an ecological perspective ( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"Historically, developmental psychologists have tended to focus on the effects of understimulation and certain types of deprivation on child development. More recently, researchers have shifted their attention to the deleterious effects of overstimulation or "chaos" in children's environment. Chaos refers to physical and social settings characterized by crowding, noise, unpredictability or a lack of routines, and instability or unplanned changes. This book is an important first step in exploring how, why, and at what level, chaos at the familial and societal level affects children. The contributors to the volume honor the work of Urie Bronfenbrenner, whose bioecological theory of human development provides a rich conceptual basis for understanding the impact of environmental chaos. The theory permits study at what Bronfenbrenner called the "microsystem" level (family, school, and day care), as well as at higher-order levels that include parents' work environments, the child's local neighborhood, and his or her cultural milieu. Within this framework, the role of individual characteristics and other moderating and mediating mechanisms can be fruitfully explored, as well as how chaos relates to poverty and culture. These elements are explored both as independent influences and collective, interrelated influences. The topics explored in this book will be thought provoking for developmental scientists interested in the study of environmental contributions to development, as well as practitioners and policymakers interested in promoting children's healthy development"--Jacket.
