Berns' best-selling text presents the socialization process of children via the powerful conceptual framework of Urie Bronfenbrenner's Ecological Model of Human Development. She takes a comprehensive look at the effects of family, child care, school, peer group, media, community, and societal factors (including culture, political ideology, economics, technology) on the socialization of the child, and provides students with numerous examples of essential concepts to enable better understanding. Truly ideal for undergraduate students and anyone who works with children, "Child, Family, School, Community: Socialization and Support" underscores the immeasurable value in preparing the child with the ability to adapt to a changing world.
