Careers in Child and Adolescent Development
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 early childhood education, 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.
