The Process of Parenting describes the many ways parents and caregivers can translate their love for children into effective parenting behavior. The book has strong emphasis on the development process in terms of children’s and parents’ growth as complex individuals, and in the changing nature of their relationships over time. Because parents and children are distinct individuals, the book includes a problem-solving approach that can help parents arrive at solutions that fit them, their children, and their life circumstances. The ninth edition includes new first person narrative boxes and more emphasis on social context, new evidence-based parenting programs, and international parenting.

Jane Brooks earned her doctorate at the University of California, Berkeley. She worked as a researcher at the University’s Institute of Human Development, interviewing, testing, and carrying out research on three generations of representative families studied at the Institute. Her publications include articles relating experiences in childhood to psychological health and social maturity in adulthood. She also worked on a research project in the Department of Public Health that resulted in an article describing the behavior problems of six-thousand children including children from four major ethnic groups varying in age from nine to eleven. She has been a lecturer in the department of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, most recently teaching developmental psychology in 2006. She also served for a number of years on the Clinical Faculty in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco.

She has taught many classes for parents, teachers, and pediatricians to improve children’s well being and functioning. Her background as researcher, teacher, and clinician, as well as mother, enables her to present a wide-ranging and detailed look at the experiences of parenting and ways to help children grow and achieve their potential in life.
