✏Gene Environment Interplay in Interpersonal Relationships across the Lifespan Book Summary : Intriguing new findings on how genes and environments work together through different stages of life take the spotlight in this significant collection. Studies from infancy to late adulthood show both forces as shaping individuals' relationships within family and non-family contexts, and examine how these relationships, in turn, continue to shape the individual. Transitional periods, in which individuals become more autonomous and relationships and personal identities become more complicated, receive special emphasis. In addition, chapters shed light on the extent to which the quantity and quality of genetic and environmental influence may shift across and even within life stages. Included in the coverage: Gene-environment interplay in parenting young children. The sibling relationship as a source of shared environment. Gene-environment transactions in childhood and adolescent problematic peer relationships. Toward a developmentally sensitive and genetically informed perspective on popularity. Spouse, parent, and co-worker: roles and relationships in adulthood. The family system as a unit of clinical care: the role of genetic systems. Behavioral geneticists, clinical psychologists, and family therapists will find in Gene-Environment Interplay in Interpersonal Relationships across the Lifespan a window into current thinking on the subject, new perspectives for understanding clients and cases, and ideas for further study.

✏Biosocial Theories of Crime Book Summary : Biosocial criminology is an emerging perspective that highlights the interdependence between genetic and environmental factors in the etiology of antisocial behaviors. However, given that biosocial criminology has only recently gained traction among criminologists, there has not been any attempt to compile some of the "classic" articles on this topic. Beaver and Walsh's edited volume addresses this gap in the literature by identifying some of the most influential biosocial criminological articles and including them in a single resource. The articles covered in this volume examine the connection between genetics and crime, evolutionary psychology and crime, and neuroscience and crime. This volume will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding the causes of crime from a biosocial criminological perspective.

✏Gene Environment Transactions in Developmental Psychopathology Book Summary : This book examines the current research in gene-environment transactions (GEX) and its potential use in developing interventions and applications tailored to individual genetic makeups. Key concepts underlying GEX studies in this area are defined, identifying fundamental challenges in devising informed research questions and conducting valid and useful experiments. Chapters analyze GEX models inspired by the present day genome-based frameworks, particularly in terms of advances in identifying and understanding complex environmental factors, using examples from common psychological conditions, such as antisocial behavior, chronic physical aggression, and chronic internalizing disorder. In addition, the book presents new and potential applications of the framework in the contexts of prevention science and intervention research. Topics featured in this book include: Epigenetics and the biology of gene x environment interactions. Gene by environment interactions and its potential use for intervention strategies in anxiety disorders. The challenges and potential for research on gene-environment interactions within autism spectrum disorder. Using genetically informed prevention trials to test gene x environment hypothese. Challenges for intervention research within the GEX framework. Gene-Environment Transactions in Developmental Psychopathology is a must-have resource for researchers/professors, clinicians, and related professionals as well as graduate students in developmental psychology, psychiatry, human genetics, and related disciplines.

✏Gene Environment Interactions in Developmental Psychopathology Book Summary : Bringing together foremost experts, this book reviews groundbreaking gene–environment research and explores implications for clinical practice, prevention, and public policy. Presented is cutting-edge work on the interplay of genetic factors and childhood experiences in the development of mental disorders such as depression, conduct disorder, and schizophrenia. Essential topics include what scientists currently know about "susceptibility genes"; the mechanisms by which maltreatment and other stressors interact with biological susceptibilities across development; and factors that make certain children more resilient than others. Future directions for personalizing treatment and prevention efforts, thus making them more effective, are discussed.

✏Man Is by Nature a Political Animal Book Summary : In Man Is by Nature a Political Animal, Peter K. Hatemi and Rose McDermott bring together a diverse group of contributors to examine the ways in which evolutionary theory and biological research are increasingly informing analyses of political behavior. Focusing on the theoretical, methodological, and empirical frameworks of a variety of biological approaches to political attitudes and preferences, the authors consider a wide range of topics, including the comparative basis of political behavior, the utility of formal modeling informed by evolutionary theory, the genetic bases of attitudes and behaviors, psychophysiological methods and research, and the wealth of insight generated by recent research on the human brain. Through this approach, the book reveals the biological bases of many previously unexplained variances within the extant models of political behavior. The diversity of methods discussed and variety of issues examined here will make this book of great interest to students and scholars seeking a comprehensive overview of this emerging approach to the study of politics and behavior.

✏The Role of Gene and Environment Interplay in Understanding Potential Mechanisms Underlying Parenting and Children s Social emotional Development Book Summary : Children's social-emotional development is important for the quality of one's life. Based on the bioecological theory and family process model, this dissertation aims to understand the mechanisms underlying parenting and children's social-emotional development, focusing on gene and environment interplay using serotonin genes. Grounded on the literature review in Chapter 1, Chapter 2 investigated whether children with sensitive genes were more likely to show social competence if they experienced positive relationships in an earlier period. The results showed that children with sensitive alleles on 5-HTTLPR or STin2 were likely to show greater social competence if they were securely attached to mothers. Chapter 3 tested mediated and moderated paths from mothers' and children's genes to child behavior problems via child temperament and mothers' negative parenting behaviors. Based on the conceptual framework about gene and environment interplay, I tested gene and environment correlations (passive, active, and evocative) and interaction. The results showed that mothers' sensitive allele(s) on TPH2 rs4570625 inherited to their children and children with sensitive allele(s) were more likely to show anxious and withdrawn behavior problems via mothers' psychological aggression (passive rGE). Children with sensitive allele(s) on 5-HTTLPR were likely to show difficult temperament in infancy and anxious behavior problems after entering schools (active rGE). Children with sensitive allele(s) on 5-HTTLPR were also likely to receive mothers' negative parenting behaviors and to experience more internalizing behavior problems. However, sequential mediation paths supporting evocative rGE were not statistically significant, and there was no significant moderation (G x E) found. After I examined the association between children’s genes and their social-emotional behaviors in Chapters 2 and 3, I investigated the association among mothers’ genes, fathers' support, and mothers' parenting behaviors in Chapter 4. Mothers who had at least one or more sensitive alelle(s) on 5-HTTLPR were less likely to show physical aggression to children if they received more coparenting support from fathers. However, if mothers received greater childcare provision from fathers, mothers with sensitive allele(s) were more likely to show physical and psychological aggression to their children. Chapter 5 summarized major findings of these studies, discussed weaknesses, and provided suggestions for future research.

✏Handbook of Life Span Development Book Summary : "The handbook is an impressive collection of research studies and theories provided by knowledgeable contributors on life-span development from conception to old age."--Anthropology and Aging Quarterly The doubling of our average life span since the turn of the 20th century is considered by many scholars to be one of the most important changes in human existence. This definitive text is the only volume to fully address, through a multidisciplinary perspective, the biological, cognitive, and psychological development that occurs from infancy through old age, and how the sociocultural and institutional factors interface with these changes. Edited by leading research scholars in the field of life-span development, the volume also includes contributions of specialists in behavioral genetics, socioemotional selectivity theory, neuroscience, ecological models, and more. It examines the dynamics of close relationships and informal ties among the elderly population, child-parent attachment relationships as a life-span phenomenon, developmental tasks across the lifespan, continuity and discontinuity in temperament and personality, the sociocultural context of cognition across the life span, and variability in approaches to social problem solving from early to later life. Given the number of recent demographic shifts, it also explores issues related to fertility, life expectancy, environmental contexts, technology, immigration, and public policy. Key Features: Integrates the full life span from infancy through old age in each chapter Considers multidisciplinary perspectives that address personal relationships, cognitive development, and social, emotional, and physical health across the life span Situates life-span development in ecological contexts (e.g., socioeconomic, neighborhood, and immigration status) Provides a concise but thorough resource for graduate seminars in life-span-related studies Highlights future issues in all areas of life-span study
