About this book

Human development from birth through adulthood is a complex interplay of many interacting forces. Children’s internal processes are manifest in behaviors that are sculpted by their experiences, most notably with primary caregivers. Because the discipline of psychology explores human behavior and cognition, the techniques employed for developmental analysis must be able to describe, depict, and quantify these complex processes.

State Space Grids provides the framework, basic method, rationale, and advanced techniques for translating the behavior of children, adolescents, and parents into visible, traceable data. This seminar-between-covers takes readers step by step from conceptualization through implementation of projects, with examples from a range of current research within and outside child development. Links are included for the GridWare software program and related user resources. And although state space grids need not be used only to analyze dynamic systems, they serve as an excellent tool for honing systemic thinking.

Key coverage in this volume includes:

Dynamic systems and the origins of state space grids.
The state of research using state space grids.
Introducing GridWare and how it works.
How to use state space grids, from idea through finished project.
Within-grid and between-grid analysis.
Conducting advanced analysis.

State Space Grids is an essential reference for researchers across such disciplines as psychology, neuroscience, economics, computer science, and agricultural science.

About the authors

Dr. Tom Hollenstein is the leading expert on state space grids and heads the project to further develop software for state space grid analysis, GridWare (www.statespacegrids.org). He was trained in observational data analysis at the Oregon Social Learning Center and received his doctoral training at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Dr. Marc Lewis, the originator of the state space grid method. Dr. Hollenstein is currently an Associate Professor of Psychology at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.
