Lifespan Development, 1st Australasian edition explores human physical, cognitive and social development within an Australian and New Zealand context. The text's comprehensive theory coverage includes the latest local and international research in this ever evolving field, and is perfectly complemented by numerous physical and mental health applications within local psychological, allied health and educational settings.
A key strength of the text and its extensive accompanying online resources is its integrated coverage of cross-cultural and indigenous issues unique to the multicultural societies of Australia and New Zealand. It is an ideal resource offering for undergraduate students in both countries in order to enhance understanding of human development, from conception through to the end of life.
