About this title

Synopsis:

This text is a comprehensive yet understandable introduction to the nature of human growth and development. Organised chronologically, the text offers balanced coverage of the entire life cycle, this integrated treatment of all stages of development demonstrates and aids understanding of how early growth stages influence later life. Features: * Seven lifespan themes are introduced in Chapter 1 and emphasized throughout the book: nature/nurture, continuity/discontinuity, epigenetic principle, active/reactive development, theoretical perspectives, gender and interrelated aging processes. * The development chapters are organized into units, which include unit reviews and chapter reviews to facilitate study and to offer the instructor the option of incorporating a topical approach. * Lifespan Development in Action boxes bridge the gap between academic concepts and the practical experiences of students. New to this edition: * Thinking Questions in margins help students think critically about the lifespan themes throughout the text. * End of chapter Thinking in Action exercises focus on application of material. * Focus on Diversity boxes, formerly International Lifespan Development, now explore ethnic and multicultural issues, as well as international and cross-cultural topics in human development. * Approximately 1,500 new research citations update the coverage of genetics, adulthood, and other significant areas. * Chapters 1 and 2 are reorganized to clarify emphasis on lifespan themes and expand coverage of sociological and humanistic theories. * Expanded, improved, and integrated ancillary package features new authors for each item and new media items as well.
