LIFESPAN DEVELOPMENT is a chronologically organized text that presents development from a growth perspective, focusing on continuities and change throughout the lifespan. By illustrating the connections and relationships among all stages, the Lifespan Development allows students to discover that human development is a lifelong process. The Third Edition offers an even stronger emphasis on the lifespan approach to development, as exemplified by four themes: Lifelong Growth, Continuity and Change, Changing Meanings and Vantage Points, and Developmental Diversity.
