The third edition of Life Span Human Development is one of the best uni textbooks available to help students gain a deeper understanding of the many interacting forces affecting development, from infancy to childhood, through to adolescence and adulthood.
The content of this textbook includes online components, as well as discussions on local, multicultural and indigenous issues and perspectives.
Local research in development, regionally relevant statistical information and national guidelines on health are also included.
Taking a unique integrated topical-chronological approach that stands out from other uni textbooks, each chapter features sub-sections on the four life stages: infancy, childhood, adolescence and adulthood, while maintaining a focus on a domain of development, such as: physical growth, cognition, or personality; tracing developmental trends and influences in that domain from infancy to old age.
This distinctive organisation enables students to comprehend the processes of transformation that occurs in key areas of human development.
All current edition textbooks come with complementary premium online teaching and learning tools that are available for purchase via the MindTap platform.
