Barbara M. Newman, Philip R. Newman
Cengage Learning, 12-Apr-2017 - Psychology - 800 pages
Newman and Newman use a life-stage approach to present development across the life span, drawing on the psychosocial theory of Erik Erikson to provide a conceptual framework for the text.
The authors address physical, intellectual, social, and emotional growth in 11 life stages, from the prenatal period through elderhood, focusing on the idea that development results from the interdependence of these areas at every stage, and placing special emphasis on how optimal development may be fostered throughout life.
DEVELOPMENT THROUGH LIFE: A PSYCHOSOCIAL APPROACH, 13th Edition, provides a balanced view of normative patterns of development and diverse pathways, considering individual, family, cultural and societal factors that contribute to the diversity of life stories.
