Packed with the latest research and vivid examples, Sigelman and Rider's LIFE-SPAN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT, 10th edition, equips you with a solid understanding of the overall flow of development and the key transformations that occur in each period of the life span. Written in clear, straightforward language, each chapter focuses on a domain of development -- such as cognitive or personality development -- and traces developmental trends and influences in that domain from infancy to old age. Sections on infancy, childhood, adolescence and adulthood are included. The text emphasizes theories and their use in helping us understand development, focuses on the interplay of nature and nurture in development, and also provides an expansive examination of both biological and sociocultural influences on life-span development. Additionally, MindTap digital resources offer anywhere, anytime learning solutions.
