"Takes a lifespan approach with much greater emphasis on adulthood and 'old' age than many other developmental books. This reflects the continual increase in this portion of the population in present day society. Uses one central model (the 'challenge-risk' model) throughout to tie all the different stages of the lifespan together, making this topic much less confusing for students. Introduces other theoretical models where appropriate to provide a balanced view of approaches to the subject. Includes world-wide research findings and examples. Considers developmental psychology as an interdisciplinary topic, looking at motor, cognitive and social skills together rather than as unrelated topics." --Thomson.

The combined features that distinguish this text from other titles can be summarized with an acronym: CARE C utting edge research A pplied developmental science R eadability E ssential knowledge Written by respected child, adolescent, and adulthood development experts, this authoritative and chronologically organized text presents an integrated perspective on lifespan development. The authors write in an engaging manner, synthesizing biological, social, cultural, and socioeconomic influences as opposed to organizing content around developmental themes. Incorporation of classic and cutting-edge research includes extensive coverage of new research in developmental neuroscience, which has transformed the study of lifespan development by introducing brain maturation. At the same time, the text emphasizes the application of developmental psychology to real world problems, focusing on the ways in which knowledge of child development can inform social policy and practice in the fields of child care, education, mental health, and family life. The text also examines the many fascinating changes that take place through adulthood to help students answer the important question: Who will I become tomorrow? And with a separate epilogue that focuses on death and dying, the book takes students on a developmental journey from our first breath to our last. Reflecting the authors' combined expertise, the broad array of real-life examples resonate with students from different backgrounds and fields of study, and with different occupational goals in mind. With its distinctive and effective combination of cutting-edge research, applications, readability, and essential knowledge, this text helps students understand and appreciate what today's scientists are discovering about human development across the lifespan, how they study the process, and how this knowledge can be used to improve the lives of infants, children, adolescents, and adults around the world.

With a unique balance and depth of coverage across all age groups, this book examines the physical and intellectual changes humans undergo from conception through death. Kaplan builds on basic themes of life-span development, allowing readers to examine the entire human life experience, whereas many life-span books are weighted in childhood and adolescence. And by putting the experiences into context--such as the family, school and community, and culture--the author is able to include a level of applied information that consistently captures student interest

How does context impact human growth and development? Do the places, sociocultural environments, and ways in which we are raised influence who we become and how we grow and change throughout our lives? Tara L. Kuther helps students discover the answers with Lifespan Development: Lives in Context, Second Edition. Taking a chronological approach, the textbook follows three core themes: the centrality of context, the importance of research, and the applied value of developmental science. Dr. Kuther’s clear, concise narrative guides students through current and classic studies and foundational theories while exploring real-world connections and culturally diverse perspectives. Case studies, policy applications, and other examples are accompanied by opportunities for personal reflection to help students carry these discoveries into their own lives and future careers.
