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.

Informed and driven by research. At McGraw-Hill, we have spent thousands of hours with you and your students, working to understand the key needs and concerns you face in Human Development courses. The most common topics raised include managing the vast amount of content inherent to a Lifespan course and ensuring the dependability of the assigned material--is it current and accurate? The result of this research is John Santrock's LifeSpan Development. LifeSpan Development ensures students complete and understand the assigned material in a number of ways: Santrock's hallmark Learning Goals pedagogy provides a comprehensive roadmap to the text material, clearly pointing out the core concepts fundamental to students' learning and performance. An adaptive study tool increases students' efficiency in studying by identifying what they know, and more importantly what they don't know, providing immediate remediation for the areas in which they are struggling. At the same time, instructors have access to powerful visual reports allowing them to quickly see where students' strengths and weaknesses lie. Connect Lifespan takes your instruction and your students' learning experience to the next level without requiring hours of setup and personalized instruction by you. The 14th edition continues with the connections theme to help students better understand the concepts among the different aspects of life-span development. This recurring theme of connections--Developmental Connections, Topical Connections, Connecting Development to Life, Connecting with Careers, and Connections through Research--ties together concepts from across chapters to reinforce the learning process and connects the material to students' everyday lives and future aspirations. Our Milestones of Development video series helps bring the course material to life, allowing students to witness development as it unfolds. And of course, all of the text material is informed by LifeSpan Development's unique board of expert consultants--a who's who of developmental psychology--who make sure the material is as accurate and up-to-date as possible.

The book focuses on the developmental analysis of the brain-culture-environment dynamic and argues that this dynamic is interactive and reciprocal. Brain and culture co-determine each other. As a whole, this book refutes any unidirectional conception of the brain-culture dynamic. Each is influenced by and modifies the other. To capture the ubiquitous reach and significance of the mutually dependent brain-culture system, the metaphor of biocultural co-constructivism is invoked. Distinguished researchers from cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology and developmental psychology review the evidence in their respective fields. A special focus of the book is its coverage of the entire human lifespan from infancy to old age.

Author Tara L. Kuther integrates cutting-edge and classic research throughout the text to present a unified story of developmental science and its applications to everyday life. Robust pedagogy, student-friendly writing, and an inviting design enhance this exciting and inclusive exploration of the ways in which context informs our understanding of the lifespan.

"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 Handbook of Life-Span Development, Volume 1: Cognition, Biology, and Methods presents the study of human development conducted by the best scholars in the 21st century. Social workers, counselors and public health workers will receive coverage of of the biological and cognitive aspects of human change across the lifespan.

This serial publication continues to review life-span research and theory in the behavioral and social sciences, particularly work done by psychologists and sociologists conducting programmatic research on current problems and refining theoretical positions. Each volume introduces excellent peer-reviewed empirical research into the field of life-span development while presenting interdisciplinary viewpoints on the topic. Often challenging accepted theories, this series is of great interest to developmental, personality, and social psychologists.
