A multidimensional approach to understanding the complexities of human behaviour and development across the lifespan
Each person is uniquely shaped throughout their life by many significant dimensions. Understanding Human Development introduces students to new ways of understanding these many dimensions and how they interact to influence human adaptation and coping across the lifespan.
Now in its third edition, this text is significantly revised to provide students with the core theoretical understandings of human development and behaviour. Each chapter introduces students to the ideas and research that will likely inform key debates, controversies and implications for practice. It aims to foster students thinking and their interest in a broad range of issues that have the potential to profoundly influence human behaviour and development.
