The Journey of Adulthood reveals the dynamic process of development from early adulthood to end of life. The authors explain the development of adults as they leave adolescence and move through their adult years. Referencing both large longitudinal studies and smaller studies of diverse groups, the text helps you understand the influences of gender, culture, ethnicity, race and socioeconomic background upon aging.
Joining author Barbara Bjorklund for the 9th Edition, new co-author Julie Earles brings a fresh perspective. In addition, fully updated content and research citations reflect the rapidly changing field of adult development. Highlights of new and updated topics include coverage of new diagnosis techniques for Alzheimer's disease and a more detailed look at young and middle-aged adults who spend time as caregivers for older adults.
