Overview

Lifespan Development provides an introduction to developmental science that’s geared around helping you apply your understanding of development to your own life. Throughout this thorough overview of the discipline, authors Denise Boyd and Helen Bee emphasize how concepts connect to research. Combined with their down-to-earth writing style, this approach helps make abstract theoretical material understandable.

The 9th Edition has been updated to reflect changing perspectives and recent research. The authors present fresh coverage of neurological milestones of adolescence, influences on interpersonal attraction and other topics. In addition, all key terms throughout the text have been assessed and replaced as necessary with relevant contemporary terminology.
