Full description for Development Through Adulthood
From career development to retirement, and from marriage to bereavement, psychological development is a never-ending process. Adulthood is a time of change and transformation, and presents many unique challenges and opportunities. Combining classic studies and cutting-edge research, Oliver Robinson's Development through Adulthood will guide you through this rich and rewarding subject. Key features: * Uniquely covers qualitative as well as quantitative research; * Individual voices bring theories to life by providing insight into real life experiences; * Cross-cultural perspectives and alternative perspectives provide examples from beyond the UK and US, offering an important counterbalance to western research; * Real-world application features highlight important intervention strategies. Development through Adulthood provides a unique interdisciplinary approach, making it invaluable reading for anybody studying human development, gerontology or an applied social science. Academically rigorous and elegantly written, it's the perfect guide to classic and current research in adult development.
