Janet Belsky is an innovative and accomplished teacher, an engaging and perceptive writer, as well as a practicing psychologist who has worked in many settings--from inner-city hospitals to nursing homes. Drawing on the sensibilities that have defined her professional life, Janet Belsky has produced an exploration of development across the lifespan unlike any other. Person-centered yet scientifically sound, practice-oriented yet rich in current and classic research, Belsky's Experiencing the Lifespan offers students an experience learning about life--that they will take to heart. And at around just 550 pages, it is an experience that fits comfortably within a single term.
Praise for Belsky's Experiencing the Lifespan
"Belsky's treatment of life-span development is state-of-the-art, thoughtful and accessible. This is an impressive book!"
Laura L. Carstensen, Ph.D.
Director, Lifespan Director, Stanford University
"The author does a great job of taking a huge field and distilling it into basic principles and theories that can be covered in a semester."
Jayne Ogden, East Texas Baptist University
"Very impressed! I felt like I was listening to a person when reading. The author's upbeat attitude, enthusiasm, and optimistic realism come through all the time."
David Devonis, Graceland University
"Reading it I felt I was sitting in (a great) class."
"This was a book I HAD to read for my developmental psychology class, but I must say that out of all the other psychology books, this author did a wonderful job of explaining development. I enjoyed this book and will continue to use it throughout my life."
"I have honestly never had so much pleasure reading for class. The way you have thoughtfully constructed the book for students has made the book a delight to read. Your textbook is the first one I have bought and not felt a bit disappointed having to purchase for class. To me it is the perfect textbook and I plan to keep it for my personal library!"
