Overview

Intended both for the general reader and for those working in or training for the caring professions, this volume provides an introduction to the main ideas about how human beings grow and change over their lives—emotionally, intellectually, psychologically, and socially. The author, whose academic background is not described, presents many different perspectives on the processes of human growth and development but emphasizes psychosocial and pragmatic viewpoints. The book begins at birth and ends with death, corresponding roughly to the course of a human life throughout, and each chapter includes several activities that provide opportunities to reflect.
