What phase of life are you in? How about the people around you--family, co-workers, clients? The Lifespan Human Development Study Brief focuses on an area of psychology that examines each of the stages of the human life experience from conception to death. This compact reference is an ideal resource for students of psychology, nursing, sociology, social work, family development, or anyone interested in a scientific understanding of patterns of growth, aging, change and stability in human behavior that occur throughout the entire lifespan. Quick access to definitions of key terms and easy to understand explanations of foundational concepts are supported by instructive exhibits and clarifying… visuals. Major theories of physical and psychological development are outlined, including psychoanalytic, behavioral, humanist, cognitive, ecological and sociocultural approaches. Individual sections outline and describe Freud's psychosexual stages, Erikson's psychosocial stages, Pavlov's classical conditioning, Skinner's operant conditioning, Piaget's stages of cognitive development, Maslow's hierarchy of needs, Roger's person-centered theory, Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems, and Vygotsky's sociocultural cognitive theory. Quick reference charts summarize the germinal, embryonic, and fetal stages of prenatal development; and the physical, cognitive, and psychosocial milestones of infancy and toddlerhood; childhood and adolescence; and young, middle and late adulthood. The final section on death and dying discusses the five stages of grief.
