Connect with Lifespan Development and connect with success Informed and driven by research. At McGraw-Hill, we have spent thousands of hours with you and your students, working to understand the key needs and concerns you face in Human Development courses. The most common topics raised include managing the vast amount of content inherent to a Lifespan course and ensuring the dependability of the assigned material—is it current and accurate? The result of this research is John Santrock’s Life-Span Development. Life-Span Development ensures students complete and understand the assigned material in a number of ways: Santrock’s hallmark Learning Goals pedagogy provides a comprehensive roadmap to the text material, clearly pointing out the core concepts fundamental to students’ learning and performance. Our adaptive study tool, LearnSmart, increases students’ efficiency in studying by identifying what they know, and more importantly what they don’t know, providing immediate remediation for the areas in which they are struggling. At the same time, instructors have access to powerful, visual reports allowing them to quickly see where students’ strengths and weaknesses lie. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. The 14th edition continues with the connections theme to help students better understand the concepts among the different aspects of life-span development. This recurring theme of connections—Developmental Connections, Topical Connections, Connecting Development to Life, Connecting with Careers, and Connections through Research—ties together concepts from across chapters to reinforce the learning process and connects the material to students’ everyday lives and future aspirations. Our Milestones of Development video series helps bring the course material to li

Life-Span Development Psychology: Research and Theory covers the issues and problems associated with a life-span conceptualization of developmental psychology. The book discusses the status,issues, and antecedents of life-span developmental psychology; an approach to theory construction in the psychology of development and aging; and models and theories of development. The text also describes the methodology and research strategy in the study of developmental change; the application of multivariate strategies to problems of measuring and structuring long-term change; and the mechanisms required for the operation of perception and recognition. Learning and retention; language; and intellectual abilities are also considered. Developmental psychologists will find the study invaluable.

Social workers, counselors and public health workers will receive coverage of the social and emotional aspects of human change across the lifespan.

This volume continues the tradition of the Life-Span Development Series, presenting overviews of research programs on a variety of developmental topics. Research and theory in life-span development have given increased attention to the issues of constancy and change in human development and to the opportunities for, and constraints on, plasticity in structure and function across life. Acknowledging the need for and existence of interconnection between age and developmental periods, it focuses on conditions for possibly discontinuous development that emerge at later periods. Contributors to this series are sensitive to the restrictive consequences of studying only specific age periods, such as old age, infancy, or adolescence. Each scholar attempts to relate the facts about one age group to similar facts about other age groups, and to move toward the study of transformation of characteristics and processes over the life span.

The book focuses on the developmental analysis of the brain-culture-environment dynamic and argues that this dynamic is interactive and reciprocal. Brain and culture co-determine each other. As a whole, this book refutes any unidirectional conception of the brain-culture dynamic. Each is influenced by and modifies the other. To capture the ubiquitous reach and significance of the mutually dependent brain-culture system, the metaphor of biocultural co-constructivism is invoked. Distinguished researchers from cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology and developmental psychology review the evidence in their respective fields. A special focus of the book is its coverage of the entire human lifespan from infancy to old age.
