Lifespan Development
Lives in Context

Third Edition

Other Titles in:
Lifespan | Psychology (General)

March 2022 | SAGE Publications, Inc
How does context impact human growth and development? Do the places, sociocultural environments, and ways in which we are raised influence who we become and how we grow and change throughout our lives? Best-selling author Tara Kuther helps students discover the answers with Lifespan Development: Lives in Context, Third Edition.

Taking a chronological approach, the book follows three core themes: the centrality of context, the importance of research, and the applied value of developmental science. Dr. Kuther’s clear, concise narrative guides students through current and classic studies and foundational theories while exploring real-world connections and culturally diverse perspectives. Case studies, policy applications, and other examples are accompanied by opportunities for personal reflection to help students carry these discoveries into their own lives, relationships, and future careers.
