DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Work Across the Lifespan coalesces theoretical and empirical perspectives on aging and work. This volume examines a collection of human development theories that explain trajectories of change, including patterns of growth, maintenance, and decline across the adult lifespan.

In this text, the lifespan perspective serves as a lens for examining the complex relationship between aging and work. Integrating research from the fields of developmental psychology as well as industrial, work, and organizational psychology, this authoritative reference brings together the collective thinking of researchers who study work, careers, organizations, and aging. Summarizes key tenets of lifespan theories Applies lifespan theories to work, organizational life, and careers Examines age and work-related processes Provides an comprehensive lifespan perspective on work and aging Focuses on aging as a continuous intraindividual change process

Release: 2017-07-28
Editor: Routledge

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Executive Function: Development Across the Life Span presents perspectives from leading researchers and theorists on the development of executive function from infancy to late adulthood and the factors that shape its growth and decline. Executive function is the set of higher-order cognitive processes involved in regulating attention, thoughts, and actions. Relative to other cognitive domains, its development is slow and decline begins early in late adulthood. As such, it is particularly sensitive to variations in environments and experiences, and there is growing evidence that it is susceptible to intervention – important because of its link to a wide range of important life outcomes. The volume is made up of four sections. It begins with an overview of executive function’s typical development across the lifespan, providing a foundation for the remainder of the volume. The second section presents insights into mechanisms of executive function, as provided by a variety of methodological approaches. The third and fourth sections review the current research evidence on specific factors that shape executive function’s development, focusing on normative (e.g., bilingualism, physical activity, cognitive training) and clinically relevant (e.g., substance use, neurodegenerative disease) developmental pathways.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

What are the changes we see over the life-span? How can we explain them? And how do we account for individual differences? This volume continues to examine these questions and to report advances in empirical research within life-span development increasing its interdisciplinary nature. The relationships between individual development, social context, and historical change are salient issues discussed in this volume, as are nonnormative and atypical events contributing to life-span change.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The Life Span: Human Development for Helping Professionals, 4/e, provides an in-depth look at the science of human development, highlighting theories and research that have useful applications for individuals working in fields such as education, counseling, and social work. The main purpose of this book is to provide the reader with information that can be translated into professional “best practice” applications. Throughout, the text reflects the contemporary view that life span development is a process deeply embedded within and inseparable from the context of family, social network, and culture. Because the book is designed for graduate students, most topics, especially those that have special relevance to helping professionals, are covered in greater depth than in a typical life span text. The expanded coverage of research in these areas will enhance students' understanding of the scientific basis for application to practice. From reviews of the book: “This book is unique in that it is research-based, includes comprehensive coverage of important course topics, and offers helping professionals information about human development that will enhance service provision to clients across the lifespan.” --Mary M. Chittooran, Saint Louis University “The writing style is clear, interesting and engaging and is at a level appropriate for my students. Nicely done. . . . [The] case studies [and] developmental psychopathology sections are strengths. . . . [The book is] well organized, well-written, broad-based . . ., [and] insightful. [I] especially liked the authors' focus on practical and applied therapies, as well as their emphasis on research-based therapies that incorporate sound principles of human developmental.” --Rosalie A. Rohm, Ball State University “This readable, well organized text addresses the depth and scope of development. The text extends students knowledge of the material by providing a wealth of applicable information for those who are or will be in a helping profession. . . . [Compared to other available texts, this one is] far superior in terms of the balance of scope and depth.” --Kathryn Cooper, Northern Colorado University New Interactive, Multimedia Learning Features in the Video-Enhanced Pearson eText: o See real examples. Embedded videos illustrate and explain key concepts and show individuals addressing the challenges of that period of the life span. (See pages 334, 342, and 353 for examples.) o Practice applying chapter content. The Practice Using What You've Learned feature includes scaffolded video and print case exercises that challenge readers to analyze and apply chapter content. Sample responses are available through the enhanced text. (See page 366 for examples.) See how to work with people at different stages of the lifespan. Applications sections blend empirically supported information about treatments with the issues covered in each chapter, offering extensive discussion of how developmental science can inform practice. These include topics such as adolescent health and well-being, new approaches to maternity care, new interventions for promoting secure infant attachments, encouraging learning through play, helping parents avoid corporal punishment, and mindfulness-based practices, among many others. (See 357-360 for an example.)
