Author: Claire W. Lyons
Publisher: Cognella Academic Publishing
Written for a non-specialist audience, From Birth to Late Adulthood: An Introduction to Lifespan Development explores human psychological development from conception to end-of-life. The book opens with a discussion of the discipline itself, in order to prepare students to appropriately contextualize and interpret the material. It then moves on to discuss the cognitive, emotional, and social aspects of psychological development, and to consider all of these in conjunction with issues of diversity. From Birth to Late Adulthood: An Introduction to Lifespan Development provides students with essential information without being overwhelming or inaccessible to introductory students. Of particular note is a preface to the text that reviews methods for studying and learning successfully. The book can be used in undergraduate psychology courses, and is also well-suited to professional courses in nursing, social work, and education.
This EPAS-ready text is an in-depth, comprehensive examination of what shapes human behavior across all major developmental stages.

This lively, comprehensive introduction to human behavior in the social environment offers a multidimensional approach to the topic, with discussion of integrative practice, theory, treatment, and services as well as matters pertaining to diversity addressed throughout the text. The text provides solid coverage of foundation knowledge, integrates the biopsychosocial dimensions for assessing social functioning, and offers case studies to illuminate the applied aspects of the content. Furthermore, as part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, the fifth edition thoroughly integrates the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), thus helping students connect foundation knowledge with specific practice concerns. Study tables and concept maps (for each discussion of behavior in the development chapters) clarify major phases of biopsychosocial development across the life span. This framework gives students a concrete tool for assessing human behavior from a perspective that reflects the values and knowledge base of the social work profession.

This lively, comprehensive introduction to human behavior in the social environment offers an integrative approach to biopsychosocial case formulations of current and developmental human behavior concerns. The sixth edition builds on prior efforts in promoting integrative assessments by adopting a specific method for completing case formulations that students apply to case studies in the book's developmental chapters. This innovation provides students with a bridge to the core competencies and recommended practice behaviors outlined in the 2015 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), thus helping them connect foundation knowledge with practice concerns. Guidelines for practice and relevant assessment tools are identified for specific life tasks and for each phase of biopsychosocial development. This edition also offers concrete methods for the translation of developmental research to assessment practices.
