Kathleen Stassen Berger's The Developing Person Through the Life Span ISBN 9780716760726 is a market-leading text that delves into the various stages of life and the developmental changes that come along with each. Through the use of theory, research, practical examples, as well as controversial issues, this resource hopes to challenge students to explore development as well as each individual's role in the community and the world. An easy to read narrative writing style is integrated with updated content, effective text features, innovative media, as well as supplements to provide the most efficient learning experience for students. Kathleen Stassen Berger has a passion for the study of human development that started soon after the birth of her first two daughters. She teaches and serves as the chair of the Social Science Department at Bronx Community College, City University of New York. Berger has published a variety of best-selling books including this text as well as The Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence and The Developing Person Through Childhood. Berger has carefully organized The Developing Person Through the Life Span into 8 sections across 25 chapters. Part I explores 'The Beginnings' which looks at topics such as heredity and environment, the genetic code, as well as prenatal development and birth. Part II looks at 'The First Two Years: Infants and Toddlers.' Chapters within this unit explore developmental changes during those first two years including body changes, the senses and motor skills, cognitive development, and emotional development. Part III explores 'The Play Years' by taking a look at the body and brain, motor skills, language, and early-childhood education. 'The School Years' are the focus of part IV with chapters looking at biosocial development, brain development, information processing, and peer groups. Part V looks at the years of 'Adolescence' with chapters devoted to puberty, intellectual, decision making, self and identify. 'Early Adulthood' is explored in part VI including topics such as emotional problems in early adulthood, moral reasoning, higher education, and intimacy. Part VII takes a look at middle adulthood with chapters centered around primary and secondary aging, selective gains and losses, family relationships, and work. Finally this text closes with part VIII which addresses 'Late Adulthood.' These concluding chapters discuss topics such as theories of aging, changes in information processing, as well as dementia.
