Summary

This adult development book provides a strong social approach to the psychology of adulthood and aging, without losing an emphasis on cognitive development. The impact of gender, ethnicity, and social class on adult life are consistently emphasized and interwoven throughout the text. The Adult Experience feature has interviews that highlight the personal dimension of adult development. The Applications and Interventions features emphasize the link between research and practice and explore programs, policy interventions, and treatments flowing from the research studied.
