About This Title

“One of the great strengths of Beckett’s writing is that his style is accessible to new undergraduates and he makes sure that complex material is summarized in a way that enables students to understand difficult issues.”
-Jacqueline Hughes, University of Huddersfield

Human Growth and Development, Second Edition is a bestselling introduction to emotional, psychological, intellectual and social development throughout the lifespan. Written for students training in fields such as social work, healthcare and education, the book covers topics which are central to understanding people whether they are clients, service users, patients, or pupils.

Each chapter outlines theories that explain development at different stages of life and the transitions we make between childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. For this Second Edition, a new chapter has been added (Chapter 10: It Takes a Village: the Sociological Perspective) exploring the wider social factors which influence human growth and development. Activities are provided within each chapter to help student test theoretical concepts against their own experience and intuitions.

Combining theoretical concepts and reflective learning, this book is the ideal introduction to psychosocial development for students on a wide range of professional courses.
