Adult development & aging :biopsychosocial perspectives

 <內容簡介>Not only is everyone around you aging, but the issues that are raised within
this field extend from the philosophical to practical. Why do living things age?
How will job markets be affected by our aging society? Will you age differently
than your parents and grandparents? In this Third Edition of Adult Development
and Aging: Biopsychosocial Perspectives, Susan Krauss Whitbourne makes an
important contribution to the educational mission of the field by providing
accurate and current information and a positive perspective on the years of
adulthood and old age. Using the biopsychosocial model, the text encourages
students to think about the multiple interactions among the domains of biology,
psychology, and sociology. Now revised with substantially updated references and
recent findings, the Third Edition combines both research and applied
perspectives, and presents a complete picture of the aging process, with enough
information on both adulthood and later adulthood to allow instructors to alter
their emphasis according to the needs and interests of students. <章節目錄>1. Themes and Issues in Adult Development and Aging. 2. Models of Development: Nature and Nurture in Adulthood. 3.
