ISBN: 9780730363484, 9780730355069

The fourth Australasian edition of Lifespan Development, 4th Australasian Edition (Hoffnung et al.) is an ideal resource offering for undergraduate students in both Australia and New Zealand and explores human physical, cognitive and social development — from conception through to the end of life. Covering the latest local and international research, Lifespan Development  will prepare you for both your course and career.

Available as a full colour printed textbook with an interactive eBook code, this title enables every student to master concepts and succeed in assessment by taking the roadblocks out of self-study, with features that are designed to get the most out of what you’re learning.

This edition includes enhanced coverage of developmental theories, and increased integrated coverage of cross-cultural and Indigenous issues unique to the multicultural societies of Australia and New Zealand, which is complemented by features like expert insight videos that connect the theoretical with real-world cases, Concept Check questions that are embedded throughout the text and provide instant feedback to help reinforce comprehension in what you’re learning, curated websites at the end of each chapter for those who want to learn more, and the opportunity to work between the online (interactive e-text) and offline (print) to cater to how you study best.

Features

  • A selection of focused content that have been hand-picked content containing the best questions and videos.
  • We made lifespan development concepts fun with local, real examples, multicultural views and theory in practice boxes, plus videos of local developmental psychology experts that help bring concepts to life.
  • You get the best of both worlds: a full-colour textbook with an interactive eBook so you can switch between reading something tangible and studying with the online (or offline!) learning resources.
