Why do human beings develop as we do? Help your students gain a deeper understanding of the many interacting forces affecting infancy, childhood, adolescence and adulthood. This locally adapted textbook includes local, multicultural and indigenous issues and perspectives, local research in development, regionally relevant statistical information, and National guidelines on health.

Each chapter focuses on a domain of development such as physical growth, cognition, or personality, and traces developmental trends and influences in that domain from infancy to old age. Within each chapter, you will find sections on four life stages: infancy, childhood, adolescence and adulthood. This unique organisation enables students to comprehend the processes of transformation that occur in key areas of human development.

An important feature of the text is its emphasis on theories and how they apply to specific topics in each chapter. The text also asks students to engage more actively with the content, and includes a clear focus on the complex interactions of nature and nurture in development, more integrated coverage of culture and diversity
