Adult Development & Aging: Biopsychosocial Perspectives



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.
