Emotional Development Across the Lifespan by Linda A. CamrasUnique in its dual focus on emotion and lifespan development, this text weaves together theory, research, and practical clinical implications for fostering children's emotional well-being. The author examines how emotions are experienced, expressed, understood, and regulated from infancy through later adulthood, surveying both typical and atypical development. For each stage, chapters highlight the interrelated influences of temperament, neurobiology, and the social environment, and distinguish universal processes from those that vary across cultures. The book presents current knowledge about specific emotions, probes the causes and consequences of emotional maladjustment, and reviews evidence-based and promising interventions. Innovative methods, examples, and meta-analyses are described; key terms are defined within chapters and in an end-of-book glossary.

Human Development and Human Life by Michael SloteThis book begins with a discussion of the human life cycle and then uses that discussion and other ideas to paint a general picture of what human lives are like. It draws on modern concepts from psychology and social science in order to portray an image of human life and lives and to enable readers to easily understand the notion of human development in a very specific and directed way. Although cognitive development and the development of motor skills are two examples of forms of human development, this book homes in on a particular, and arguably more synoptic, way of seeing our development, which is in relation to and occurs within the human life cycle. This book is an enlightening read for a broad range of philosophy scholars, articulating and defending a view that is neither as pessimistic nor as optimistic about human life as previous views have been.
