This article explores psychological development from a lifespan perspective, with a special focus on the periods of youth, adulthood and old age. These phases, like infancy and childhood before them, are exciting periods of developmental change. As adolescents embark upon mature lives independently, and as adults progress through the successive milestones and turning points of mature life like marriage, a new baby, a new career, the launching of adult children into independence, retirement from a lifelong career, the birth of a grandchild, or widowhood , new opportunities for psychological growth are continually presented. At the same time, the range of available choices may narrow, losses will arise, and problems and disappointments will almost certainly occur. These adversities, too, will provide the impetus and opportunity for psychological adjustment, and gains in maturity can arise out of successful coping late in life, just as they did during childhood. The lifespan approach to the study of human development seeks to understand these continuities and discontinuities in psychological growth and change over the whole of life.

Human Development and Performance Throughout the Lifespan. Anne Cronin , Mary Beth Mandich. It provides a broad, occupation-based viewpoint of development and performance throughout all life stages with an emphasis on the factors that influence daily participation and optimal performance of desired daily life tasks. The authors use a life course conceptual model as an organizational foundation for clinical reasoning to help readers understand how to implement the activity- and participation-based goals and outcomes for therapy. Written by an occupational therapist and a physical therapist, the book incorporates chapters by leading experts in human development, giving users cutting-edge information and a wide range of perspectives. By integrating information from the International Classification of Function and Disability ICF with a developmental life-task perspective, the book gives both newcomers and experienced professionals an essential, contemporary frame of reference.
