Growth and Development Through the Lifespan by John F. Travers

Book Description

As part of the "Quick Look Nursing" series, "Growth and Development" provides information from the nursing core curriculum. This text gives an overview of human growth and development from conception through later adult life using a biopsychosocial framework. The topics are organized into short chapters accompanied by a comprehensive illustration of the subject matter allowing students to grasp a large amount of information quickly. The book offers Board style questions and explanations at the end of each section as a means of accurate and immediate self-assessment. "Growth and Development" is designed for nursing students and healthcare professionals to help them understand the various ages and stages of human development. By having a thorough understanding of this important topic, nursing professionals can improve their work with clients. In this resource, biological, psychological and social information is covered. The biological information includes genetics, foetal development, teratogens, nutritional requirements, physical milestones during childhood, puberty, normal physical changes that occur with aging, and risk factors for illness. Psychological information includes major theories of development, including Freud, Erikson and Piaget. Normative development of cognition and information processing, motivation and moral reasoning are covered, as are developmental differences and mental health problems. Social information includes the role of families, peers, school and society in the lives of children, adolescents and adults.
