Description

Life-Span Developmental Psychology: Intervention presents the theoretical and methodological aspects of intervention as viewed from the life-span developmental psychology perspective. The compendium deals with three broad themes in developmental psychology: theoretical and political issues in intervention; environmental and biophysical intervention; and educational and developmental intervention. The selected papers discuss topics on the models, goals, ethics, and methods of intervention; impacts of the planned environment on the elderly on a societal and personal level; and the effects of intervention on early child development. Sociologists, psychologists, planners, researchers, and gerontologists will find the book insightful.
