Kathleen Stassen Berger
Students are introduced to the study of developmental psychology in an interactive, approachable, and culturally inclusive manner by Kathleen Stassen Berger’s textbooks, which continue to be published as top sellers edition after edition. This is accomplished by Berger’s Invitation to the Life Span in a presentation that meets the demands of addressing the breadth of the life span in a single term, and it does it in just 15 succinct chapters and an epilogue.
The latest version of Invitation to the Life Span contains a vast array of new research, particularly in rapidly evolving fields such as brain development and psychopathology, while also making use of cutting-edge new instruments for learning and instruction that are centered on media.
But throughout, as is typically the case, Kathleen Berger’s trademark voice binds it all together, with understandable explanations of scientific information, wide-ranging cultural references, and skill-building tools for sharper observation and critical thinking. [Citation needed]
