About the Authors
  • The influence of the lifespan approach has been an important feature of recent research in developmental psychology, as has a growing interest in the relationship between personality and development. Edited by two distinguished psychologists and including the work of many of the leading figures in the field, this important new book explores the relationship between personality and development. It is unique in focusing on successful development, whereas developmental psychology in the past seems to have focused almost entirely on problem behavior and risk of maladaption.

    • Takes a lifespan approach to development
    • Looks at the relationship between personality and development
    • Focuses on successful development

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The editors and authors are to be congratulated for the quality of the collection … The book is recommended for any scholar interested in personality, development, and adaptive and maladaptive lives.' International Journal of Behavioural Development

    'The merits of the volume lie in the range of approaches covered, the different longitudinal studies encompassed from Europe, US and New Zealand, the strong emphasis placed on social factors but also encapsulating psychological, physiological and historical change. In an era where personality investigation has become a 'gene hunt' it is refreshing to see openly social explanations for human behaviour and development.' Psychological Medicine
