Developmental Theories through the Life Cycle


This book presents the life-cycle theories of Sigmund Freud, Jean Piaget, Nancy Chodorow, Heinz Hartmann, Erik Erikson, Robert White, and others and examines their impact on development theory through infancy, toddlerhood, middle childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. Acknowledging that no one theory encompasses all aspects of human development, this volume also warns of the consequences of excluding sexual and racial minorities in developmental research and results.
