As a result, this book has several closely related purposes. It first endeavors to explain key terms, basic methods, and the principles underlying human growth. Then it surveys and interprets factors affecting development. Analysis of developmental sequence is supplemented by an exploration of motivational and behavioral traits at each level of growth and maturation. An attempt is made to impress upon the student the continuity of human development: each age level must be considered in the light of past developments. The pattern of each stage of life is also brought into the spotlight in order to facilitate a cross-sectional understanding of the person in a particular stage of development under varying circumstances"--Preface.
