Some of the broad thematic areas will include:

  • Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood
  • Aging
  • Behavioral and Developmental Disorders
  • Cognitive Development
  • Community and Culture
  • Early and Middle Childhood
  • Education through the Lifespan
  • Genetics and Biology
  • Gender and Sexuality
  • Life Events
  • Mental Health through the Lifespan
  • Research Methods in Lifespan Development
  • Speech and Language Across the Lifespan
  • Theories and Models of Development.
This five-volume encyclopedia promises to be an authoritative, discipline-defining work for students and researchers seeking to become familiar with various approaches, theories, and empirical findings about human development broadly construed, as well as past and current research.
