AbstractThe 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.
