From its abbreviated, no-nonsense title to its engaging, effective content, HDEV continues to offer a new genre of life-span development texts, perfect for today's Canadian learners. This second Canadian edition highlights relevant research, immediately engaging students by emphasizing the biopsychosocial framework of lifespan psychology and adding a new Erikson Today feature to provide a framework for the content and contemporizing Erikson’s theories for today’s students. This brief, affordable paperback includes– with each new copy purchased – an access code for the book’s accompanying Coursemate site. There, students will find a full suite of unique learning tools that allow students to study wherever they are, whenever they have time, and that appeal to different learning styles. These online resources include quizzes, audio downloads, video podcasts, downloadable flashcards and more.
