Entwicklungspsychologie der Lebensspanne

Die Entwicklungspsychologie der Lebensspanne untersucht Prozesse und Mechanismen nachhaltiger Veränderungen im menschlichen Erleben und Verhalten von der Kindheit bis ins hohe Erwachsenenalter.

“Aging is a lifelong process of growing up and growing older from birth to death, moving through all the strata in society; it is not simply growing old beyond some arbitrary point in the life course“ (Riley, 1985; p. 374).
