This book is a duology consisting of Child and Adolescent Development (3rd ed., First reprint with changes) and Adult Development and Ageing (2nd ed), which are also available individually. Owing to the topics covered, there is some overlapping, but this is relatively minimal.


The books are available at all main academic bookshops. Selected e-books are available for online purchase on Snapplify.

Illegal copying in any manner is a serious offence and is causing enormous financial losses to people in the book and publishing industry. It also influences the price and continuation of books significantly. As the Copyright Act protects textbooks, illegal photocopying could lead to costly financial copyright infringement claims. Do the right thing: do not become part of the crime and corruption statistics ― do not copy textbooks. It goes without saying that the fact that other people do it, is no moral and legal excuse.

We strongly recommend that you do not sell or discard your books, notes, or other learning materials once you have completed a course. When you embark upon your career, you will find that your memory is not nearly as good as you thought it was ― and that you will need those materials and information again, often desperately. Start to build up your future professional library now. The learning materials are not only meant to help you pass a test or exam ― but also to assist you in the future.
