About the Authors
  • How much change is possible over a lifetime and across generations? What is realistic in what we can do to promote healthy human development in our world? A group of leading international scholars in the fields of psychology and psychiatry, economics, and sociology address these important questions. Contributions cover marriage, divorce, and "living together"; poverty or economic disadvantage; and psychological traits and health, and how these affect parents and their children. Each section also has a chapter on interventions to improve lives.

    • Part of the series of volumes from the Jacobs Foundation Conferences
    • The concept of human development broadened to include not just psychological growth but also economic potential, family formation, and partnership behavior

    "A new look at the nature-nurture issue, presenting it as an integrated system in which there is interaction and interdependence and in which causality is almost never linear or caused by only one factor....A very powerful example of the need for professionals to be conversant in and with other disciplines...bringing together the fields of economics, demography, sociology, psychology, and psychiatry....An extraordinary volume that deals with fundamental questions about human development" Contemporary Psychology
