Show synopsis "Chronologically organized, this book recognizes that a woman's life experiences change as she goes through different age stages." In this rapidly expanding field of psychology, Etaugh and Bridges present this new book which draws on a rich blend of current and classical research to present a broad range of issues relevant to girls and women throughout their lifespan. Instead of the traditional, topical approach to the subject, the authors employ a chronological approach. This approach communicates the complexity and interconnections among physical, educational/employment, and interpersonal experiences of girls and women during each developmental stage of life. The inclusion of classic studies, up-to-date research, an engaging, first-person writing style, and the authors' own personal experiences helps construct a non-hierarchical relationship between the authors and their readers." For anyone interested in the psychology of women or gender studies.
