Work Across the Lifespan coalesces theoretical and empirical perspectives on aging and work.  This volume examines a collection of human development theories that explain trajectories of change, including patterns of growth, maintenance, and decline across the adult lifespan.  At its core, the lifespan perspective assumes a focus on aging as a continuous process of intraindividual change and goal-based self-regulation.  In this text, the lifespan perspective serves as a lens for examining the complex relationship between aging and work.  Integrating research from the fields of developmental psychology as well as industrial, work, and organizational psychology, this authoritative reference brings together the collective thinking of researchers who study work, careers, organizations, and aging.
