Lifespan Developmental Psychology, Addiction and Recovery
Lifespan developmental psychology examines mental growth and change throughout the human lifespan. It studies how thoughts, feelings and behaviors change during a person’s life. Although there are typical pathways of development that most individuals follow, no two people are exactly alike in the way they change and mature over time.
To explain someone’s development, psychologists consider, among other things, the events and environments that have affected or prevented growth and change across the lifespan. Looking at addiction and recovery through the lens of lifespan developmental psychology helps experts develop effective interventions for preventing and treating addiction.
