The psychology of lifelong development as an independent discipline was established in the latter half of the 20th century. Unlike traditional developmental psychology, which focuses primarily on development in childhood and adolescence, it covers the development and changes in man throughout his entire life cycle. It is a multidisciplinary field, as it addresses psychological factors of human development as well as the social, cultural and historical context.
The monograph is divided into three parts. The first part focuses on theories of lifelong development, emphasizing modern approaches. The second part describes stages of development based on current empirical research. The third part presents the key topics in human life: successful development, happiness and meaningful life.
