Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Work Across the Lifespan coalesces lifespan theoretical and lifespan-based empirical perspectives on aging and work. The books examines human development theories that explain patterns of growth, trajectories of change and maintenance of continuities across the entirety of life. Using the implicit focus of these theories on aging as a guide to intra-individual change and goal-based self-regulation processes, the book examines the relationship between work and aging. Drawing upon developmental psychology, life course sociology, microeconomics, and critical gerontology, this authoritative reference brings together the collective thinking of researchers who study aging and working, and aging and careers. Summarizes key tenets of lifespan theories Draws upon theories from work and organizational psychology, organizational behavior, and human resources management Applies theories to work, organizational life and careers Examines age and work-related processes Provides an exclusive lifespan focus on work and aging Focuses on aging as a continuous intraindividual change process
