This original work integrates adult development, psychotherapy, and culture in a postmodern framework emphasizing the co-constructive, continual evolution that takes place in all three areas. Gerald D. Young bases his approach on a 25-step neo-Piagetian developmental lifespan model to illustrate the tack taken in each area. Helpful tables summarize specific aspects of the 25 steps, and key figures outline a sociocultural model of cognitive developmental based on the cognitive (mis)perception of the other.
