    In these 24 lectures, probe the field of "human development"; the science that studies how we learn and develop psychologically, from birth to the end of life. This very young science not only enables us to understand children and help them develop optimally, but also gives us profound insights into who we are as adults. Professor Watson introduces you to the six theories that have had perhaps the greatest influence on this field

    Where does Theories of Human Development rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first audible book I've used and I used it as preparation for the Human Growth and Development CLEP exam. I thought that the speaker spoke very slowly so I had to increase the speed to 2x. Once that was done I would calmly listen to it in the car. I really enjoyed all the examples the author provided as they are very applicable to current psychology beliefs and practices. My one complaint/suggestion was that the ecological systems theory wasn't explained; macrosystems, exosystems, microsystem, mesosystem, chronosystem, etc. Additionally, I don't think this lecture series really stressed the importance of operant conditioning and the difference between that and classical conditioning. If it could be done, I'd ask for the same lecturer to just go into those aspects a bit more. I supplemented these lectures with CLEP practice questions (an 80 question practice exam), and the Developmental Psychology Outline from Kaplans GRE psychology book.
