UPDATE: This Life Cycle Development course has been updated and the new series will be available Spring 2015. The new series contains much of the same information, but any discussion of mental health issues will be based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) published by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2013. This course is intended to provide an overview of human development, covering the lifespan of the individual. This material includes integration of the basic concepts and principles of physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development at each major stage of life: prenatal, infancy, toddlerhood, preschool, middle childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle adulthood, and old age. The material in this series related to mental health diagnoses is based on the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision which was published in 2000. The podcasts presented in this series will include live class recordings of lecture presentations and additional pre-recorded segments that focus on frequently asked questions and concepts that often provide a challenge for many students. These recordings may also be supplemented by PDF files or handouts designed to further enhance the student’s understanding of the field of developmental psychology. These materials are intended to supplement the traditional classroom approach of my courses and to enhance the student’s learning experience. Target audience should include current students and others who wish to know more about the topic areas. The materials will not be textbook specific so that they will be useful to others. For HACC students, the purpose is to allow them an opportunity to review or catch up on lectures/class periods that they may have missed or misunderstood. For other learners outside of HACC, the purpose is to supply another resource for their learning that is both entertaining and educational. The course was originally recorded during the Fall Semester 2011 with some updates as necessary. Please send any suggestions/feedback to I hope you enjoy listening and thanks for exploring the world of developmental psychology throughout the lifespan with me.

Customer Reviews

Mr. Bailey is a great professor!

I listened to this podcast because I was taking a Developmental Psychology class online that happened to be using the same Development Across the Life Span text. Mr. Bailey does a great job of explaining the different concepts, which helped me tremendously. Thank you so much for making your lectures available to everyone!


You are great and keep the lectures interesting. I am a nursing student taking pediatrics and learning their developmental stages are required and essential. Thanks for sharing!
