Are Psychological Models of Adult Development Still Important for the Practice of Adult Education?
Courtenay, Bradley C.
Adult Education Quarterly, v44 n3 p145-53 Spr 1994
The assumptions of influential adult development models are being questioned: that growth is linear, higher developmental levels are better, all adults want to change and grow, and models based on males apply equally to females. The extent to which knowledge of psychological development is indispensable to practice continues to be debated. (SK)
