Product Description


"Editors Heckhausen and Dweck have brought together an eminent roster of motivation researchers who provide rich and provocative ideas. The book is recommended to colleagues who consider themselves motivation researchers, developmentalists, social psychologists and more."
--Contemporary Psychology

Book Description

Motivation used to be seen as a trait that people had or didn't have. Now we think of motivation as involving many processes (thoughts, feelings, and actions) that occur as people pursue their goals. These processes help us understand how one person differs from another motivationally , and how a given person can change over the life span. In this book, a group of internationally renowned scholars discuss their research on motivation, highlighting processes that both help people and hinder them over the life course as they attempt to reach their goals.
