Human development refers to the multidisciplinary study of how people change and how they remain the same over time.

Human development is the study of the psychological, social, and physical changes that occur throughout the lifespan. Human development is a broad field that encompasses many different areas of study, including child development, adolescent development, and adult development.

Human development research typically focuses on understanding how people grow, change, and adapt over time. This includes studying the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional changes that occur at different stages of life, as well as the factors that influence these changes.

Examples of human development in psychology might include research on how children learn and develop language skills, how adolescents navigate the transition to adulthood, or how adults cope with the challenges of aging. Psychologists may also study the impact of different experiences and environments on human development, such as the role of parenting styles or the influence of cultural and societal factors.
