Lene Arnett Jensen is Associate Professor of Psychology at Clark University, Massachusetts, USA. She is the originator of the “cultural-developmental” theoretical approach to research on human psychology. This approach encompasses what is universal and what is culturally distinctive about human development. Unlike one-size-fits-all psychological theories of the 20th century, the cultural-developmental approach provides a flexible and dynamic way to think about psychological development in today’s global world. In Dr. Jensen’s newest book, Moral Development in a Global World: Research from a Cultural-Developmental Perspective (Cambridge University Press, 2015), she argues that humans are born with a shared moral heritage and that, as we develop from childhood into adulthood, we branch off in diverse directions shaped by culture – resulting in novelty and contention. The Oxford Handbook of Human Development and Culture: An Interdisciplinary Perspective (Oxford University Press, 2015), recently edited by Dr. Jensen, provides an in-depth and comprehensive synopsis of theory and research on human development, with every chapter drawing together findings from cultures around the world.
