human development in general

Creo que en el contexto, el termino 'development" suena mas apropiado; "training" me parece mas limitado y casi en el sentido de capacitacion y entrenamiento.

human formation in general

This is a proper translation for the pedagogical principle "formación humana". Just as it is not in common usage in Spanish (unfortunately), so neither in English. Yet this is the correct term, as the links below attest, and as I know from my own experience in designing pedagogical programs.

In the formative process, the family is indispensable. The family is the appropriate environment for the **human formation** of the younger generation.
