PSY 301 Adult Development & Life Assessment
posted by Anonymous .
I'm not sure where and how to begin to answer this question. I read the chapter but I'm still not coming up with how to answer it. I just need some help.
When you look at the idea of life stages, can we place ourselves in any self determined or appointed life stages? Are some of these self determined stages more significant than others?
If you're asking about Erikson's developmental stages, this site will help you.
Do any of these explanations describe your life now? How? Do you know of others who fit specific life stages?
So is that what it means when it say self determined or appointed life stages?
Are you asking about Erikson's life stages?
Sorry about that but no that is not what was in the chapter. The textbook that we are using is Journey of Adulthood by Bjorklund. There was nothing in the text that said it was based on Erikson's life stages.
What are Bjorklund's life stages?
I am not sure because it really does not say. Here is the topics that is covered in chapter 1 of the book. Basic Concepts in Adult
Sources of Change
Normative Age-Graded Influences
Internal Change Processes
Nonnormative Life Events
Sources of Stability
A Word about “Age”
Setting the Course: Some Guiding
Well thanks for the help, but my teacher finally emailed me back and explained it to me.
Great! I was at a loss without knowing your text book.
