HDFS #5 chapter 2: a resource theory of ???, nature vs. nurture, reaction ranges Types of Social Support informational, physical (goods or services), ideological (understanding and valuing the perspective that the person is taking, one your side of the argument, supporter), relational (being interested in your case and being supportive of your circumstance) no degree and no grant necessary for this type of career. it’s a decision as to how you want to interact with other people. all necessary and enhances greater wellbeing and easier transition Life Course Central Constructs: Linked Lives who travels with whom over a course of time in life? How these configurations change across tie and contexts? Social convoys, a source of support and helps to overcome challenges that may come up. Linked relationship wise with people around you. Cumulative impact of Earlier Life Events on Subsequent Ones Sequencing : normative or nonnormative Timing b/t transitions : when it happens and its impact on current circumstances Family status and position experienced in life is molded by the cumulative effects of history and specific conditions : what are you investing now that’ll get you to where you want to be later Subjective Life Course having a sense of where you are, who you are, what your life IS right now; good or bad. Turning points : significant alteration of trajectory and may be linked to transitions, which are important in personal and family histories because it may pose new challenges you are not used to or know how to handle. ^ Transitions/Turning Points : developmental changes (relative and functional) and crucial times of support help to define our perceptions of life over time. Even the smallest things/inputs can bring about a BIG change/result. Developmental Cascades is getting things going in a particular direction, setting the course for subsequent development, and getting off on the “right foot” which can be initiated by making a “smart” choice that favors your goal that may be achieved in the future, despite your likes and dislikes. CHAPTER 2 : Genetics Translation and Expression of the Genetic Code Genotype is a genetic makeup a person inherits whereas Phenotype is characteristics/traits that are expressed. Gene Expression is the activation of particular genes in cells that come up in particular time. Be there, be functional, and primed to switch on at a specific time. It’s guided by genetic influences and environmental factors, which determines how a genotype is translated into a phenotype. Nature and Nurture ALWAYS interact impossible to have genes expressed in the absence of any environment, which is altered throughout a person’s life. Where and How a life is lived, affecting genetic predispositions. Environments and experiences regulate the turning on and expression of different genes, environments alter people’s gene! An important Genetic Construct reaction range: multiple phenotypes expressed by a single genotype when interaction with various types of environment is involved. Gene-Environment Interactions how environments differentially affect people with different genotypes (reaction ranges) and genotypes are systematically related to different environmental conditions (geneenvironment correlations) Heredity and Environment Interaction behavior genetics investigate the influence of heredity and environment on individual differences in human traits and development like twin studies and adoption studies are done to help distinguish what is caused by heredity and environment. Questioning why and what causes the differences in development Correlations b/t the two look at individuals’ genes that may influence environments to which they are exposed that can either weaken or strengthen genetic disposition; taking the child’s age into account as to when that influence occurs and the experiences outside of their family. Passive genotypeenvironment correlations: having biological parents provide rearing environment Evocative genotypeenvironment correlations: human interaction/influence/impact; people a child interacts with changes the characteristics. may elicit certain types of characteristics Active (nichepicking) genotypeenvironment correlations: child seeking out a specific type of environment they feel comfortable/compatible/stimulates which occurs more frequently with increasing age.
