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.
